Overview
DESCRIPTION

An outer layer of Aluminum conductor concentrically stranded over the central core of solid Aluminum alloy or Stranded Aluminum alloy wire to form ACAR conductor.

APPLICATION

ACAR conductors are used as bare overhead conductor for power transmission and distribution lines,where higher capacity and strength for equal weight are prime line considerations.ACAR is the solution over ACSR due to its better strength-to-weight ratio.
