ACSR/AW is composed out of 1350-H19 aluminum wires surrounding an aluminum clad steel core.
Conductor Properties:
ACSR/AW has as high breaking load as ACSR but better conductivity
ACSR/AW is considered less sensitive to corrosion due to its steel wires being protected by aluminum layer.
ACSR/AW is recommended for use as a transmission cable between the power station and substations, and as primary and secondary distribution cable.
Moseroth ACSR/AW meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:
• B-230 Aluminum Wire, 1350-H19 for Electrical Purposes.
• B-502 Aluminum-Clad Steel Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Aluminum-Clad Steel Reinforced.
• B-549 Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Aluminum-Clad Steel Reinforced (ACSR/AW).
