AAC all aluminium conductors
Stranded aluminium conductors produced from primary aluminium wires with minimum 99,7% Al content. This type of conductors is used for short distances between poles and optimal for seaside installations due to high corrosion resistance. They are also used as a semi-product for production of insulated cables. AAC can be stranded in one or more layers depending on customer needs. Main advantages are determined by its low weight and excellent conductivity. Semifinished products used in cable technology are:
AACC all aluminium conductors – compressed: Compressed conductors are run through a die that “presses out” the space between single wires. In terms of diameter, this category of conductors is in between standard concentric and compact conductors.
AACS all aluminium conductors – sectional/sector: Sectional conductors are stranded and shaped to a sector of a circle. These are used as a raw material for cable production.
AAAC all aluminium alloy conductors
Stranded conductors are produced mostly from AlMgSi alloys with very good strength to weight ratio, better mechanical resistance than AAC and better corrosion resistance than ACSR. With good electrical properties and sag characteristics they are used for power distribution and transmission lines.
