Bare Stranded Copper Conductors
Bare Stranded Galvanized Steel Conductors
Galvanized Steel Wire Strand refers to any steel wire product that has been subjected to a galvanizing process to improve its corrosion resistance. This process typically involves dipping the finished wire product into a bath of heated zinc compound to form a scratch and corrosion-resistant coating across the entire surface of the wire. Its low cost and ease of production make galvanized steel wire ideal for mass-produced corrosion-resistant wire products. The galvanized steel strand wires have excellent mechanical properties. The galvanized steel wire strand is used for overhead ground lines or electrical power transmission lines.
Bare A.C.S.R Wire
A.C.S.R. Wires are used as bare overhead guard wire conductors. It offers optimal Strength for line design. Variable steel core stranding enables desired strength to be achieved without sacrificing ampacity. The outer strands of A.C.S.R. Wires are from high-purity aluminum, chosen for good conductivity, low weight, and low cost. The center strand is the steel for additional strength in order to support the conductor.
Copper-Clad Steel Wire
Copper-Clad Steel Wire combines the electrical characteristics of copper with the mechanical properties of Steel. Often used for buried Ground Grid Systems, Overhead Ground Wire, and Messenger Wire, it can resist mechanical damage during installation, as well as electrical damage during a fault condition. Copper-Clad Steel has virtually no scrap value, greatly reducing the potential for theft. Construction Dead Soft Annealed (DSA} Copperclad Steel (CCS} conductors is a concentric lay-Stranded construction. The CCS Strands are a 40% conductivity grade of material using a low carbon steel core rendering greater flexibility to enable easier handling during installation. NOTE: The ampacity rating and the DC and AC resistance of the Copper Clad Steel Wire conductor is not equivalent to that of the copper conductor. So to select the correct equivalent please contact our engineers.
