Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced
- suitable for use in all practical spans on wood poles, transmission towers, and other structures. Applications range from long, extra high voltage (EHV) transmission lines to sub-service spans at distribution or utilization voltages on private premises. ACSR combines the lighter weight advantage of 1350 alloy aluminum with the high tensile strength and toughness of steel. The combined light weight and high conductivity of aluminum with strength of the steel core enables higher tensions, less sag, and longer spans than any alternative.
