Concentric lay stranded Aluminium Conductor (AAC) is made up of one or more strands of hard drawn 1350 aluminum alloy. Bare all-aluminum Conductors (AAC) are concentric-lay-stranded, consisting of one or more layers of wire wrapped helically around a straight round central wire. Each successive layer has six wires more than the layer immediately beneath. Greater flexibility is provided by increasing the number strands for a specific cross-sectional area. The more commonly used strandings are 7, 19, 37, 61 and 91.
All Aluminum Conductors are widely used for its following features:
Optimum economy is provided since the lighter weight means lower unit length coats, easier handling in installation and less-complex fittings.
All-aluminum conductors have an inherent high corrosion resistance due to their homogeneous construction.
AAC conductor has high current carrying capacity
It is widely used for its excellent resistance to corrosion, thus ideal for use in coastal area
Suitable for low & medium voltage lines in urban area
