Overhead Conductors
TransPowr Bare Overhead Conductors
for Transmission and Distribution
General Cable manufactures an extensive line of bare aluminum
overhead products for both distribution and transmission applications.
General Cables TransPowr bare overhead products are manufactured
and tested in accordance with the latest applicable CSA and ASTM
specifications.
General Cables bare overhead conductors are available as A1 aluminum stranded conductors (ASC), A2 aluminum alloy stranded conductors (AASC),
aluminum conductor steel-reinforced (ACSR or A1S1A), and aluminum conductor steel-supported (ACSS). A1 or ASC consists of 1350-H19 aluminum, is
lightweight and corrosion-resistant and is commonly used in overhead line installations where higher strength or temperature ratings are not required.
A2 or AASC consists of high-strength 6101 T81 aluminum alloy and is commonly used for overhead line installations adjacent to ocean coastlines where
there can be a problem of corrosion in the steel of an ACSR construction. ACSR or A1S1A combines the light weight and good conductivity of 1350-H19
aluminum with the high tensile strength and ruggedness of steel. ACSR provides higher tension, less sag and longer span lengths than A1 (ASC) and A2
(AASC) overhead conductors. Standard ACSR designs are manufactured with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel (S1A).
With more than 35 years of experience, General Cable applies the same tried and true process pioneered by Reynolds to offer TransPowr ACSS
conductors. With its unique ability to operate at higher temperatures and withstand harsh environmental factors, TransPowr ACSS allows utilities to
modernize and optimize the nations electrical grid with minimal capital investment. TransPowr ACSS offers better performance over ACSR when it
operates at high temperatures without detriment to its mechanical properties and with significantly less sag, allowing for much higher ampacity ratings.
Standard ACSS designs are manufactured with 1350-O aluminum and regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy coated steel (/MA2).
With several steel core options such as mischmetal, aluminum-clad steel and galvanized steel, TransPowr ACSS is easily customized to meet specific
applications and performance levels. TransPowr ACSS is an affordable, long-lasting conductor with improved performance and reliability, made from
aluminum and steel components that have been used in transmission lines for more than a hundred years. With thousands of miles installed throughout
North America, ACSS is a proven, trustworthy overhead conductor technology and remains the most accepted solution for high-temperature
performance.
See the following page for a complete list and description of the numerous options that are available for TransPowr overhead products. For ACSR
(A1S1A) and ACSS concentric round or trapezoidal conductors, a myriad of aluminum and steel stranding combinations are available. In addition, a
variety of steel strengths and types of coatings or claddings is available. Trapezoidal AAC, ACSR and ACSS conductor designs are listed in separate
catalog sections. Compact aluminum and ACSR stranded conductor information are also listed.
While General Cable manufactures a complete range of bare overhead products, only the most popular designs are described in the following section.
Details of other conductor sizes and designs are available upon request.
General Cable provides technical assistance and advice on any challenges associated with conductor design, installation or application. Engineering
services are available for specification review, specification development and conductor application inquiries. For more information, contact your General
Cable sales representative or e-mail infoca@generalcable.com.

TransPowr Bare Overhead Options:
Non-Specular (NS) Overhead aluminum electrical conductors, when installed,
typically have a shiny surface appearance. This reflective or specular surface
can make a transmission line more noticeable in appearance against the background
landscape. A factory treatment process of the outer surface of the aluminum wires
can render the surface finish into a dull, non-specular matte gray finish. This non reflective or de-glared surface finish allows the conductor to become less visible
when observed from a distance and enables the transmission line to blend in with
the skyline or landscape background. The NS surface finish option is available for
all types of bare overhead conductors that have aluminum outer strand wires.
High-Conductivity Aluminum (HC) The normal 1350 hard-drawn aluminum
material used for an ACSR-type conductor has a minimum lot average conductivity
value of 61.2% IACS (International Association Copper Standard). By carefully
selecting the feed stock of the raw materials and manufacturing process used
to refine the aluminum and convert it into rolled rod, a purer grade of 1350
aluminum can be manufactured. When this is done, the aluminum minimum
lot average conductivity value is increased to 62.2%. The use of the higher
conductivity metal means the overall electrical resistance of the conductor is
lowered. Lowering the electrical resistance means there are lower line losses
incurred in the transmission line.
Mischmetal Alloy-Coated Steel Inside an ACSR and ACSS conductor, there
is the stranded steel core. To provide corrosion protection for the steel, traditionally
zinc has been used to coat (galvanize) the steel. In recent years, a zinc alloy
material has also been used. This material, a 95% zinc/5% aluminum alloy, is
available as an optional steel wire coating material. The alloy, known as zinc-5%
aluminum mischmetal alloy, demonstrates improved corrosion resistance and
high temperature exposure compatibility as compared to regular zinc. For ACSS
conductors, mischmetal alloy-coated steel is recommended for applications
where the conductor will see exposure to temperatures in excess of 200C.

Ultra-High-Strength Steel In response to industry needs, there are new high strength carbon steel materials now available for ACSR and ACSS conductors.
The higher strength steel overcomes some of the previous transmission line design
limitations encountered with available conductor selection options. The availability
of these new steel materials boosts the conductor rated strength and can enable
enhanced sag and tension calculation results. General Cable identifies the new
ultra-high-strength steel as GA5 (for zinc-coated steel) and MA5 (for the zinc-5%
aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel) strength grade designations. General
Cable participated in the creation of two new ASTM standards to introduce these new
steel types (ASTM B957 for GA5 steel and ASTM B958 for MA5 steel).

Overhead Conductors
TransPowr Bare Overhead Options (contd.):
Aluminum-Clad Steel (20SA [AW]) In Canada, the 20SA (ASTM AW) identifier is used for aluminum-clad steel. Elsewhere in
the world, other designations are used. Aluminum-clad steel is chosen for coastal locations or applications where there are severe
corrosion concerns for the steel core and a zinc or mischmetal coated steel will not last. Aluminum-clad steel also offers the
advantage of having a higher conductivity than conventional galvanized steel wires. The higher conductivity will reduce the line loss
parameters of the transmission line, saving energy and reducing the day-to-day operating cost. In an ACSS conductor, aluminum-clad
steel can allow the conductor to be operated up to 250C. Aluminum-clad steel core wires are manufactured in accordance with
CAN/CSA C61232.
Compact (Smooth Body) Conductors General Cable can supply compact AAC (to CSA 49.5) and compact ACSR (to CSA 49.2)
smooth body type conductor products for distribution conductor sizes. Compact conductors reduce the overall diameter of the
conductor, thus lowering the resultant wind and ice loads on the conductor. In heavy ice load locations, the compact conductor option
may be an interesting design option to explore. Contact your General Cable sales representative for additional information.
Trapezoidal (TW) Conductors For overhead transmission conductor applications, General Cable supplies TW compact-style
conductors. The aluminum wires in a round wire stranded conductor leave approximately 25% of an air gap between .the aluminum
strands. Compacting the aluminum strands into the trapezoidal (TW) shape allows you to significantly reduce this .empty air space and
fill it with aluminum. By compacting the metal space, it allows you to build a conductor that either a) has t.he same cross-sectional
area of aluminum and a reduced overall conductor diameter or b) has the same overall conductor diameter as before, but now
squeezes in more aluminum cross-sectional area. Reducing the overall diameter of the conductor provides the .advantage of lowering
the resultant ice and wind loading on the conductor. Maintaining the same diameter by increasing the aluminum metal content means
you lower the power loss in the conductor for day-to-day operations, as well as having a higher overall conductor ampacity rating.
With TW conductors, the growing trend is to utilize the same diameter/increased aluminum cross-sectional area option.
Aluminum Alloy Steel Reinforced Conductors (A2/SxA) General Cable is capable of building ACSR conductors where
the A1 (1350 H19) aluminum wires are replaced with the higher strength A2 (6101 T81) or A4 (6101 T83) aluminum alloy
material. These type of super high strength conductors are used in river crossings or for long span applications where the traditional
ACSR conductor will not work. Contact General Cable to find out more details about these customized conductor constructions and
see how they might be of benefit to you and your line design application.
TransPowr bare overhead conductors can be designed to meet special applications and requirements. For designs not found in these
catalog pages, contact your General Cable sales representative.

TransPowr A1 (ASC) Bare Overhead Conductor to CAN/CSA C61089

All-Aluminum 1350 Conductor Concentric-Lay-Stranded

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
Bare all-aluminum 1350 (A1 or ASC) are
concentric-lay-stranded conductors 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 of strands
for a specific cross-sectional area. A1 or ASC
conductors are manufactured in accordance with
the requirements of the latest applicable issue of
CAN/CSA C61089.
A1 or ASC (Aluminum Stranded Conductor)
conductors are CSA reference terms. The Canadian
constructions are similar in design (strand
component size and configuration) to the ASTM
B231 specifications. Differences lie in the methods
used to calculate the rated strength and dc
resistance values.
The commonly used strandings are 7, 19, 37,
61 and 91. The sizes and strandings listed on
the following pages are common examples used
in overhead lines. Metric (mm2) sizes are also
available.

Complete Conductor (contd.):


Class AA strandings are used for bare overhead
lines. The direction of lay of the outer layer is righthand and is normally reversed in successive layers.
The temper is full hard drawn (H19).
Class A strandings are used primarily for overhead
conductors which are to be covered with weatherresistant materials. Greater flexibility is provided
than Class AA. The outer layer is right-hand, and
the temper is generally H19. Successive layers are
normally reverse lay.

Features and Benefits:


Optimum economy is provided since the lighter
weight means lower unit length costs, easier
handling in installation and less complex fittings.
All-aluminum conductors have an inherent high
corrosion resistance due to their homogeneous
construction.

Applications:
Stranded bare A1 or ASC 1350 all-aluminum
conductors are used for overhead line installations
where design parameters do not require the higher
strength or temperature ratings provided by ACSR,
ACSS or other type of bare conductor.

Options:
Compact aluminum strands (CSA C49.5)
Trapezoidal-shaped aluminum strands (/TW)
High-Conductivity aluminum (/HC) (62.2% IACS)
Non-Specular surface finish (/NS)

(2) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(3) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 32C ambient temperature, 1.98 ft/sec (0.6 m/s) crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of
emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 42 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting
in 95.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(4) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by
0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(2) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(3) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 32C ambient temperature, 1.98 ft/sec (0.6 m/s) crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of
emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 42 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting
in 95.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(4) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by
0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

TransPowr Compact (Smooth Body) ASC Bare Overhead Conductor


to CSA C49.5 All-Aluminum Compact Stranded Conductor

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
Smooth Body bare all-aluminum 1350 (A1 or ASC)
are compact concentric-lay-stranded conductors
consisting of one or more layers of wire wrapped
helically around a straight round central wire.
Smooth Body conductors are manufactured in
accordance with the requirements of the latest
applicable issue of CSA C49.5.
A1 or ASC (Aluminum Stranded Conductor) are
CSA reference terms. The Canadian constructions
are similar in design (strand component size and
configuration) to the ASTM B400 specification.
Differences lie in the methods used to calculate
the rated strength and dc resistance values.
The commonly used strandings are 7, 18, and 19.
The sizes and strandings listed on the following
pages are common examples used in overhead
lines. Metric (mm2) sizes are also available.

Complete Conductor (contd.):


Class AA strandings are used for bare overhead
lines. The direction of lay of the outer layer is righthand and is reversed in successive layers. The
temper is full hard drawn (H19).
Class A strandings are used primarily for overhead
conductors which are to be covered with weatherresistant materials. Greater flexibility is provided
than Class AA. The direction of lay of the outer
layers is right-hand and is reversed in successive
layers. The temper is full hard drawn (H19).

Features and Benefits:

Applications:
Stranded bare A1 or ASC 1350 all-aluminum
conductors are used for overhead line installations
where design parameters do not require the higher
strength or temperature ratings provided by ACSR,
ACSS or other type of bare conductor.

Options:
High-Conductivity aluminum (/HC) (62.2% IACS)
Non-Specular surface finish (/NS)
For more information, contact your General Cable sales
representative or e-mail infoca@generalcable.com.

The conductors are smaller in diameter and offer


lower ice load/wind resistance profile factors.
The conductors are lighter in weight than ACSR,
which translates into lower unit length costs, easier
handling in installation and less complex fittings.
All-aluminum conductors have an inherent high
corrosion resistance due to their homogeneous
construction.

TransPowr AAC/TW Bare Overhead Conductor to ASTM B778

Trapezoidal All-Aluminum 1350 Concentric-Lay-Stranded

17 Wire 2 Layer

34 Wire 3 Layer

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
TransPowr AAC/TW is a trapezoidal 1350
H19 aluminum (AAC) concentric-lay-stranded
conductor. The aluminum strands are trapezoidal
in shape. The wedge-shaped aluminum strands
enable a more compact alignment of the
aluminum wires.
Conductor designs that maintain the same
circular mil cross-sectional area of aluminum
as a conventional round conductor result in a
TW conductor that is 10 to 15 percent smaller in
overall diameter.
Conductor designs that maintain the same overall
diameter as a conventional round conductor result
in a TW conductor that has 20 to 25 percent more
aluminum cross-sectional area packed in.
The AAC/TW conductors are manufactured in
accordance with the requirements of the latest
issue of ASTM B778.
The conductor consists of two, three, four or five
layers of aluminum 1350-H19 wires. The sizes
and constructions listed on this and the following
pages are examples used in overhead lines.

52 Wire 4 Layer

Features and Benefits:


TransPowr AAC /TW has a continuous operating
temperature rating of 75C. Operation of the
conductor at elevated temperatures may increase
the conductor sag properties and lower the rated
tensile strength of the conductor.
AAC/TW conductors constructed of equivalent
aluminum circular mil cross-sectional area provide
a conductor that is smaller in overall diameter
than the equivalent conventional round wire AAC
conductor. The reduced conductor diameter is
advantageous in reducing the effects of ice and
wind loading on the conductor.
AAC/TW conductors constructed to equivalent
overall diameter enable a greater circular mil
cross-sectional area of aluminum within the
conductor, allowing a significant increase in
conductor current-carrying capacity.

Electrical Parameters:
The electrical parameters for the trapezoidal AAC
equivalent circular mil area and equivalent overall
diameter conductors may be found in the last table
of this section.

Options:
Compact aluminum strands
Trapezoidal-shaped aluminum strands (/TW)
High-Conductivity aluminum (/HC) (62.2% IACS)
Non-Specular surface finish (/NS)
At the present time, CAN/CSA C61089 does not
recognize TW conductor designs. The information
provided on the following pages is from our US catalog.
For more information, contact your General Cable sales
representative or e-mail infoca@generalcable.com.

Applications:
Trapezoidal 1350 H19 aluminum conductors
(AAC/TW) are used for overhead transmission lines
where design parameters do not require the higher
strength or temperature ratings provided by ACSR,
ACSS, or other type conductors.

(2) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(3) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5
coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft
of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(4) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius.

(2) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(3) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5
coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft
of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(4) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius.

TransPowr A2 (AASC) Bare Overhead Conductor


to CAN/CSA C61089 Aluminum Alloy Conductor Concentric-Lay-Stranded

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
A2 conductors are high strength aluminum
alloy, concentric-lay-stranded conductors. They
are similar in construction and appearance to
the A1 or AAC all-aluminum conductors. The
conductors are manufactured in accordance with
the requirements of the latest applicable issue of
CAN/CSA C61089.
A2 or AASC (Aluminum Alloy Stranded Conductor)
are CSA reference terms.
The A2/AASC conductors are manufactured from
a heat-treated, magnesium-silicon high strength
aluminum alloy.
The aluminum strands consist of a concentric
stranded cable of 7, 19, 37, or more wires. The
sizes and strandings listed on the following pages
are common examples used in overhead lines.

Features and Benefits:


Aluminum alloy conductors have a number
of advantages over the use of the ACSR or
all-aluminum conductors.
Lower power losses than for equivalent
single aluminum layer ACSR conductors. (The
inductive effect of the steel core in the ACSR is
eliminated.)
Simpler fittings than those required for ACSR.
Excellent corrosion resistance in environments
conducive to galvanic corrosion in ACSR.
Strength and sags approximately the same as
for equivalent 6/1 and 26/7 ACSR conductors.
Outside diameters are the same as for standard
ACSR conductors, permitting interchangeability
of fittings.
Greater resistance to abrasion than that for
1350 wires in all-aluminum or ACSR conductors.

Applications:
A2 aluminum alloy conductors are
extensively used for overhead distribution and
transmission lines adjacent to ocean coastlines
where there can be a problem of corrosion in the
steel of an ACSR construction.
The aluminum alloy conductors are used in place
of single layer ACSR conductors (i.e., 6 AWG to
4/0 AWG) to reduce power losses in overhead
distribution and transmission lines. The inductive
effect of the ACSRs steel core is eliminated,
hence increasing the operating efficiency of
the line.

Option:
Non-Specular surface finish (/NS)

representative or e-mail infoca@generalcable.com.

of economy, dependability and favorable strength/
weight ratio. ACSR conductors combine the light
weight and good conductivity of aluminum with the
high tensile strength and ruggedness of steel. In
line design, this can provide higher tensions, less
sag, and longer span lengths than obtainable with
most other types of overhead conductors. The steel
strands are added as mechanical reinforcements.
The cross-sections above illustrate some common
strandings.

ACSR is a composite concentric-lay-stranded


conductor. The conductors are manufactured in
accordance with the requirements of the latest
applicable issue of CAN/CSA C61089.
The steel strand or strands form the central core
of the conductor, around which is stranded one
or more layers of aluminum 1350-H19 wires.
The steel core may consist of a single strand or
a concentric stranded cable of 7, 19, 37, or more
wires. Numerous combinations of aluminum and

(4) Code words shown denote ACSR with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (S1A). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(5) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C for aluminum and ignores the effects of the steel core. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by
3.281.
(6) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 32C ambient temperature, 1.98 ft/sec (0.6 m/s) crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of
emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 42 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting
in 95.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(7) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by
0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(4) Code words shown denote ACSR with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (S1A). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(5) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C for aluminum and ignores the effects of the steel core. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by
3.281.
(6) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 32C ambient temperature, 1.98 ft/sec (0.6 m/s) crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of
emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 42 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting
in 95.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(7) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by
0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(4) Code words shown denote ACSR with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (S1A). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(5) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C for aluminum and ignores the effects of the steel core. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by
3.281.
(6) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 32C ambient temperature, 1.98 ft/sec (0.6 m/s) crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of
emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 42 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting
in 95.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(7) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by
0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(4) Code words shown denote ACSR with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (S1A). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(5) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C for aluminum and ignores the effects of the steel core. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by
3.281.
(6) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 32C ambient temperature, 1.98 ft/sec (0.6 m/s) crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of
emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 42 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting
in 95.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(7) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by
0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSR with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (S1A). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(2) Due to rounding, total values may be slightly greater or slightly less than the sum of the component values.
(3) Weights shown are for conductor only and do not include the reel. Normal length and shipping tolerances apply.
Dimensions and weights not designated minimum or maximum are nominal values and subject to manufacturing tolerances. In this context, weight means mass.

(4) Code words shown denote ACSR with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (S1A). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(5) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C for aluminum and ignores the effects of the steel core. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by
3.281.
(6) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 32C ambient temperature, 1.98 ft/sec (0.6 m/s) crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of
emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 42 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting
in 95.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(7) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by
0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(4) Code words shown denote ACSR with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (S1A). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(5) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C for aluminum and ignores the effects of the steel core. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by
3.281.
(6) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 32C ambient temperature, 1.98 ft/sec (0.6 m/s) crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of
emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 42 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting
in 95.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(7) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by
0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

TransPowr Compact (Smooth Body) ACSR Bare Overhead


Conductor to CSA C49.2 Aluminum Conductor Steel-Reinforced Compact Stranded

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
Smooth Body ACSR is a composite compactlay-stranded conductor. The conductors
are manufactured in accordance with the
requirements of the latest applicable issues of
CSA C49.2.
The steel strands form the central core of the
conductor, around which is stranded a layer of
aluminum 1350-H19 wires. The sizes listed on
the following pages are common examples used
in overhead lines. Metric (mm2) sizes are also
available.
The Canadian Smooth Body ACSR conductors are
supplied in various tensile strength configurations,
designated as Type 100, Type 150, and Type
200. For each conductor gauge size, the regular
product is known as Type 100. Type 150
designates a conductor design with the same AWG
size, but with 150% the rated strength of the Type
100. Type 200 follows accordingly, with twice the
rated strength of the Type 100.

Features and Benefits:


ACSR conductors are recognized for their record
of economy, dependability and favorable strength/
weight ratio. ACSR conductors combine the light
weight and good conductivity of aluminum with the
high tensile strength and ruggedness of steel. In
line design, this can provide higher tensions, less
sag, and longer span lengths than obtainable with
most other types of overhead conductors. The steel
strands are added as mechanical reinforcements.
The cross-sections above illustrate some common
strandings.
The steel core wires are protected from corrosion
by galvanizing. The standard Class A zinc coating
is usually adequate for ordinary environments.
For greater protection, Class B and C galvanized
coatings may be specified.
The product is available with conductor corrosionresistant inhibitor treatment applied to the central
steel component.

Options:
High-Conductivity aluminum (/HC) (62.2% IACS)
CSA high-strength Class A galvanized steel core
(S2A)
CSA extra-high-strength Class A galvanized steel
core (S3A)
ASTM regular-strength Class A zinc-5%
aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel core
(/MA2 to ASTM B802)
ASTM high-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum
mischmetal alloy-coated steel core
(/MA3 to ASTM B803)
Aluminum-clad steel core (20SA)
Regular-strength Class C galvanized steel core
(S1C)
Non-Specular surface finish (/NS)
CSA C68.8 for distribution utilities
For more information, contact your General Cable sales
representative or e-mail infoca@generalcable.com.

Applications:
Compact Aluminum Conductors, Steel-Reinforced
(ACSR) are used for overhead distribution and
transmission lines.
The Type 100 compact ASCR conductor style is
also used as the support conductor in the CSA
Neutral Supported Service Entrance Cable as
referenced in the CSA C22.2 No. 129 specification.

38/19

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
TransPowr ACSR/TW is a trapezoidal aluminum
conductor steel-reinforced concentric-lay-stranded
conductor. The aluminum strands are trapezoidal in
shape.
The wedge-shaped aluminum strands enable a more
compact alignment of the aluminum wires. Conductor
designs that maintain the same circular mil crosssectional area of aluminum as a conventional round
conductor result in a TW conductor that is 10 to
15 percent smaller in overall diameter. Conductor
designs that maintain the same overall diameter
as a conventional round conductor result in a TW
conductor that has 20 to 25 percent more aluminum
cross-sectional area packed in.
The ACSR/TW conductors are manufactured in
accordance with the requirements of the latest issue
of ASTM B779.
The steel strands form the central core of the
conductor, around which is stranded two, three or
four layers of aluminum 1350-H19 wires. The steel
core may consist of a concentric stranded cable
of 7, 19 or more wires. Numerous combinations of
aluminum and steel strands and layers are possible.
The sizes and constructions listed on the following
pages are common examples used in overhead lines.
For ACSR/TW conductors, the standard Class A
galvanized coating is usually adequate for ordinary
environments.

Features and Benefits:


TransPowr ACSR/TW has a continuous operating
temperature rating of 75C. ACSR and ACSR/TW
conductors have an industry-accepted shortduration maximum operating temperature rating
of 100C. Operation of the conductor at elevated
temperatures may increase the conductor sag
properties and lower the rated tensile strength of the
conductor.
TransPowr ACSR/TW conductors are recognized for
their record of economy, dependability and favorable
strength-to-weight ratio. ACSR/TW conductors
constructed of equivalent aluminum circular mil
cross-sectional area provide a conductor that is
smaller in overall diameter than the equivalent
conventional round wire ACSR conductor. The
reduced conductor diameter is advantageous in
reducing the effects of ice and wind loading on
the conductor. ACSR/TW conductors constructed
to equivalent overall diameter enable a greater
circular mil cross-sectional area of aluminum within
the conductor, allowing a significant increase in
conductor current-carrying capacity.

Applications:
Trapezoidal Aluminum Conductors Steel-Reinforced
(ACSR/TW) are used for overhead transmission lines.

Electrical Parameters:
The electrical parameters for the trapezoidal ACSR
equivalent circular mil area and equivalent overall
diameter conductors may be found in the last table
of this section.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSR/TW with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (/GA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of
core magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity,
30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will
differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric
Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by 0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert
capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSR/TW with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (/GA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of
core magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity,
30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will
differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric
Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by 0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert
capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSR/TW with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (/GA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of
core magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on a conductor temperature of 75C at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity,
30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will
differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric
Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by 0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert
capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
ACSS is a composite concentric-lay-stranded cable.
ACSS conductors are manufactured in accordance
with the latest issue of ASTM B856.
The steel strands form the central core of the cable,
around which is stranded one or more layers of
aluminum 1350-O wires. The O temper of the
aluminum, a fully annealed or soft temper, causes
most or all of the mechanical load on ACSS to be
carried by the steel. Standard ACSS designs are
manufactured with regular-strength Class A zinc5% aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel core
(/MA2). The steel core may consist of 7, 19, 37 or
more wires.

Features and Benefits:


ACSS conductors are similar to conventional
ACSR with some very important additional
advantages. ACSS can operate continuously at
high temperatures up to 250C without damage,
allowing for a significant increase in conductor
current-carrying capacity.
ACSS sags less under emergency electrical
loadings than ACSR, it is self-damping, and its final
sags are not affected by long-term creep of the
aluminum.

3/2013

Applications:
Aluminum Conductor Steel-Supported (ACSS)
is used for overhead transmission lines. It is
especially useful in reconductoring applications
requiring increased current with existing tensions
and clearances; new line applications where
structures can be economized due to reduced sag;
new line applications requiring high emergency
loadings; and lines where aeolian vibration is a
problem.

At the present time, CAN/CSA C61089 does not


recognize the ACSS conductor designs. The information
provided on the following pages is from our US catalog.
For other conductor sizes, designs and/or specific
installation requirements not shown in the tables,
contact your General Cable sales representative or
e-mail infoca@generalcable.com.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSS with regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative
design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of core
magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on the given conductor temperature at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor),
0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear
atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based
on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSS with regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative
design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of core
magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on the given conductor temperature at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor),
0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear
atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based
on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSS with regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative
design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of core
magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on the given conductor temperature at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor),
0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear
atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based
on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius.

(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of core
magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on the given conductor temperature at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor),
0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear
atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based
on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius.

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
TransPowr ACSS/TW is a trapezoidal aluminum
conductor steel-supported concentric-lay-stranded
conductor. The aluminum strands are trapezoidal
in shape.
The wedge-shaped aluminum strands enable
a more compact alignment of the aluminum
wires. Conductor designs that maintain the same
circular mil cross-sectional area of aluminum
as a conventional round conductor result in a
TW conductor that is 10 to 15 percent smaller in
overall diameter. Conductor designs that maintain
the same overall diameter as a conventional round
conductor result in a TW conductor that has 20 to
25 percent more aluminum cross-sectional area
packed in.
The ACSS/TW conductors are manufactured in
accordance with the requirements of the latest
issue of ASTM B857.
The steel strands form the central core of the
conductor, around which is stranded two, three or
four layers of aluminum 1350 O temper (annealed)
wires. The steel core may consist of a concentric
stranded cable of 7, 19 or more wires. Numerous
combinations of aluminum and steel strands and
layers are possible. The sizes and constructions
listed on the following pages are common
examples used in overhead lines.
Standard ACSS/TW designs are manufactured
with regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum
mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA2).

Features and Benefits:


TransPowr ACSS/TW conductors are similar to
conventional ACSR/TW conductors but have some
very important additional advantages. ACSS/TW
conductors can operate continuously at high
temperatures (up to 250C) without damage.
ACSS sags less than ACSR/TW under emergency
electrical loadings, it has self-damping properties,
and its final sags are not affected by long-term
creep of the aluminum.
ACSS/TW conductors constructed of equivalent
aluminum circular mil cross-sectional area provide
a conductor that is smaller in overall diameter
than the equivalent conventional round wire ACSS
conductor. The reduced conductor diameter is
advantageous in reducing the effects of ice and
wind loading on the conductor.
ACSS/TW conductors constructed to equivalent
overall diameter enable a greater circular mil
cross-sectional area of aluminum within the
conductor, allowing a significant increase in
conductor current-carrying capacity.

Applications:
Trapezoidal Aluminum Conductors Steel-Supported
(ACSS/TW) are used for overhead transmission
lines. They are especially useful in reconductoring
applications requiring increased current with
existing tensions and clearances; new line
applications where structures can be economized
due to reduced sag; new line applications requiring
high emergency loadings; and lines where aeolian
vibration is a problem.

Electrical Parameters:
The electrical parameters for the trapezoidal ACSS
equivalent circular mil area and equivalent overall
diameter conductors may be found in the last table
of this section.

Options:
High-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum
mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA3 to
ASTM B803)
Extra-high-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum
mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA4 to
ASTM B958)

(1) Code words shown denote ACSS/TW with regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of core
magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on the given conductor temperature at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern
latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local
conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric
Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by 0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert
capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSS/TW with regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of core
magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on the given conductor temperature at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern
latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and
sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric
Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by 0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert
capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSS/TW with regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for
alternative design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.2% (minimum lot average) IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for single-layer and three-layer designs approximates the effects of core
magnetization. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Based on the given conductor temperature at 60 Hz and the following conditions: 25C ambient temperature, 2 ft/sec crosswind (90 to conductor), 0.5 coefficient of emissivity, 0.5 coefficient of absorbtivity, 30 northern
latitude, sea level elevation, 90 azimuth of line (East-West), clear atmosphere, and a date and time of noon on July 1 (resulting in 96.0 W/ft of solar and sky radiated heat). Actual ampacity will differ based on local
conditions. For specific ampacities, please contact your General Cable sales representative.
(6) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius (30.48 cm). To convert the Geometric
Mean Radius (GMR) to cm, divide the value by 0.03821. To convert inductive reactance to ohm/km, multiply the value by 3.281. To convert
capacitive reactance to ohm/km, divide the value by 3.281.

TransPowr ACSR/SD Bare Overhead Conductor

Self-Damping Aluminum Conductor Steel-Reinforced Concentric-Lay-Stranded

2-Layer SDC

3-Layer SDC

Product Construction:
Complete Conductor:
ACSR/SD conductors are manufactured with two
layers of 1350 H19 trapezoidal-shaped aluminum
wires concentrically stranded around a steel core
of round coated steel wires. On certain larger
conductor constructions, the trapezoidal-shaped
wires are surrounded by a layer of round 1350
H19 aluminum wires. The steel core and the two
layers of trapezoidal-shaped aluminum wires are
separated by a gap to provide the self-damping
characteristics. Steel core wires are protected
from corrosion by aluminum-clad, galvanized,
or zinc-5% aluminum mischmetal alloy coating.
Standard, high, extra- and ultra-high-strength steel
is also available. The ACSR/SD conductors are
manufactured in accordance with the requirements
of the latest issue of ASTM B701.

3/2013

Features and Benefits:


The steel core and the two layers of trapezoidalshaped aluminum wires in ACSR/SD are separated
by a gap designed to provide self-damping
characteristics to control Aeolian vibration
eliminating the need for vibration dampers.
Additional advantages in using ASCR/SD include:
shorter, more economical towers, increased
reliability, lower overall line cost, reduced sag,
reduced ice and wind loads as well as permitting
longer spans.

Applications:
ACSR/SD conductors are used for overhead
transmission lines to control Aeolian vibration.

Options:
High-conductivity aluminum (/HC) (62.2% IACS)
Regular-strength Class C galvanized steel core
(/GC2)
High-strength Class A galvanized steel core
(/GA3 to ASTM B606)
Extra-high-strength Class A galvanized steel core
(/GA4 to ASTM B957)

Ultra-high-strength Class A galvanized steel core


(/GA5 to ASTM B957)
Regular-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum
mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA2 to
ASTM B802)
High-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum
mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA3 to
ASTM B803)
Extra-high-strength Class A zinc-5% aluminum
mischmetal alloy-coated steel core (/MA4 to

(1) Code words shown denote ACSR/SD with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (/GA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for three-layer designs must be increased by 1.1%, 2.7%, 3.7%, and 4.3% for current
densities of 200, 600, 1000, and 1400 amperes per 1000 kcmil of aluminum to allow for the magnetic losses in the steel core. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius.

(1) Code words shown denote ACSR/SD with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (/GA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative design options.
(2) Due to rounding, total values may not exactly equal the sum of the component values.
(3) Weights shown are for conductor only and do not include the reel. Normal length and shipping tolerances apply.
Dimensions and weights not designated minimum or maximum are nominal values and subject to manufacturing tolerances. In this context, weight means mass.

CODE WORD (1)

(1) Code words shown denote ACSR/SD with regular-strength Class A galvanized steel core (/GA2). See the Options section to find the appropriate code word modifier designation for alternative design options.
(4) Based on a conductivity of 61.0% IACS at 20C for aluminum and 8% IACS at 20C for the steel core. AC resistance for three-layer designs must be increased by 1.1%, 2.7%, 3.7%, and 4.3% for current
densities of 200, 600, 1000, and 1400 amperes per 1000 kcmil of aluminum to allow for the magnetic losses in the steel core. To convert to ohms/mile, multiply by 5.28. To convert to ohms/km, multiply by 3.281.
(5) Values for inductive reactance and capacitive reactance are expressed in terms of a 1 ft radius.

TransPowr Weatherproof Overhead Line Wire

Single Conductor LLDPE or XLPE Covered Line Wire to CSA C68.9

Product Construction:
Complete Cable:
Weatherproof line wire consists of single
conductor covered with either Linear Low-Density
Polyethylene (LLDPE) or Cross-linked Polyethylene
(XLPE). Conductors may be compact or concentric
strand of ACSR, A1 or A2 or solid, compact or
concentric strand copper. Weatherproof line wire
meets the requirements of CSA C68.9 and the
ANSI/ICEA S-70-547 specification, as applicable.
Conductors:
Different conductor types are available. Solid or
stranded MHD copper, compact or concentric HD
aluminum, aluminum alloy, or ACSR are all options
that are available.
The conductors meet the requirements of CSA
C49.2, CAN/CSA C61089, ASTM B3, B8, B231,
B232, B400, or B496 as applicable. For aluminum
and ACSR conductors, the direction of lay of the
outer layer of the strand is right-hand. For copper
conductors, the direction of lay of the outer layer of
the strand is left-hand.
For products manufactured with aluminum
conductors, the product is available with conductor
corrosion-resistant inhibitor treatment.

Complete Cable (contd.):


Covering:
Black, Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) or
black extruded Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE)
coverings are available.
There is no voltage rating.

Features and Benefits:


The covering provides mechanical protection to
the conductor and is resistant to weathering and
chemicals. If the conductors accidentally come
into contact due to high winds, falling tree limbs,
or other disturbances, the covering resists short
circuits and the tendency for conductors to weld
together.

Applications:
Weatherproof line wire is used for overhead
transmission and distribution lines. Covered
line wire is not an electrically insulated cable.
Therefore, it should be installed on insulators, and
users should treat line wire as bare conductor for
personal safety.

Options:
Medium-Density Polyethylene (MDPE)
High-Density Cross-linked Polyethylene
(HDXLPE)
Annealed (soft drawn) copper for transformer
drop and covered ground wire
Conductor corrosion-resistant inhibitor treatment
Sequential print marking
For other conductor sizes, designs and/or specific
installation requirements not shown in the tables,
contact your General Cable sales representative or
e-mail infoca@generalcable.com.

Handling Recommendations and Packaging Information

Recommended Reel Handling Procedures

When off-loading reels from a truck, lower reels carefully using a


hydraulic gate, hoist or forklift truck. Never drop reels. If reels must
be rolled, roll in opposite direction of the cable wraps to keep cable
from loosening on the reel.

Dont

When using a hoist, install a mandrel through the reel arbor


holes and attach a sling. Use a spreader bar approximately
6 inches longer than the overall reel width placed between
the sling ends just above the reel flanges. This will prevent bending
the reel flanges and mashing the cable.

Do

Dont

Do

Dont

Dont

Dont

If a forklift is used, approach the reel from the flange side. Position the forks such that the reel is lifted
by both reel flanges. Do not allow the lift forks to contact the cable. Care must be taken by the forklift
operator not to make sudden turns or stops.
Cable shipped on pallets should be stored indoors if possible. Cable shipped on wooden or metal reels
may be stored outdoors. When selecting a storage site, consideration should be given to:

Traffic patterns during off-loading

Grade and condition of the soil or pavement

Protection from vehicle damage during the time in storage

Environmental conditions such as exposure to heat, corrosive chemicals, etc.

Dont

Cable reels should be stored on hard surfaces resting on the


flanges edge (flanges vertical). Align reels flange to flange
and, if possible, arrange so that first in is first out. Multiple
reels stacked on top of each other (Pancake storage) or
storing reels flat (flanges horizontal) is not recommended for bare
conductor or medium-voltage cable. The weight of the stack
can total thousands of pounds, creating an enormous load
on the bottom reel. Also, damage to the reel and/or cable will
likely occur when the reel is flipped for transit. A concentration
of stress on the reel flange may cause it to break and
subsequently damage the cable.

133

Electric Utility

Handling Recommendations and Packaging Information


Recommended Reel Handling Procedures

If cable reels must be pancaked or stored in vertical racks, do not lift the reel by the top flange. Spacers
placed under the bottom flange and between reels (two 2x4s placed wide side up) create a space to insert
the forks and lift the reel without damaging the cable. If nails are used to secure the spacers, make sure
the nails do not go through the flange and into the cable.

Dont

For extended storage of bare or


insulated cables (spare cable,
etc.), reels should be stored
cradled between railroad ties,
power poles or crossarms. Size
and spacing of the supports should
raise the flange above the ground.

End View of Spacers

Do

This helps keep the flanges from


decaying and prevents the reels from
rolling. At temporary storage sites
where soil may be soft, preservativetreated plywood sheets may be used
to keep reel flanges from sinking into
the ground.

When possible, the reel wrap or lagging supplied on the reels should be replaced to help protect the cable
from inadvertent damage. Under extreme environmental conditions, other measures may be necessary.
To prevent entrance of water, cable ends should be sealed with plastic end caps. Electrical tape does not
offer a sufficient seal. When lengths are cut, cable ends should be immediately resealed and secured.
Low temperatures are a cause for concern when installing cable. Cable should not be installed when
the ambient temperatures are less than the cold bend temperature rating of the cable product plus 15C
(i.e., the minimum installation temperature = cold bend temperature rating + 15C). When applicable, the
cold bend temperature rating is indicated on the individual product page in this catalog. Polyethylene
insulated jacketed low-voltage cables and polyethylene jacketed medium-voltage power cables are
suitable for storage and operation at -40C and should not be handled or installed when the temperature
of the cable or the ambient temperature is below -25C. For other cable designs, cold weather installation
may be limited to higher ambient temperatures. For more information about a specific construction,
please contact your General Cable sales representative.
If installations are to be carried out where the cable and/or the ambient temperature is below the limit
specified above, the cable should first be warmed for a minimum of 48 hours at room temperature
(15C) or higher prior to handling. Cable should be pulled more slowly and trained in place the same
day it is removed from storage. Do not impact, drop, kink or bend cable sharply at low temperatures.

Handling Recommendations and Packaging Information


Standard Package and Shipping Information
Shipping Information
Bare Overhead / Individual Package (Reel or Coil)
Unless otherwise agreed upon at time of quotation
Standard or special lengths are subject to a manufacturing length tolerance per
shipping reel of plus or minus 5% from the specified shipping reel length.
An amount not exceeding 10% of the total quantity of any order may be shipped in
random lengths, with no one length shorter than 50% of the specified shipping reel length.
When required, bare conductor may be furnished in matched sets, with the variation
in the measured length within each group being no greater than 150 feet for sets of 6
or less, and 200 feet for sets of 9 and 12. In the case where a random length has been
produced, the corresponding matched set group will be cut to within a 10 ft. tolerance.
For matched set reel identification, on both flanges of the reel, a weatherproof tag is
attached that has a Number/Letter identifier marked on it. The number is the numerical
sequence from 1, 2, 3, 4, etc for the different sets of matched conductor reels, and the
letters A, B, C, etc. identify the matched reels in each set.
For product shipped in coils, 90% of an order quantity shall be furnished in exact lengths
as specified in General Cable catalog pages. Exact lengths are specified as having a minus
0% tolerance. Up to 10% of an total order quantity may be supplied in random lengths
with no one length shorter than 50% of the specified coil length.
For bare overhead conductor shipped on wood or steel reels, a reel wrap covering is
applied over the conductor. The default reel wrap material consists of a NEMA WC26
Level II (Weather Protector). Individual manufacturing plant preferences may utilize heavier
grade level of reel wrap material.

Shipping Information
Covered and Insulated Cable (Reel or Coil)
Unless otherwise agreed upon at time of quotation
Standard or special lengths are subject to a manufacturing length tolerance per shipping
reel of plus or minus 10% from the specified shipping reel length.
An amount not exceeding 10% of the total quantity of any order may be shipped in
random lengths, with no one length shorter than 80% nor greater than 120% of the
specified shipping reel length.
For product shipped in coils, 90% of an order quantity shall be furnished in exact lengths
as specified in General Cable catalog pages. Exact lengths are specified as having a minus
0% tolerance. Up to 10% of a total order quantity may be supplied in random lengths, with
no one length shorter than 90% of the specified coil length.
For multiplex service drop cable shipped in coils on pallets, the quantity of coils must be in
full pallet load quantities.
With the exception of cable sold from stock, in support of the Green Initiative and reducing
waste, reels are shipped without a reel wrap covering.
