Aluminum Conductors Alloy Reinforced (ACAR)

ACAR - is formed by concentrically stranded Wires of Aluminum 1350 on high strength Aluminum-Magnesium-Silicon (AlMgSi) Alloy core.

Benefits: ACAR delivers high current-carrying capacity and strength, combined with lower conductor weight. It is an excellent conductor choice where current carrying capacity, higher strength, and a lower conductor weight are critical to the line design.

Applications - ACAR conductors are used for overhead distribution and transmission lines requiring all aluminum conductors, but requiring higher strength and longer spans than what is capable with AAC conductors.
