AAC – All Aluminium Conductors

All-aluminuim conductors are the most favoured type for use in the construction of relatively short span distribution schemes and are in common use on lines for voltage up to 60 KV.
Another frequent application for all-aluminium conductor is in flexible busbar connections.
Although aluminium-to-copper connections can be made, it is better to use aluminium conductors for service connections, as various forms of covered cable being available for this purpose.
The data sheets show the most common sizes of conductors but other sizes, to any recognized standards or customer specification can also be supplied.
AAC insulated with XLPE or PVC can be supplied as per the customers’ requirement.
AAC are used primarily for overhead transmission and primary and secondary distribution, where ampacitymust be maintained and a lighter conductor (compared to ACSR) is desired, when conductor strength is not a critical factor.
AAC can also are used primarily as bus, apparatus connectors and jumpers, where additional flexibility is required.
