ACCC® AZR Conductor
Expanding the capabilities of the ACCC® Conductor using aluminum zirconium alloy
ACCC AZR Conductor uses either the standard 310 ksi core or the higher strength 375 ksi core that is then wrapped with one or more layers of a high strength, thermal resistant aluminum-zirconium alloy. While conventional ACCC conductors typically use fully annealed aluminum to maximize conductivity, the ACCC AZR conductor offers nearly the same efficiency, but far greater overall strength. The added strength and increased tensile modulus mitigates conductor sag under heavy wind or ice loads, or very long spans.
