The ACCC InfoCore™ System reduces real-world conductor installation risk experienced by utilities, contractors and lineman across the globe. These dedicated professionals know that even with the best tools, equipment and field conditions, accidents can happen. By using a proprietary infrared light system, special fibers in the core, and a robust data-capture and recording methodology, the ACCC InfoCore™ System can confirm the integrity of the conductor in minutes. While not mandatory for every installation, this capability serves to improve reliability and confidence. The system is capable of confirming very long continuous spans and is currently being utilized globally.
How it Works
The process begins by accessing the conductor at each end, prepping the core ends using tools provided in the ACCC InfoCore™ Confirmation Kit.
- Transmitter is attached to one end of the ACCC® Conductor.
- Receiver is attached to the other end.
- Controller receives, reviews and records the results.
- Core prep generally takes less than five minutes and the receiver confirms a successful installation in seconds.
CTC Global’s ACCC InfoCore™ System makes confirming successful conductor installation safe, simple and fast. Alternate methods include CT Scan, X-ray inspection, and magnetic pulse technology but these devices are very slow and expensive.
The ACCC InfoCore™ System is commercially available and has been deployed to a number of sites worldwide. It is noteworthy that there is no performance difference between ACCC® Conductor
and ACCC InfoCore™ Conductor. ACCC InfoCore™ Field Verification Kits are easy to use, and available through CTC Global’s Master Installers network.
