These conductors are formed by several aluminum alloy wires or either by several of these, with other wires of galvanized steel, stranded in concentric layers.
As regards aluminum, the wires of this alloy have a double tensile strength. Its electrical conductivity is 15% lower(53% instead of 61%)and the weight is the same.
By making use of these characteristics, in many cases an alloy conductor can replace the Aluminum Conductors Steel reinforced with a similar installation cost.
The Aluminum Alloy Steel Reinforced conductors have a much higher strength and its usage is ideal on long spans or under very severe mechanical conditions.
Low, medium, high and very high voltages lines.
