An outer layer of Aluminum conductor concentrically stranded over the central core of solid Aluminum alloy or Stranded Aluminum alloy wire to form ACAR conductor.
ACAR conductors are used as bare overhead conductor for power transmission and distribution lines,where higher capacity and strength for equal weight are prime line considerations.ACAR is the solution over ACSR due to its better strength-to-weight ratio.
IEC, BS, ASTM, CAN-CSA, DIN, IS, AS and relevant national and international standards.

ACAR manufactured by GE meets or exceeds the requirements of all international standards like ASTM, AS, BS, CSA, DIN, IEC, NFC, SS -etc
Aluminium Conductor Alloy Reinforced (ACAR) is formed by concentrically stranded wires of Aluminium 1350 on high strength Aluminium -Magnesium -Silicon(AlMgSi) alloy core. The number of wires of Aluminum1350 & AlMgSi alloy depends on the cable design. Though the general design comprises a stranded core of AlMgSi alloy strand, in certain cable constructions , the wires of AlMgSi alloy strands can be distributed in layers throughout the Aluminium 1350 strands.
What’s The Advantages of ACAR Conductor?
ACAR has got a better mechanical and electrical properties as compared to an equivalent ACSR, AAC or AAAC. A very good balance between the mechanical and electrical properties therefore makes ACAR the best choice where the ampacity, strength and light weight are the main consideration of the line design. These conductors are extensively used in overhead transmission and distribution lines.
What’s The Features of ACAR Conductor?
improved strength to weight ratio
better mechanical properties
improved electrical characteristics
excellent resistance to corrosion
