556.5 MCM Dove ACSR Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced
What is 556.5 Dove ACSR Cable ?
Aluminium Conductors Steel Reinforced (ACSR), also known as Bare aluminium conductors, are one of the most widely used conductors for transmission. 556.5 MCM Dove ACSR Cable consists of one or more layers of aluminium wires stranded over a high strength steel core that can be single or multiple strands depending on the requirement. There can be various stranding combinations of Al and steel wires lending flexibility to obtain suitable current carrying capacity and mechanical strength for the application.

What is the application of 556.5 Dove ACSR Cable ?
556.5 Dove ACSR Cable is suitable for use in all practical spans on wood poles, transmission towers, and other structures. Applications range from long, extra high voltage (EHV) transmission lines to sub-service spans at distribution or utilization voltages on private premises.
ACSR (aluminum conductor steel reinforced) conductor has a long service record because of its economy, dependability, and strength to weight ratio. The combined light weight and high conductivity of aluminum with strength of the steel core enables higher tensions, less sag, and longer spans than any alternative.
