Types of VERI ACSS Cable

ACSS—Aluminum Conductor Steel Supported

ACSS is a concentric stranded composite conductor made of a galvanized steel strand core and one or more layers of annealed or soft 1350-0 aluminum.

The steel core is Class A galvanized steel that can withstand most or all of the mechanical load of the conductor due to the use of annealed or soft-tempered aluminum. High-strength steel core available on request.



Aluminum conductor steel supported (ACSS) cable is used for overhead transmission lines. ACSS is designed to operate continuously at higher temperatures up to 250℃ without loss of strength, which allows for a significant increase in current carrying capacity over ACSR. ACSS is self-damping, sags less than ACSR under emergency electrical loadings, and its final sags are not affected by the long-term creep of aluminum. These advantages make ACSS useful in new line applications where structures can be optimized due to the reduced conductor sag, where high emergency loads may be required; or in lines where Aeolian vibration is a problem. Existing lines can be re-conductored using ACSS to allow for increased current using the existing clearances and tensions.

ACSS/TW—Aluminum Conductor Steel Supported

Steel Support (ACSS/TW) is a concentrically stranded conductor with one or more layers of trapezoidal hard-drawn and annealed 1350-0 aluminum wire on a central core of steel.

Designed for continuous operation at high temperatures, ACSS/TW has less sag under emergency electrical loads than ACSR/TW. It has excellent self-damping properties, and its ultimate sag is unaffected by long-term creep in aluminum.



ACSS/TW can be designed to have the same aluminum cross-sectional area as standard ACSS, resulting in smaller conductor diameters but reducing wind load parameters. Or diameters equal to that of standard ACSS, resulting in significantly more high aluminum area, lower conductor resistance, and higher current rating.
