    There is a lot of debate still going on as to whether copper is better for electrical purposes or aluminum. If price was not a critical factor, most would suggest going in for silver as it is said to be the best conductor of electricity but has a low strength. However, when it comes to electrical wiring, price is a factor, as is efficiency.

    Applications:

    To supply power from the utility's lines to the consumer's weatherhead. For service at 600 volts or less (phase to phase) at a conductor temperature of 75°C maximum for polyethylene Insulation or 90°C maximum for crosslinked insulation.

    Construction:

    Concentric strand or compressed 1350-H19 conductor, polyethylene or crosslinked polyethylene insulation, concentric strand AAC, ACSR or 6201 alloy neutral messenger.

    Standards:

    • B-230 Aluminum Wire 1350-H19 for Electrical Purposes
    • B-231 Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded
    • B-232 Aluminum Conductors, Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Coated Steel Reinforced (ACSR)
    • B-399 Concentric-Lay-Stranded 6201-T81 Aluminum Alloy Conductors
    • B-498 Zinc-Coated Steel Core Wire for Aluminum Conductors, Steel Reinforced (ACSR).
    • Triplex Service Drop cable meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of ANSI/ICEA body S-76-474.
