    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: B01.07 | Committee B01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers concentric-lay-stranded conductors made from round aluminumzirconium alloy wires and an aluminum matrix composite (AMC) core wire(s) for use as overhead electrical conductors (Explanatory Note 1 and Explanatory Note 2). 1.2 The values stated in inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as the standard. The values in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

    Currently, no such standards exists for ACCR.
