    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B801 - 16

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



    WK60916

    1. Rationale

    1) To align with the changes made in ASTM B231 (For 1350 Aluminum concentric, compressed and unilay aluminum conductors) and ASTM B400 (For 1350 Aluminum - compact aluminum conductors) add into Table 1 and Table 2 of ASTM B801 (for Series 8000 Aluminum Alloy conductors) - 1100 kcmil, 1250 kcmil and 1500 kcmil conductor sizes. 2) To align with the changes made in Table 3 of ASTM B231 add an additional footnote to Table 1 of ASTM B801 that will denote that For 91-Wire Class B Constructions of 1100, 1250 and 1500 kcmil, as agreed upon between the manufacturer and the customer, these sizes may be produced with a 61 wire constructions of the appropriate wire size. 3) To align with the changes made in Table 1 of ASTM B400 add an additional footnote to Table 1 of ASTM B801 that will denote that For 91-Wire Compact Constructions of 1100, 1250 and 1500 kcmil, as agreed upon between the manufacturer and the customer, these sizes may be produced with a 61 to 58 wire constructions of the appropriate wire size.
