Proven Solutions to Increase Capacity

More amps on the same size conductors, for your toughest transmission challenges.

3M ACCR is an all-aluminum-based conductor designed as a drop-in replacement for ACSR and ACSS. Its properties enable transmission capacity increases, up to twice as much or more, on existing structures, while matching or improving tensions and clearances. The round-wire construction is composed of a multi-strand, aluminum-matrix core surrounded by aluminum-zirconium outer wires that are round in shape.
