AAAC-6201 (All Aluminum Alloy Conductor - 6201)

Peak Substation Services presents the AAAC-6201 (All Aluminum Alloy Conductor-6201 wire) for your transmission and distribution needs. If your project needs excellent sag-tension properties and superior corrosion resistance, consider the 6201 wire for electrical purposes.

AAAC-6201 Applications

The 6201 wire serves as a bare conductor for primary and overhead secondary distribution lines. The conductor's notable sag properties come from its heavy-duty aluminum alloy that offers a higher strength-to-weight rating.

AAAC-6201 Specifications

The All Aluminum Alloy Conductor is developed in accordance with the following American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard specification:

The All Aluminum Alloy Conductor-6201 wire comes in different variants that differ in conductor size, weight, and breaking strength ratings. Code words include:

Amherst, Butte, Elgin, Anaheim, Azusa, Flint, Akron, Ames, Darien, Cairo, Alton, Alliance, Greeley, Canton

Construction

The homogenous concentrically stranded conductor consists of round aluminum alloy 6201-T81 wire. Conductors can be single or multi-layered depending on their current carrying capacity and strength requirements.

Concentric lay-stranded AAAC wire are made from a high-strength aluminum-magnesium-silicon combination. Furthermore, the All Aluminum Alloy Conductor offers several electrical grade variations, including the 6101 and 6201 wire.

The 6201 wire is designed as an economical solution for overhead projects with higher strength requirements than regular aluminum 1350 but without the steel core. Note that 6201-T81 conductors have the same DC resistance as standard equal-diameter ACSR conductors at 20 ºC. Additionally, 6201-T81 conductors are harder and more resistant to abrasion than 1350-H19 aluminum.

AAAC-6201 Features

Due to the increased strength-to-weight ratio, the 6201-T81 alloy features on transmission and distribution lines that require:

  • Conductors with more strength requirements than AAC
  • Conductors with more comparable strength than ACSR
  • More corrosion resistance than ACSR conductors

Compared to regular ASCR transmitters, AAAC is preferred for high and medium-voltage transmission lines because of its relative ampacity ratings and breaking strength, lighter weight, predominant corrosion resistance, and lower electrical losses. AAAC actually has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than any other bare conductor.

Why Peak Substation Services Is Your Packaging Resource

Reduce project man-hours by choosing Peak Substation Services as your preferred packager. Our job is to get the necessary materials to your substation without inconveniencing utilities and consultants. We provide bill-of-materials with itemized "take-offs" that describe the types, sizes, and quantities of materials needed for the job.

We'll price everything, including bolts, nuts, and grounding equipment, so your employees don't have to. Our experts also analyze drawings and specifications for more accurate budgets. This is in addition to us issuing all the purchase orders you require to fulfill the package—while you only send us one.

Peak Substation Services has been at the forefront of providing structural and electrical packaging solutions since 2006. With more than 100 years of collective employee experience, we stand out as an authority in substation distribution, design, construction conductors, manufacturing, and procurement.

We boast 1000+ complete packages, delivering exceptional service to utilities, industrial clients, and utility contractors across the U.S.

Our service is centered on a combination of the following values:

Our Services

We have a wide range of service offerings at PEAK. These include:

  • Products and Components: Our job is to deliver quality substation parts, whether you want new components, replacements, control cables, electrical switchgear, or electrical accessories. We compare our established connections and pick the most appropriate supplier for your project applications and price range.
  • Substation Packaging: We pre-engineer and bundle all of your project requirements, from structural and electrical components to transmission and utility distribution materials. Our experts are well-versed in various materials, including steel and aluminum in a beam, lattice, tapered tube, and tube. We can also work with different voltage ranges (4160-500k EHV).
  • Utility Poles: Successful projects and superior materials go hand in hand. Wherever you are in the U.S., we supply premium wood utility poles to finish your project or keep your operations running until steel poles are ready.

Electrical Substation Design: We're problem solvers, helping to realize your vision from initial concept to complete substation design. Like every design project, we take time to understand the purpose of the substation before pricing and gathering the components. Every design follows the national electric code and IEEE, RUI, and ACSE standards.
