Eco Series conductors consists of trapezoidal shaped special aluminium alloy containing magnesium, silicon and copper stranded with round core. The trapezoidal shape provides upto 96% compactness
Eco Series conductors
Eco Series conductors are innovative, efficient, low loss & most importantly an economical solution for re-conductoring power lines and constructing new lines. The higher efficiency of Eco Series conductors enables significant saving when substituted in grid systems for normal ACSR or AAAC conductors. Also, for delivery of same power to the customers, Eco Series conductors enable power generators to reduce the amount of power they must generate and hence lower emissions.
● Upto 30% less I2R losses for same sized conductor.
● For same output runs cooler by 5-10°C (41-50°F), hence lower carbon emissions.
● Contributes to lowering emission of greenhouse gases.
● Can be deployed with existing structural designs.
