ASTM B911/B911M - 12(2016) - Standard Specification for ACSR Twisted Pair Conductor (ACSR/TP)

ASTM B911/B911M - 12(2016)

Standard Specification for ACSR Twisted Pair Conductor (ACSR/TP)

Status : Current   Published : October 2016



1.1 This specification covers ACSR Twisted Pair Conductor (ACSR/TP) for use as overhead electric conductors (see Notes 1 and2).

Note 1:  The conductor is fabricated from two component ACSR conductors of the same size twisted helically around each other. This conductor is identified by the code name of the component ACSR conductor followed by /TP or the size and type of the component ACSR conductor followed by /TP.

Note 2:  There are registered trademark symbols that are also used to identify the twisted pair notation. Consult cable manufacturers for additional details.

1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.2.1 For conductor sizes designated by AWG or kcmil, the requirements in SI units have been numerically converted from corresponding values stated or derived in inch-pound units. For conductor sizes designated by SI units only, the requirements are stated or derived in SI units. For density, resistivity, and temperature, the values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

1.3  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
