INTRODUCTION

Leader Cable Industry Berhad, incorporated in 1976 has grown steadily to become the country’s single largest cable manufacturer today since its 1990 merger with Universal Cable (M) Berhad under the flagship of its parent, Leader Universal Holdings Berhad (LEADER). Through its far sighted planning and unceasing product and service innovation, LCIB has successfully cultivated a manufacturing profile of an extensive range of cable and wire products. From household cables, XLPE cables, telecommunication cables for both domestic and export markets, LCIB has achieved a distinguished reputation as a leading supplier of power and telecommunication cables to major corporations both local and foreign. This catalogue serves as a guide to LCIB’s manufacturing processes and standards in the manufacturing of aluminium conductors, cables and OPGW.

ALUMINIUM & ALLUMINIUM ALLOY CONDUCTORS Aluminium & aluminium alloy conductors are the preferred and dominant conductors in several areas of power transmission and distribution. The major areas dominated by aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors are non-insulated overhead power transmission, insulated overhead power transmission and non overhead power distribution.

3


CONDUCTORS

This dominance is due to the excellent overall properties of aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors. Aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors offer good conductivity, light weight, excellent resistance to corrosion, good bending properties, greater tensile strength than copper and excellent compatibility with most common insulation used by the wire and cable industry. These conductors now command a significant share of the insulated, interior wire market particularly in the larger dimensions (i.e heavy current installations) where weight and ease of handling are important factors.

ALUMINIUM

This trend is due to their excellent overall properties. Principally these are listed as : 1. Conductivity In excess of twice that of copper by unit weight. 2. Strength A range of strengths from dead soft to that of mild steel,depending on the required temperature of aluminium alloy. 3. Workability Permitting a wide range of processing from wire drawing to stranding. This offers excellent bend quality.

4. Light Weight Ease of handling, low installation costs, longer spans and more distance between pullins. 5. Corrosion Resistance Most industrial, marine and chemical atmospheres cause corrosion. In addition, the corrosion resistance of all alloys can be further improved by anodizing. 6. Compatibility With Insulation Does not adhere to or combine with usual insulating materials. No tin-coating required: clean stripping.

4


ALUMINIUM CONDUCTORS Aluminium and aluminium alloy electrical conductors are made by various processes from wire-drawing (i.e rod breakdown to fine wire) to wire stranding from a large diameter of redraw aluminium and aluminium alloy rods.

With strong and consistent emphasis on quality, Leader Cable continues to strive for

improvement in the production of our aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors to better meet customer requirements and expectations.

BARE ALL ALUMINIUM CONDUCTOR (AAC) The stranded Bare All Aluminium Conductor (AAC) are made up of concentric-lay-stranded aluminium wires only. The conductor may be made up of 7, 19, 37, 61 or more wires in 1, 2, 3, 4 or mre layers around a central wire. Each successive layer shall have six more wires than the layer immediately beneath. For a given cross-sectional area, the conductor becomes more flexible as the number of wires is increased (with a corresponding decrease in size of each wire). When All Aluminium Conductors are to be used in overheaded lines, full hard drawn temper wires are used. The illustration below show some typical stranding patterns.

BARE ALL ALUMINIUM ALLOY CONDUCTOR (BARE AAAC) Aluminium alloy (AAAC) contains a small percentage (about 0.6%) of silicon and magnesium elements. It provides several benefits for overhead lines.

10

(i) Strength

- About twice that of aluminium 1350 (EC)

(ii) Weight

- 20% (approx.) lighter than ACSR conductor of equal diameter.

(iii) Corrosion resistance

- It has a high resistance to atmospheric corrosion which is suitable for coastal and industrial areas.

(iv) Surface hardness

- AAAC’s surface is significantly harder than aluminium 1350. It is lesss liable to damage during installation which is an important advantage of EHV transmission lines where corona and radio interference is a major consideration.

(v) Termination

- Much simpler jointing accessories required compared to ACSR.

(vi) AC Resistance

- AAAC is a non-magnetic material. It doed not exhibit the magnetic core losses found in ACSR conductor.

BARE ALUMINIUM CONDUCTOR STEEL REINFORCED (ACSR) ACSR is a composite, concentrically stranded conductor in which the light weight and good conductivity of aluminium are combined with the high tensile strength of steel. It is composed of one or more layers of EC grade hard-drawn aluminium wires helically stranded around an inner core of high strength zinc-coated steel wires. The inner steel core may be a single zinccoated steel wire, or concentrically stranded of one or more layer of zinc-coated steel wires. ACSR has long been widely used as overhead high tension transmission lines and has an established reputation for economy and dependability. The illustration below shows typical standard sizes and stranding patterns.

Calculated area


PVC - COVERED ALUMINIUM CONDUCTORS The PVC - covered conductors have been developed primarily to give protection to telecommunication lines which are

crossed by power lines and to give protection to the public from low voltage lines in case of accidental contact for short periods.

The PVC - covered overhead power lines have also been found

useful in corrosive atmospheres and for preventing faults due to birds and trees. For such purposes, thickness of covering other

than those specified in this catalogue may be used. The conductors are sometimes referred to as “Weather - Resistant Line Wire” and may consist of a single solid

wire, or all aluminium stranded conductors (AAC) over which a covering has been applied.

The insulation thickness of Type 8 is intended for use where the

operating voltage does not exceed 650 V r.m.s. between any two conductors or 250 V r.m.s. between any conductor and earth.
