636 Orchid All Aluminum Conductor AAC
636 ORCHID ALL ALUMINUM CONDUCTOR AAC
Allowable Ampacity for 636 ORCHID ALL ALUMINUM CONDUCTOR AAC: 765 Amps
AAC, or All Aluminum Conductor, is an electrical cable mainly used for distribution services as well as overhead transmission in outdoor premises due to the high-quality water-resistant aluminum conductor. The AAC cable can be of two classes: class AA cables are with bare conductors to be used in overhead lines, and class A is for an electrical wire with both bare conductors for increased flexibility and conductors with a weather-resistant cover.
