Copperweld® CAMO™ represents a tremendous leap forward in the fight against copper theft. DSA Copperweld® copper-clad steel conductors have been an excellent alternative to copper for grounding applications for almost a century. Providing a low-impedance path to ground, ample fault current capacity and high tensile strength, they're a natural for grounding poles and substations.
Copperweld® wire and strand combines the strength of steel with the conductivity and corrosion resistance of copper. These properties make Copperweld® wire and strand ideal for many utility, telecommunication, and general industry applications.
Copperweld® Type M Guy Strand is an economical, corrosion-resistant guying material for use on overhead lines. The thick cladding of copper on each wire protects the high-strength steel core from rusting and subsequent loss of strength. The copper also provides more ampacity within the strand, thus protecting from damage during a fault condition. Costly maintenance resulting from corrosion is eliminated, and the original safety factor of the guy is maintained throughout the life of the line.
Copperweld® Copper Composite (CCC) conductor provides the designer flexibility of strength and conductivity. By manufacturing the conductor with varying proportions of hard drawn copper wire and 30% conductivity Extra High Strength (EHS) Copperweld® wire, these characteristics can be achieved.
High Strength (HS) and Extra High Strength (EHS) Copperweld® wire and strand combines the electrical characteristics of copper with the mechanical properties of high strength and extra high strength steel. This combination, often used as overhead ground wire and messenger wire, can resist mechanical damage during installation, as well as electrical damage during a fault condition.
Copperweld® wire and strand has been utilized and relied upon for years as a strong, non-rusting, efficient grounding conductor. Combining the strength of steel with the conductivity and corrosion resistance of copper, Copperweld® wire and strand provides a long lasting, low impedance path to the earth.
