Zinc-Coated Steel Wires for Telephony

Zinc-Coated Wire Strands for Lightning


Arresters at Power Transmission Lines

Produced according to ASTM A-111,


zinc-coating classes A and B.
The main application of this product
is in telephone and signal
transmission lines. Also used
as ground wires (counterpoise)
as a substitute for zinc-coated wires
fabricated conforming
to ASTM A-411.

(Ground Cable)

Modulus of Elasticity and


Coefficient of Linear
Expansion:
Average Modulus of
Elasticity (young) of wire
strands = 18,500 kgf/mm2

7-wire strand with double galvanizing and HS / EHS


resistance class manufactured conforming to ABNT
NBR 5908 and ASTM A-363.
Recommended for aerial cables over conducting
cables for assuring extra protection from damages
caused by atmospheric electrical discharges.
The basic characteristics of this product are:

Modulus of Elasticity
of comprising wires =
20,000 kgf/mm2
For steel wires and strands,
the difference between the
initial and final moduli
of elasticity is negligible;
the same value should be
considered for both cases.

Notes:
To obtain the electrical resistances
of zinc-coating class B for types EBB
and BB, multiply the figures
in the table by factors 0.98 and 0.97,
respectively.
To obtain breaking loads in kgf, divide
the figures (N) by 9.81.

Zinc-Coated for Electrification


and Communication
Belgo Bekaert zinc-coated steel wires and strands
for electrification and communication comply
with Brazilian and international specifications.
Product quality control begins with the selection
of raw materials for steel production, passing
through a series of tests during manufacturing
process, and proceeding through after-sale service.
The wires are double galvanized to meet zinccoating classes 1 and 2 (ABNT) and A and B (ASTM),
having quality certified by ISO 9002.

posts, chimneys, and other vertical structures.
Also used to hold communication cables and electrical
conductors, in addition to grounding transmission lines
(counterpoise) as a substitute for zinc-coated wires.

Characteristics

Characteristics

Density = 7.78 g/cm2 (7,780 kg/m2) at 20C.


Resistivity For calculation purposes, the typical value 0.19157
should be adopted.

Less propensity to corrosion


Better electrical conductibility

Characteristics

Check in the tables below for length limits relative


to at least 95% of the batch supplied.
