Preformed Armor Rods

Armor rods are designed to protect cables from bending, compression, abrasion and flashover. They are also used to repair damaged aluminum-based conductors and restore the mechanical strength and electrical conductivity of the conductors.

Product Description
Armor rods are designed to protect cables from bending, compression, abrasion and flashover. They are also used to repair damaged aluminum-based conductors and restore the mechanical strength and electrical conductivity of the conductors.

The armor rod is an accessory used for aluminum conductor, steel-reinforced(ACSR, all-aluminum alloy conductors(AAAC) and aluminum-clad steel conductor. Boersen Photoelectric armor rods play an important role in the armor rods transmission line and distribution line.

Armor rods are of aluminum alloy for use on the phase conductors, and of aluminum clad steel for use on the overhead ground wires.

The armor rod material should be similar to conductor surface material, avoiding corrosion between different elements. All types of armor rods come with a color code which helps identify the conductor size easily. The color code is also regarded as a mark during installation.

Features
Armor rod single support and armor rod double support lengths are available.

Thermal Rating (Continuous) Within a high temperature Suspension Clamp 250°C, ACSS Repair 250°C, ACSR Repair 125°C.

Available PARROT-BILL ends to meet the corona onset and RIV requirements for most EHV applications.
Preformed Armor Rods
Preformed armor rods are of the factory pre-formed type and are made of a material compatible with conductor, ground wire and installed in the suspension clamps. Rods are shaped in such a way that they will grip the conductor and ground wire tightly, We can produce various types of armor rods. The raw materials of the armor rod are aluminum wire, galvanized steel wire, and aluminum-clad steel wire. The customer chooses the armor rod material according to the conductor’s raw material.
