A highly sophisticated conductor for high-voltage overhead lines has been launched on the power transmission market by Nexans since several years.
These are fully-locked conductor cables, known as AERO-Z®, integrating one or more concentric layers of profiled wires in the form of a "Z." The outer layer, which is virtually smooth, has small helical grooves created between the upper edges of the Z-shaped wires with carefully chosen lay, depth and pitch. The characteristics of these AERO-Z® cables are more interesting than those of traditional stranded cables with round wires.
- Reduced drag coefficient

- Reduced galloping probability
- Improved shock absorption
- No internal corrosion
- Inaudible innature
- Reduceed line losses
- Solution to snow and ice accretion
