InSky ACS Ground Wire (Aluminum-Clad Steel Ground Wire) is a standard component of high-voltage transmission lines. It can be used when fiber capacity is not needed or when additional fault current capacity is required. Aluminum-clad steel wires are highly corrosion-resistant and can be barely destroyed by heat during accidents. The technology of cladding ensures no peeling or crumbling of the aluminum.

InSky ACS Ground Wire manufactured by Incab has a proven design life of 50 years and rated breaking strength (RBS) from 6,744 up to 157,366 lb. ACS ground wires shield high-voltage conductors from lightning strikes. Aluminum-clad steel ground wires are typically used in regions with much higher lightning activity (such as the USA or Brazil), showing excellent reliability under real operating conditions. The electrical resistance of the InSky ACS ground wire is about 2 times lower, which means it is more resistant to short-circuit current. Relatively low weight of InSky ACS Ground Wire provides lower load on transmission line supports.
