Steel Conductor
China Edition

Copper-bonded Steel Conductor


The Copper-bonded Steel
Conductor (CBSC), part of the
ERITECH line of Facility Electrical
Protection products from ERICO,
is comprised of an electrolytic
coating of copper deposited over
a layer of nickel. This process
ensures a long-lasting, molecular
bond between the copper layer
and the steel core.
The conductor core consists of a
low-carbon steel grade for improved exibility in the eld. The
copper surface of the conductor
provides high conductivity and
corrosion-resistance properties.

Substation column grounding

Features
Cost effective long service life

Minimum copper plating thickness of 0.254 mm

Copper-bonded coating will not crack or tear


when the conductor is bent

Available in nominal diameters of 8, 10, 13, 14, 16 and


18 mm

High resistance to corrosion and provides a


low-resistance path to ground

Meets the requirements of IEC 62305-3 Edition 2 and


EN 62561-2 for lightning protection applications

Available in standard packaging length of


100 meters

Theft-deterrent - hard to cut with hand tools due to


steel core

Applications:
The unique properties of the copper-bonded steel conductor make
it ideal for both horizontal and vertical placement. Above-grade, the
conductor is well-suited as a lightning-protection conductor when
applied in accordance with the IEC 62305-3 Edition 2.0 standard, or
as a grounding and bonding conductor where copper theft on-site may
occur. The copper-bonded steel conductor is ideal for use in a variety
of applications including power distribution grounding and bonding;
substation grounding; commercial, industrial and railway grounding;
and lightning protection.
