The scope of this project is to develop a system that will measure the residual layer of zinc on the steel strands of the core of ACSR conductors and overhead steel ground wires. The corrosion sensor system is divided in three main components: Sensor Head: containing the actual measuring device and an encoder Eddy Current Electronic Unit : containing the electronics to drive the sensor head Data collection unit: Analysis software and the data presentation for the end users

To develop an ACSR Conductor Corrosion detection piece of equipment.

1. Production of a functional specification

2. System Specification

3. Development of Technology

4. Technology Validation
