Power cables require different types of electrical wiring in order to
operate, the most popular being copper. One of the reasons is that these wires
contain a high level of electrical conductivity. Aluminum conductor steel
reinforced is a good example. This conductivity allows for easy passage of
electricity without too much heating, and that it is much easier to control when
compared to copper strips and tinsel wire.
Further metals that may be used as a means of conducting electricity is iron.
While copper is more popular than iron in transmitting electricity, iron is more
effective as a PVC insulated wire as the plastic coating for wires is drawn from
iron. Why? Well, this metal is fire-resistant, has insulating properties and is
Duplex cable electrical wiring is required at various properties including
both commercial and residential. Copper is recommended for residential houses as
it offers higher flexibility and provides greater resistance to metal
exhaustion. It is also more malleable and durable allowing an adaptation to all
climates irrespective of the PVC insulated wire thickness.
