The conductivity of aluminum alloy is 61.8% of the most commonly used
benchmark copper IACS and 79% of copper, which is better than pure aluminum
standard. But at the same volume, the actual weight of the aluminum alloy is
about one third of that of copper. Therefore, the weight of the Aluminum Alloy
Cable is about half that of the copper cable. Using aluminum alloy cable instead
of copper cable can reduce cable weight, reduce installation cost, reduce wear
of equipment and cable, make installation work easier.
Under the premise of satisfying the same electrical performance, the weight
of aluminum alloy cable is half of the copper core cable, and its section is
1.1~1.25 times of the traditional copper core cable, which is 15~30% lower than
the traditional copper core cable.
