The difference between aluminum alloy cable and ordinary cable

Mar. 28, 2019

1.Definition of aluminum alloy cable

The aluminum alloy power cable is a new material power cable which is invented by AA-8000 series aluminum alloy material as a conductor, using special compression technology and annealing treatment, and chain armor technology.

2.the difference between alloy cable and ordinary cable

The alloy cable uses AA-8000 series aluminum alloy conductors, while the ordinary cable uses copper or pure aluminum as the cable conductor.

3.Why promote the use of alloy cables

At the same volume, the actual weight of the aluminum alloy is about one-third that of copper. According to this calculation, the same weight of the aluminum alloy cable is twice as long as the copper cable, while satisfying the same electrical conductivity. Therefore, the weight of the aluminum alloy cable at the same current carrying capacity is about half that of the copper cable. The replacement of copper cables with aluminum alloy cables can reduce cable weight, reduce installation costs, reduce equipment and cable wear, and make installation easier.

4.Advantages of alloy cable over ordinary cable

Conductive properties: The conductivity of aluminum alloy is 61.5% of the most commonly used reference material copper IACS, and the current carrying capacity is 79% of copper, which is better than pure aluminum standard.
