The Definition And The Difference Between Ordinary Cable And Aluminum Alloy Cable


1.The Definition Of Aluminum Alloy Cable
Aluminum alloy power cable, which is AA – 8000 series aluminum alloy materials for conductor, USES special compression technology and annealing treatment, and chain armoring process advanced technology invention of new materials such as power cables.
2, Difference Between Alloy Cable And Ordinary Cable
Metal cable the AA – 8000 series aluminum alloy conductor, while ordinary cable using copper or aluminum as cable conductor.
3, Why To Promote The Use Of Alloy Cable?
Under the same volume, the weight of the aluminum alloy is about a third times of the copper. According to the calculation, on the premise of meet the same conductivity, same weight aluminum alloy cable length is twice the copper cable. Therefore, the same load flow when the weight of the aluminum alloy cable is about half of the copper. Use aluminum instead of copper cable, can reduce cable weight, reduce installation cost, reduce the number of devices and cable wear, make installation work more easily.
4. The Advantage of Alloy Cable compare with Ordinary Cable:
Electrical conductivity:
The conductivity of the aluminum alloy is the most commonly used benchmark material copper 61.5% IACS, carrying capacity is 79% of the copper, is better than that of pure aluminum standards.
