What is an Electrical Cable?
Although we’ve talked about the different varieties of cable that we might use to power your premises, it’s important to understand the different components within the cable and how they all work together to transmit electricity from your generator or mains connection all the way to your device.
An electrical cable consists of four major parts:
- Electric conductor
- Auxiliary elements
- Outer sheath
The conductor is the key ingredient of a cable as it channels the flow of electricity from its source to its destination. There are many different types of conductor that can be used, including bare wire, copper or aluminium. Cables can also be single- or multi-core depending on how many conductors they feature.
Conductor insulation helps to prevent current leakage, preserve material integrity and stop conductors coming into contact with one another. Auxiliary elements further protect the cable and ensure that it is long-lasting.
The outer sheath holds all of these interior components together and protects them from external threats such as jagged surfaces, animals, trampling and more. This sheath can be made up of a variety of materials to ensure that it suits the purpose and environment that the cable will be used in.
