FAQ
Q
What is insulation material of power cable?
A
The common insulation material of power cable are PVC, XLPE, PE, Rubber, Fluoroplastic, and some special mineral compound.
Q
What is wire gauge?
A
The nominal cross-sectional area are 0.5mm2, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 4, 6, 10, 16, 25, 50, 70, 95, 120, 150, 185, 240, 300, 400 500, 630, 800, 1000, 1200, 1600, 2500, 3000mm2, the AWG are 24 to 0AWG and 1to 4/0AWG, and 250 to 3000MCM.
Q
How are portable power cables different from other kinds of power cable?
A
Portable cable, also called portable cord, is designed for temporary power supply applications, rather than for permanent installations. This cable is often referred to as “service cord” when supplying electricity to motors or appliances. Other, non-portable power supply cables may be installed permanently in buildings as overhead wiring, exposed wiring, or in direct burial applications to provide long-term electrical service.
Q
What is welding cable ampacity?
A
Ampacity is short for ampere capacity. For welding cables, ampacity refers to the maximum amount of electrical current a spool of cable can conduct before advanced deterioration sets in. For more detail on ampacity.
Q
What is welding cable made from?
A
Welding cable is made from stranded bundles of copper wire tightly packed and insulated. The wire stranding gives the cable more flexibility and resistance to wear, while the insulation (typically EPDM or Neoprene rubber) adds additional protection against the harsh environments found in welding applications and is more flexible than PVC or other rubber coatings.
Q
What is insulation material of welding cable?
A
Welding cable usually comes with rubber insulation, typically either Neoprene or Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) rubber, and is designed to be fire (small sparks), water, oil, and abrasion resistant.
