Different Types of Cable Insulators

Electrical Cable can come with insulation or not. There are some type of over head transmission and distribution cable don’t have insulation on it because it stay up from ground level. But if a cable is passing through ground level and human and animal is crossing nearby then there is a big possibility that anyone can get Electrical Shock if the cable is not having insulation. Like cable insulation a cable insulator is also important equipments in power transmission and distributions Read More …

Aluminium Conductor Steel Rein-Forced (ACSR)

In my last post I talked about the various types of electrical cable conductor. Now I will discuss about (ACSR) Aluminium Conductor Steel Rein-Forced. So, let’s go. Aluminium Conductor Steel Rein-Forced: (ACSR) or Aluminium Conductor Steel Rein-Forced consist of a core of galvanized steel strand and it surrounded by a numbers of Aluminium strands. Normally the steel conductors are used for galvanized in order to prevent any kind of rusting and electrolytic corrosion. The cross section of the two metals Read More …
