Electrical Cabling

What do we mean by

Electrical Cabling?

Electrical Cabling is an area that businesses seem to overlook, deeming it to not be very important, however when you consider it as the backbone to your office connectivity, you really want to be placing great emphasis on getting it correct…

When we say electrical cabling, what we mean is 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.

Within the cable there are four elements:

  • Electric conductor
  • Insulation
  • Auxiliary elements
  • Outer sheath

The electric conductor is the fundamental component of the cable as it’s the element that channels the current of electricity from its source to its destination.

There are several different types of conductors that can be used, including bare wire, copper or aluminium and cables can be single- or multi-core depending on how many conductors they feature.

Conductor insulation helps to prevent current leakage, preserves the material integrity, preventing the conductors coming into contact with one another.

Auxiliary elements additionally protect the cable and supports longevity.

The outer sheath is the element that secures the interior components together, protecting them from the various external threats, including jagged surfaces, animals and inclement weather.

This sheath can be made up of several materials to ensure that it suits the purpose and environment that the cable will be used in.
