Wires

A wire is a single, usually cylindrical, flexible strand or rod of metal. Wires are used to bear mechanical loads or electricity and ... as in "multistranded wire", which is more correctly termed a wire rope in mechanics, or a cable in electricity.

The two most common types of single conductor wires are THW and THWN/THHN, which are protected by metal or plastic sheathing. The wires themselves can be either solid or stranded. Solid-core wire produces the best connections, but its stiffness makes it more difficult than stranded wire to route through conduit.

Make sure to check the rating for indoor or outdoor application as well as for temperature tolerance.

The mostly commonly used metal for wires is copper, due to its efficiency as a conductor. Wire also comes in aluminum and aluminum clad with copper, but, because these are not as efficient in conducting current, the wires need to be larger to achieve the same capacity.

Braided wires do not break easily when flexed. Braided wires are often suitable as an electromagnetic shield in noise-reduction cables. The Wire is a single electrical conductor, whereas a cable is a group of wires swathed in sheathing. The term cable originally referred to a nautical line of multiple ropes used to anchor ships, and in an electrical context, cables (like wires) are used to carry electrical currents.

Cables

The most common multiconductor cable is made from metal or plastic and contains a neutral wire, a “hot” wire (or two), and a grounding wire. The neutral and hot wires are insulated by a thermoplastic material; the grounding wire may or may not be insulated. The wires are color-coded to guard against connection errors. Neutral wires are white or gray, grounding wires are green, and hot wires are any other color.

The various types of cable are also designated by how many conductors they contain and their size. For example, a cable identified as “14-2” with ground has one neutral and one hot wire as well as a grounding wire. The #14, designated by the American Wire Gauge, stands for the diameter of the wires alone, without insulation. The larger the diameter, the greater the wire’s capacity is to carry current.
A conductor’s designation is stamped on the cable sheathing as well as on each wire.

Electrical cables may be made more flexible by stranding the wires. Copper wires in a cable may be bare or they may be plated.

A power cable is an assembly of one or more electrical conductors, usually held together with an overall sheath. The assembly is used for transmission of electrical power. Power cables may be installed as permanent wiring within buildings, buried in the ground, run overhead, or exposed.

Flexible power cables are used for portable devices, mobile tools and machinery.

A cable assembly is a group of cables or wires that are arranged into a single unit. Cable assemblies are often used for transmitting power or informational signals and provide the power of several individual cables and organize them in an easier to install package that is also easier to replace and maintain.

There are many applications that use cable assemblies. They are often found in airplanes, cars, and construction equipment. Cable assemblies can also be part of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and RF, serial, Ethernet and high-speed connectivity applications.

Team Tron Services supplies high-performance cable assemblies which include:

  • Low profile, high performance microwave cable assemblies
  • Microwave test cable assemblies
  • Flexible microwave cable assemblies
  • Hand-formable and form-stable microwave cable assemblies

Cable assembles are high-quality coaxial cables (50, 75 and over 75 Ohm) and connectors. These cables can be customized to your required specifications. All cable assemblies are tested to IEC, CECC and other international standards.

Team Tron Services supplies high- performance hook-up wires in different standards and applications which include:

  • Small dimensions
  • High-temperature resistance
  • Low weight and low flame propagation
  • Single conductor electrical wires, tin-coated, silver-coated, or nickel-coated conductors of copper or copper alloy.
  • Insulated with TFE, PEP, PVF2, ETFE, PVC, Nylon, FEP, PTFE, PFA, and more. These resins can be used alone or in combination with any of the insulation materials.
