The quality of cables depends on the conductor and insulation. It is essential that both work perfectly and can resist any weather conditions.

Fremont, CA: Multicore cables are the most used wires because of its flexibility to be used in small and large processed. These cables should be adaptable and of high resistance to be implemented in various processes. However, it can be challenging for manufacturers to regularly offer quality wires, have a range of different sized wires in stock, and have a proper supply process. The key qualities of multicore cables are:

Insulation:

Wires and cables have PVC insulation to block current leakage to the outside environment. It adds a non-conductive feature, making it safe to use.

Separating sheath:

Separating sheath blocks current leakage in between live and neutral wires.

Conductor:

Conductors are highly ductile and resilient. Its role is to provide resistivity. However, if the conductor is impure, it will have an effect on the conductivity.

Conductor Screen:

Conductor screen helps prevent current leaks, reduces electrostatic stress, and maintain the circulation of current in a balanced way.
