What is the function of wire and cable armour?

In order to protect the structural integrity and electrical performance of the cable and improve the service life of the cable, it is necessary to add armor layer to the outer sheath of the cable. There are usually two types of cable armour, tape armour and wire armour.

I am going to take you through the functions of armored cables in the hope that it will be helpful for you to better understand armored cables.

Cable:
Armored cable refers to cable with metal armored protective layer. The purpose of cable armored layer is to enhance the service life of mechanical protection extension such as tensile strength and compressive strength, and also to improve by shielding protection

Cable anti-interference performance.
Common armor materials include steel tape, steel wire, aluminum tape, aluminum tube, etc. Steel tape and steel wire armor layer have high magnetic permeability and good magnetic shielding effect, which can be used to resist low frequency interference and make the armored cable buried directly

Laying without wearing pipes and inexpensive in practical use more.

Shielded cable:
Armored cable mechanical protection layer can be added to any cable structure to increase the mechanical strength of the cable and improve the erosion resistance. It is a special cable designed for vulnerable areas to mechanical damage and erosion.

Any kind of laying can be adopted, and it is more suitable for directly buried laying in rocky areas. Generally speaking, some armored cables are also buried wires and cables. The purpose of power line transmission is to enhance the resistance of electric power cables with armor layer

In addition to mechanical protection extending its service life, such as tensile strength and compressive strength, the armor has the necessary resistance to external forces and can prevent some rats from biting, so as not to cause power transmission problems through the armor. The bending radius of the armor shall be required

Large, armored layers can be grounded to protect cables.

Henan Huaxing wire and cable Co., LTD., founded in 1986, has more than 30 years of brand precipitation, is a professional production of wire and cable products of large enterprises. The company’s wire and cable products are all raw materials used in China

The high purity non-oxygen copper, insulating materials and sheathing materials of high quality are produced and inspected in strict accordance with the national standards. All the products have passed the inspection before leaving the factory and meet the national sampling inspection. We are looking forward to cooperating with you.
