Certainly we are not familiar with the name of the cable, even every day we use the cable to turn on electronic goods or for the installation of electrical home appliances. Broadly speaking, the cable serves as a conductor of electric current only. But if you already know that the cable has different types based on the function? If not, then you should see the following article so that the cable you use is appropriate according to its kind and has the proper capacity. With right cable for electrical installations home it will be easier for you to use and will be more secure.
- NYA cable
This kind of cable is a cable that is most often used to house electrical installation. In general, the size of the NYA cables are used for electrical installations home which is sized 1.5 mm2 or 2.5 mm2. This cable is a single cable PVC clad material as. NYA cables are available in various color-coded insulation of which are black, red, yellow, blue. But because it uses only 1 layer of insulating material made NYA cables easily deformed, not water-resistant and prone to rat bites. Therefore for the sake of safety, when using this type of cable should plug the cable through the protective pipe, because the pipe will protect the cable from rodent bites and puddles. It also can protect from direct human touch when one part of the insulator chipped so safe.
- cables NYM
This type of cable is specifically designed for home electrical installations. In general, these cables are permanently installed inside the building either installed inside or outside walls can also be installed even in the pipeline safety. NYM cables have several options ranging from 2 to 5 core cable conductor. This cable uses two layers of PVC insulation is usually white or gray on the outer layer. In terms of security, NYM cables have characteristics more secure than wired NYA can even be used in wet or dry areas, but not for planting. The price is more expensive than cable NYA.
- cables NYY
This kind of cable is specifically designed for home electrical installations are embedded under the ground. However, when installing these cables should not be planted directly on the ground but must be given special protection such as PVC pipe or another. NYY cable is the cable without metal layers. In the cable insulator layer is made using PVC material that is extremely strong. Moreover, the insulating layer also use materials that do not like rats, so it can be used anywhere as placed inside and outside the home or in the field conditions were humid and dry. For still the same core layer NYM cable that consists of two or more core conductor. But the price of the cable NYY slightly more expensive than the NYM cable.
- cables NYAF
Judging from the type in the form of copper strands are wrapped with PVC insulation material. NYAF cable belonging to the types of flexible cable. NYAF cable can be used in home electrical instalalasi that require high flexibility or in places that have sharp bends. In this cable installation should still require additional security in the form of distribution pipes. This cable can only be used in dry areas and is not recommended to install in damp areas or exposed to direct sun beam.
- cables NYFGBY
This type of cable can be plugged directly to the installation of underground electrical home without the need for additional security. Unless forced to walk through it should be fitted with additional. Under normal conditions, the default cable can be installed at a depth of 0.8 meters below ground.
- cables NYCY
NYCY type cables composed of wires protodur are protected by CU ribbon cable. These cables are commonly installed on home electrical installations with concentric conductor. Placement can be in the soil, indoor, water, cable channels and in the open. The layers of ribbon cable CU can protect from mechanical damage.
- cables BC
You could say this is only a conductor wires only or so-called bare wires, because the cable is composed of copper wire were put together without using any insulator layer. BC cable has a maximum voltage of 6-500 mm2 / 500 V. As for the use of it can be used for electrical installations above ground and as a grounding conductor.
- AAAC cable
In general, these cables as a cable bc but the difference is of material used ie from a mixture, magnesium and metals as well as using insulators. AAAC cables have good conductivity, resistance to weather or corrosion resistant and high strength. Usually these cables are used for transmission lines or power distribution network.
- ACSR cable
ACSR cable is a type of high-capacity cable, this cable normally used for high voltage power lines. This kind of cable is composed of aluminum wires on the outer layer while the core layer using strong steel wire. Therefore that is what makes this cable has a high tensile strength so it is best suited for high voltage power lines where the distance between poles / towers far from each other.
- cable ACAR
ACAR cable wires made of aluminum composition that has been reinforced with metal loops mix. The blend of the characteristics of this cable makes stronger than ACSR cable.
- cables NYMHYO
When you need a permanent conductivity and require a large electric power such as a refrigerator or air conditioner then you should use a cable type HIS / NYM. But if you temporary electrical conduction with the power as described above, you can use a cable NYMHYO. This cable is a cable with two core fibers. This cable is generally used for equipment sound system, loudspeaker or to roll electric. This type of cable is able to conduct electricity between 20VA-50VA. Whereas when you use a cable permanently NYMHYO then should you need to replace these cables because prone to electrical hazards and to make excessive use of electricity.
- cables NYMHY
This kind of cable is specifically designed to be used as the connecting household appliances has high flexibility. This cable has advantages in insulating layer plastic is resistant to hot temperatures. In general, this type of cable from the last buffer heat in excess of 85 degrees Celsius. When the cable is used in the heating and the heating temperature exceeds a predefined limit then it will jeopardize the cable itself.
