Generally, the majority of wires and cables use copper cores, but what type of copper is typically used? What are the specifications and models of copper core cables? Let’s take a look.
What Kind of Copper is Used in Copper Core Cables?
Rated Voltage 8.7/15kV Flame-retardant Copper Core Cross-linked Polyethylene Insulated Steel Tape Armored PVC Sheathed Power Cable.
“Rated Voltage 8.7/15kV” – Usage scenario/Voltage level.
“Flame-retardant” – Highlighted feature.
“Copper Core” – Conductor material.
“Cross-linked Polyethylene Insulation” – Insulation material.
“PVC Sheath” – Inner and outer sheath material (same material for both, inner sheath material is omitted).
Specifications and Models of Copper Core Cables
Copper core cable specifications and models include:
- VV, YJV single-core 1-1000mm
- VV, YJV two-core 1-185mm
- VV, YJV three-core 31.5-3400mm
- VV22, YJV22 three-core 31.5–3400mm
- VV, YJV three-core plus one-core 32.5+11.5mm²-3400mm²+1185mm
- VV22, YJV22 three-core plus one-core 32.5+11.5mm²-3400mm²+1185mm
- VV, YJV three-core plus two-core 36+24mm²-3400mm²+2185mm
- VV22, YJV22 three-core plus two-core 36+24mm²-3400mm²+2185mm
