We offer some of the more common, industry-standard electrical cable options, as well as custom cables for your needs.

About Electrical Cables

Electrical cable is assembled with one or more conductors and their insulations. They are typically comprised of stripped wires coated with insulation, then covered with a cable jacket to encase the entire bundle of wires.  Electrical cables can be made more flexible by stranding the wires—twisting or braiding wires together to produce larger wires instead of using one larger solid wire. Some of the problems surrounding cables is that like any conductor, they can pick up energy from any existing electromagnetic field surrounding them. This can adversely affect nearby equipment, cause equipment malfunction, and mask the signal being carried by the cable. Some solutions for this include keeping the cable length in buildings short, and to avoid installing cables near “troublesome” areas.

Types of Electrical Cable

Electrical cable is, of course, used for electrical transmission. There are a variety of types available, including:
