Various Uses of Copper Wire

There are few wires that are more versatile than copper. Copper wire has seen its use in everything from power generation to telecommunications. Whether it’s a bare copper braid or a stranded copper cable, the renowned electrical conductivity, tensile strength and flexibility of copper is why it is so popular for electrical wiring.

Copper wire is also the most widely used wire for home wiring and even in building wire to supply electricity through homes, businesses or anywhere else you need it. Many houses are labeled as “all-copper homes” to let people know that copper conductors are used in everything from the circuit breaker panels to the dedicated branches for heavy load appliances.

Communications makes use of copper wire in forms such as coaxial cables used in mainframe computer systems. Because of the ability of the copper core and copper braid jacket, coaxial cables can operate at higher frequencies, with less interferencewhile providing a constant conductor spacing.This makes them popular as radio frequency transmission lines as well.

Even automobiles make use of insulated and bare copper wire due to its hardiness and ability to resist elevated temperatures, humidity, fire and chemicals.
