Chapter 4: What are the properties of industrial cable?
Our industrial cable has the best properties you will ever get with other cables. Some of the outstanding properties include;
|1. Electrical conductivity
|Electrical conductivity is the measure of how well a material can transport an electric charge. This is an essential property of industrial cables. Copper has the highest electrical conductivity. Our industrial cable is made of copper conductors.
|2. Tensile strength
|This is the force required to pull an object to the point where it breaks. Our industrial cable has high tensile strength.
|This is the ability to deform under tensile strength. This property is very important as the cable cannot be hammered or drawn.
|4. Corrosion resistance
|This is the unwanted breakdown of a cable due to chemical reactions. Our cable is made of copper which is a good resistance of moisture, humidity, and industrial pollution.
|5. Thermal conductivity
|Thermal conductivity is the ability of a cable to conduct heat. In industries, high thermal conductivity is important for dissipating waste heat. The presence of copper in our industrial cable helps in reducing thermal hot spots.
|Our cables are very flexible in such a way it can bend and still return to its original shape.
For this and other properties, our industrial cables perform best as per most of our customer’s feedback. Work with us today and let us make your project a success with our industrial cable solutions.

Chapter 6: What are the precautions for handling industrial cables?
A.C wiring should be carried out with multicore cables. When it is necessary to use multicore cables, they should either be unarmoured or armored.
When multi or single cables are connected in parallel phase they should be of the same type. They should also be of the same equal length.
All cables of the same phase should be alternated with those of the other phase. This should be done to avoid unequal division of the current. In the case of two cables per phase, please confirm with IEC6009-352.
Chapter 7: How do you select an industrial cable?
The following are some of the considerations you should take when selecting industrial cable;
The conductor size– the conductor size of an industrial cable must be sufficient to keep losses sufficiently low. The diameter of the conductor affects the strength of the electric field. This means a solid conductor will have less dielectric stress than a stranded conductor. If you increase the number of strands it will reduce losses if the current is of high frequency.
The insulation material- the insulation around the conductor might be slightly conductive. This is done to reduce electric stress by creating a larger diameter of the conducting surface. There are many insulating types available with us and their selection depends on factors such as flexibility, frequency, price, and AC or DC voltage.
At higher voltages there here might be a combination of layers of the insulation to manage the stress.
Shielding- industrial cables create a field around the conductor that is influenced by the cable insulation and everything that is in proximity to it. If shielding is used then the field is contained between the conductor and the shield. You can calculate this using the dielectric constant and the thickness of the cable insulation.
Also, use insulation with a low dielectric constant. Also, an industrial cable should have a metallic screening to prevent radiated electromagnet field.
Chapter 8: How to install industrial cables
Installation of industrial cable is a very important practice in industries. Many have the industrial cable but lack someone to install for them.
Are you facing any challenges in installing your industry cable? Worry no more. At SSG we offer installation services to all our customers. We can also offer online tutorials to customers who can’t reach us physically.
At SSG Cable, we ensure that our industrial cables are PVC insulated and have copper conductors installed in every gauge steel. This is essential for the safety of those working in the industries.
We have a license in cable installation hence we assure you no risk of electrical fire from faulty installation. We have a team of licensed, highly trained electricians who can do the installation for you. We also check for any troubleshoot with your industrial cables. Call us today and you won’t be disappointed in the future.
For those who like to install the industrial cable for themselves, below are safe steps to follow when doing so.
- Design a cabling diagram
You need to design a cabling diagram which shows the location of the breaker box and the path of the cables to each outlet.
- Install conduits
Start each cable upstairs and pull it through the basement. You need to start by running the longest cables first to avoid wastage of conduits in walls. In this way, you do not use a ladder to push the cable up between the floors.
You should also leave at least one foot of extra cable at each end just in case you need to move things around later.
- Know outlet count
You need to determine how many outlets and switches will run on one circuit. Normally six outlets per a 110 voltage circuit are advisable
- Drill cable holes
First, before drilling any hole, you need to know what is on the other side of the wall. This is to avoid drilling through any water pipes or ductwork.
Drill holes of 1 inch bit in the middle of the studs where your cables will travel. The more outlets you have, the safer your industry.
- Set a breaker
Set your breaker box where you can easily access it in the future. A location in a basement or a utility room is desirable.
- Pull the cable wires to the outlets
Place the roll of wire next to the breaker box and pull the wire according to your diagram to the outlets for each switch. You can also run the wires straight through the box.
Use a wire stripper to remove the outer plastic coating from the ends of the wire. Attach them according to the instructions we have provided you in the box at each outlet.
- Install the circuit
Install individual circuits for each wire set. The circuits must match the amperage of the wire and the intended purpose of the outlet.
Follow the above steps of achieving a successful installation process. In case of any challenge in installation don’t hesitate to call us.
