Optical Fiber Cable http://www.xlpecables.com/blog/optical-fiber-cable_4548.htm Thu, 18 Dec 2014 11:37:50 +0530 An Optical Fiber Cable is basically a cable comprising one or more optical fibers that are used to carry light. The optical fiber elements are coated separately with plastic layers and enveloped in a protective tube, apt for the conditions, where the cable has to be deployed. Different types of Optical Fiber Cables are taken in application, for different kind of purposes like, long distance telecommunication or transmission of high speed data connection between different areas of a building.<br /><br /><strong>The working of Optical Fiber Cable</strong><br /><br />The working of an Optical Fiber Cable is based on the rule of total internal reflection. Light reflects or refracts‚ on the basis of the angle at which it hits a surface. Optical fiber communications follows the principle that light in a glass medium can carry more data over longer distances than electrical signals in copper or radio frequencies with the help of a wireless medium.<br /><br /><strong>Types of Optical Fiber Cable</strong><br /><br />Typically, there are two types of Optical Fiber Cable; single mode and multimode fiber cable. Multimode fiber was the first commercially sold fiber cable. It has a large core that enables hundreds of light modes to transmit through the fiber at the same time. The large core diameter of multimode fiber is ideal for use in low cost optical transmitters such as light emitting diodes.<br /><br />On the other hand‚ single mode fiber cable has a smaller core that enables the transmission of only one mode of light at a time, through the core. Although, it may seem like that multimode fiber has higher capacity‚ in reality, single mode fiber is considered to be the most efficient.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.xlpecables.com/optical-fiber-cable.htm"><b>Optical Fiber Cables</b></a> are easy to install as they are very light weight. They are small in size and are quite flexible. However, tight bends should be avoided as it may cause loss of light. Porcelain Insulators: Resisting Electricity At Their Best http://www.xlpecables.com/blog/porcelain-insulators-resisting-electricity-at-their-best_4669.htm Wed, 07 Jan 2015 10:52:36 +0530 <p style="text-align: justify;">Porcelain is Aluminum Silicate. <a href="http://www.xlpecables.com/porcelain-insulators.htm"><b>Porcelain Insulators</b></a> have a number of advantages and are thus preferred in applications requiring electrical insulation. They are not dangerous waste and are thus environment friendly; they are attributed with superior electrical strength; they exhibit exceptional resistance to degradation of the surface in physically challenging conditions, they do not show signs of defects in the ceramics-to-metal interface and have many more properties that make them ideal for electrical insulation. <br /><br /><strong>Porcelain Insulators</strong><br />Porcelain insulators have their origin even before the Civil War. Porcelain has greater strength and surface resistance because of which it has become the standard for power distribution. These insulators have remarkable electrical properties. Porcelain insulators are mostly compared to glass and are preferred because of their high electrical load bearing capacity. They are available in as many colors and significantly more styles. Porcelain insulators are made up of clay or alumina and coated with a substance that serves as a shield against moisture. Porcelain insulators are manufactured with wet clay that makes it long lasting. <br /><br /><strong>Porcelain Insulators Resist Electricity at its Best</strong><br />Porcelain is aluminum silicate. The Porcelain insulators have 25+ kV/mm-electrical strength that is higher than the polymer that has just 20 kV/mm electrical strength. Porcelain Insulators practically have higher resistance since the conductive path is created slowly in comparison to that of composite-material insulator. The porcelain insulators offer high mechanical strength under pressure and hardness. It does not deform unless external force is deployed. Porcelain is well known for resisting electrical conductivity, which makes it ideal and distinguishable from others.<br /><br />Hence, one can agree to the fact that porcelain insulators resist electricity at its best. It has been widely acknowledged that porcelain insulators are the strongest, most durable of all that gives a varied range of benefits to the manufacture of electrical porcelain insulators. Porcelain insulator is a wise choice to make since it resists electricity at its best.</p> Cost effective PVC insulated cable solutions in India http://www.xlpecables.com/blog/cost-effective-pvc-insulated-cable-solutions-in-india_4948.htm Mon, 09 Mar 2015 17:14:13 +0530 <p>SWA or steel wire armoured cable is the hard-wearing or non-wearing power cable designed to supply mains electricity.
