The overall performance of ECCA Wire is better than that of pure copper conductors. The adoption of ECCA wire in the wire and cable industry is also a good way to relieve the pressure of current enterprises. Today, I will give you a brief introduction.
ECCA wire is formed by concentrically coating a copper layer on the surface of aluminum and drawing, and the thickness of the copper layer is more than 0.55 mm. Due to the skin effect of high-frequency signal transmission on conductor, cable TV signal is transmitted on the surface of copper layer over 0.008mm, the inner conductor of ECCA wire can completely meet the signal transmission requirements, and its signal transmission characteristics are consistent with the copper body of the same diameter wire. Combined, ECCA wire has great advantages.
Pure copper conductor has higher strength and elongation than ECCA wire conductor, which means pure copper is better than ECCA wire in mechanical properties. From the point of view of cable design, pure copper conductor has better mechanical strength than ECCA wire, which is not necessarily required in practical application.
ECCA wires are much lighter than pure copper, because the overall weight of the cables of ECCA wire is lighter than that of pure copper conductor cables, which will bring convenience to the transportation of cables and the erection and construction of cables. In addition, ECCA wire is softer than pure copper, and cables produced with ECCA wire is better in flexibility than pure copper cables. Moreover, ECCA wire is sold by weight, and pure copper conductors are also sold by weight. The price of ECCA wire is higher than that of pure copper conductor with the same weight, but the length of ECCA wire with the same weight is much longer than that of pure copper conductor, and the cable is calculated by length and the ECCA wire with the same weight is 2.5 times the length of copper wire, and the price is only a few hundred yuan per ton.
