Which is Better? Solid Copper Wire or Stranded Wire?

Description:

Both wires are equally usable as per suitable conditions. Where flexibility is important or desirable, you should use stranded wire. It can use in automobiles and short distances. Solid wires are just a single wire which is not as flexible as stranded wire. They are much more durable and can be easily procured. Visit @ – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Which is Better? Solid Copper Wire or Stranded Wire?


1
Which is Better? Solid Copper Wire or Stranded
Wire?
2
There are two types of wires that are generally
used in the conduction of electricity. The
conduction capacity is also identical between the
two as they are made from Copper. But, there is
always a comparison, which one is the best to
use. So lets talk about which one you should
prefer for home.

Stranded Copper Wire
Stranded wire is generally a bundle of numerous
solid wires bound together. Many thin wires are
twisted together. It provides great flexibility
to the wire and makes it suitable for use where
the wire needs to be bent or moved around. It
also makes them durable for use and provides long
term stability. The perfect example of usage of
stranded wire can be a robot arm which has
frequent movement with high flexibility required.
You can also see the use of Stranded Copper Wires
in automobiles. The gauge of the wire should be
selected by the technician to determine where the
wire has to be used. Stranded cables should be
used for short distances as the attenuation in
these cables is high.

Solid Copper Wire
Solid wire is just a single wire which is not as
flexible as stranded wire. It can be used for
horizontal and vertical movement. It should not
be flexed, twisted or bent as it can easily get
damaged. Solid wires are useful in backbone
cabling outdoor applications where there is no
requirement for bending or twisting the wires.
They are much more durable and can be easily
procured. They are also equally durable as
stranded wires but they should be put to proper
use as per their capacity. An electrician can
easily suggest you which wire you need for your
home as per the requirement.

Final Verdict
Both wires are equally usable as per suitable
conditions. Where flexibility is important or
desirable, you should use stranded wire. Solid
wires are suitable for backbone connections.
Where corrosion can be a problem, Stranded Copper
Flexible wires should be used. But stranded wires
are not suitable for outdoor applications and
solid type wires work there. Solid wires also
have a cost advantage over stranded type wires.

You can find a variety of copper wires on Ganpati
Wires. Years of business has made them a
reputable source to buy electrical wiring
components in India.
