What are the types of cables used in domestic wiring?
Right Answer is:
All of the above
A cable is made up of conducting material, (copper or aluminum) surrounded by insulation and a sheath giving it mechanical protection. Insulation is provided on the conducting material to block the path of leakage current from the conductor, thus minimizing the risk of shock and fire. Normally cables are classified according to the insulation used over the conductor. The various classifications of cable commonly used for domestic wiring are as follows.
(i) Vulcanized Indian Rubber insulated cables (VIR).
(ii) Tough Rubber Sheathed cables (TRS)
(iii) Cab Tyre Sheathed cables (CTS)
(iv) Weather-proof cables
(v) Polyvinyl Chloride insulated cables (PVC)
(vi) Lead sheathed cables.
