5 Types Of Cables That Are The Right Choice For Your Home Installations

5 Types of Electrical Cables That Are Great For Home Installation

 

To transmit current to all the electric appliances you use, electricity requires a cable that connects to a socket. Usually, the cables used transmit power in accordance to each of its needs. Some cable types used for home installations are relatively simpler compared to other cables. If you’re looking for cables to use at home, here are some types you can use:

 

NYA Cable

N: Copper-core cable

Y: PVC insulation

A: Single core cable

 

NYA cables are used most often in household installations. Based on its code, NYA cables are single core cables made of copper, coated with PVC. Due to its single coat, it is advised to use an additional pipe to keep the cable safe from external elements such as room temperature and rodents.

 

 

NYAF Cable

N: Copper-core cable

Y: PVC insulation

A: Single core cable

F: Fine wire conductor (Fiber)

 

Same as the NYA cable, the NYAF cable is also a single core cable coated with PVC, although what differentiates is that it has a copper core in the form of fine wire. This makes this type of cable suitable for home installations that require a high level of flexibility such as sharp edges.

 

 

NYM Cable

N: Copper-core cable

Y: PVC insulation

M: Multi core cable

 

NYM cables are copper cables consisting of two, three or four cores, also complete with a PVC insulator. This type of cable is often used for a variety of home installations and buildings, although it is not suitable for installation under direct sunlight without additional protectants.

 

 

NYY Cable

N: Copper-core cable

Y: PVC insulation

Y: External PVC insulation

 

Identical to its code, NYY cables are the type of cables with two coats of PVC, making it flexible to be installed indoors or outdoors, or even in the ground with additional protectants. NYY cables are also available in the form of single core cables or multi core cables based on its usage.

 

 

NYMHY Cable

N: Copper-core cable

Y: PVC insulation

M: Multi core cable

H: Flexible cable (Fiber)

Y: External PVC insulation

 

Based on its code, NYMHY cable is a type of cable with a fine copper core, insulated with PVC. NYMHY cables have a form of fine fiber, often described as the flexible cable because it’s not prone to damage or fraying. For its application, NYMHY cables may be used to connect home appliances that may need to be moved around and stored in dry places.

 

 

Those are the types of cable that are the perfect choice for your home installations. However, it is worth noting that aside from its letters, the meaning of the cables’ codes may also be affected depending on its placements. For example, the code F on the cable NYAF is placed at the end, meaning it has fine wire cables. Whereas the letter M on NYM and NYMHY places third, meaning it is a multi core cable. To differentiate these, pay attention to the order of the letters as well.

 

As the brand of quality cables, Wilson Cables certainly provides the cables mentioned above, made of pure copper with PVC coatings to help it last longer and making it safer for your cable installations.
