  • What is the difference between aluminium and copper wire armoured cable?

  • An example using a 35 mm 3-core steel wire armoured cable. From Table 1 it can be seen that, size for size, aluminium cable is smaller and lighter than copper except for the current rating which is very much lower. This means that a larger cable size must be selected if aluminium is to be used.

  • What size wire do I need for a 6mm aluminum wire?

  • 6 mm2 aluminum wire is somewhere between AWG #9 and #10 . To be on the safe side we use AWG #10 (the smallest one) in the figure above and estimates the maximum current to be approximately 30 amps.

  • How to choose the right size of aluminium cable?

  • When selecting the correct size of aluminium cable the impedance must be carefully evaluated. An example using a 35 mm 3-core steel wire armoured cable. From Table 1 it can be seen that, size for size, aluminium cable is smaller and lighter than copper except for the current rating which is very much lower.

  • Can you use aluminum wire for electrical wiring?

  • Aluminum to Copper electrical connectors THE WIRE WORKS, THE CONNECTIONS ARE THE PROBLEM Aluminum wire does a good job of conducting electricity (although you do have to use one size larger wire than copper for the same electrical load) and can do the same job for less money. So for a short while it was used in houses for regular wiring.
