Armoured cables

  1. Oct 27, 2011 #1
    Hello guys , i have a question related to cable mechanical properties

    you know power cables have armouring , which enhance the mechanical properties for the cable

    the question is : what is the difference between the Tape armour and wire armour i know the difference in how they look like and the difference in construction but what i mean , when the tape armouring is preferred over wire armouring and vice verse

    Thanks alot
