Types of Armoured Cable

Types of armored cable are :
SWA (steel wire armored) cable, STA (steel tape armored) cable, AWA (aluminum wire armored), and ATA (aluminum tape armored). It is suitable for underground or outdoor cables with single or multiple core conductors. Like Copper single/multicore armored cable or Aluminum single/multicore armored cable.
The Underground Armored Cable mechanical protection layer can be added to any structure of the cable. To increase the mechanical strength of the cable and improve the ability to prevent corrosion. It is a cable designed for areas subject to mechanical damage and erosion. Can be laid in any way, more suitable for direct buried laying in rocky areas.

Aluminum Wire Armored Cable — AWA Cable

AWA (Aluminum Wire Armored) cable is used for single-core cables because it is non-magnetic. Therefore, when the current passes through the cable, a magnetic field is generated (the higher the voltage, the larger the magnetic field). The magnetic field will induce currents (eddy currents) in the steel armor, which can lead to overheating of the AC system. The non-magnetic aluminum armored cable prevents this from happening.
It is commonly used for primary power and auxiliary control cables in a variety of environments including overhead transmission lines, outdoor, indoor, and underground power systems, and cable ducts.
This series of the armored power cable can be replaced with an MDPE outer sheath instead of PVC to improve abrasion resistance and water resistance, its structure then becomes XLPE/PVC/AWA/MDPE.

Conductor: Copper, aluminum.
Insulation: Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE)
Inner sheath: Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
Armor: AWA
Outer sheath: PVC, PE, LSZH, MDPE

Characteristics of Armored Cables

A steel armored cable wire mechanical protection layer can be added to any structure of the cable to increase the mechanical strength of the cable and enhance erosion resistance. It is a special cable designed to avoid mechanical damage and erosion-prone areas. It can be laid in any way and is suitable for direct burial in rocky areas. Simply put, the armored cable is also known as an underground power cable. The purpose of power line transmission cable with an armor layer is not only to enhance the tensile strength, compressive strength, and other mechanical protection to extend the service life. The armor has the necessary resistance to external forces and can also cause some rats to tear. To ensure that the power transmission problem is caused by the armor, the bending radius of the armor should be larger, and the armor layer can be grounded to protect the cable.
