Hook-Up Wire & Building Wire

  1. What is Hook-Up Wire?

    Post by : Sycor Marketing

    Hook-up wire, also known as appliance wire or lead wire, are single conductor insulated wires that are typically used in the internal wiring of electrical equipment. These applications can range from motors, control and power circuits, switchboards, panels, transformers and rectifiers.

  2. LSZH vs PVC

    Post by : Sycor Marketing

    There are many different factors to consider when designing an electrical cables construction. The type of conductor metal, the colour, size, number of conductors, and even materials used. Often when deciding on a specific wiring configuration, there's a number of different application considerations to go over. Today we'll be breaking down two popular insulating materials and why they were created. These insulating materials are known as Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Low-Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH).

  5. Building Wire

    Post by : Sycor Marketing

    In the last one hundred years, humankind has developed and evolved more than ever before. From technology to infrastructure, everything we know has changed drastically. We now live in a time where buildings are so tall they touch the sky and technology so advanced we're able to keep in touch with people half a world away. The topic our team wants to dive into is the wiring behind the advanced infrastructures of today's world. With buildings reaching over 800 meters in the sky, the designs of these mega structures are continuously becoming more complex as engineers continue to push the limits. Power distribution is one of these major concerns and can become increasingly difficult when pushing boundaries.
