  1. Sustainable Energy

    Post by : Sycor Marketing

    One of the largest concerns that countries around the world are facing today is the climate crisis. In the wake of this issue, many of the world's leaders have promised to fight climate change as much as possible. With the signing of the Paris climate agreement in 2016, countries like Canada, Denmark, England, France, Sweeden, Germany, Switzerland and many more have promised to work towards fully sustainable energy within the next 50 years. In this blog, Sycor will discuss the different types of sustainable energy currently available, what is required to make these applications a reality, and the limitations to the overall capabilities.

  2. Product Comparison: RW90 vs T90

    Post by : Sycor Marketing

    In this blog, we will break down two different building wires and how each of these differentiates from one another. The building wires that we'll be looking into are the popular CSA T90 & CSA RW90. Both of these constructions are designated building wires which are able to be applied to various applications within the commercial, manufacturing and other industrial markets.

    The Race to Space & The Future of the Aerospace Industry

    Mil-Spec is a popular hook-up wiring designation, and a popular application for these products is within aircraft and now more than ever space equipment. With the race to space underway between some of the world's tech giants, we'll begin to see new space discoveries and more advanced technologies emerge over the next decade. With space quickly becoming more accessible for entertainment and commercial purposes, the future of space and its potential applications is quickly evolving.

  4. What is ROHS?

    Post by : Sycor Marketing

    There are a number of different certifications for wire and cable, but these certifications aren't like most industries. The approved wire and cable are unique in the regard that there are specific sets of rules that apply for each approval, like how a mil-spec certified wire cannot be certified by UL or CSA. One of the more unusual approvals that often gets overlooked and the certification that'll be broken down is ROHS, also known as Restriction of Certain Hazardous Substances.

  5. Using The Correct Wire & Cable Gauge Sizes

    Post by : Sycor Marketing

    The Difference Between Cables, Wires & Conductors

    Wire: A wire is defined as a single rod of metal with a small ratio of diameter to length.

    Conductor: A Conductor is an uninsulated piece of metal suitable for carrying an electric current. There are different types of conductors, and they're known as solid conductors and stranded conductors. The stranded wires are made up of a group of smaller solid strands. These wires are twisted together to create a more flexible stranded conductor. For example, cables may be referred to as 7/36 wire in 26 AWG. The conductors have seven strands of 36 gauge wire, all twisted together to make the 28 AWG conductor.

    Cable: A cable is either a single-stranded conductor or a combination of conductors insulated from one another (multi-conductor cable).
