SDI Cable | Single Double Insulated [ Read More ]
As an Electrician, you may be familiar with SDI Cable or Single Double Insulated Cable. This cable type is designed with an inner insulating layer and an outer jacket that provides additional insulation. SDI Cable is commonly used in various electrical applications, including power and lighting circuits, and is highly regarded for its durability and flexibility. At Sparky Direct, we offer a range of high-quality SDI Cables that meet Australian standards, ensuring that you can trust the performance and safety of our products.
SDI Cable is rated based on several factors, including its voltage rating, current-carrying capacity, and temperature rating. The voltage rating of the SDI Cable refers to the maximum voltage the cable can safely handle without breaking down or causing damage to the surrounding electrical components. On the other hand, current-carrying capacity refers to the maximum amount of electrical current that the cable can safely carry without overheating or causing a fire hazard. Temperature rating is another essential factor, as SDI Cable must withstand high temperatures without melting or degrading. The manufacturer specifies these ratings, and is often printed on the cable jacket to help electricians select the appropriate cable for their specific application.
Sparky Direct's SDI Cables are designed to meet specific Australian electrical codes and safety standards and come in various sizes, usually measured in gauge or cross-sectional area.
SDI Cables are colour-coded to identify their function. Our SDI cables have an external white protective sheath, with either a black inner sheath covering the wire commonly used for neutral or a red inner sheath covering the wire for the active conductor.
The correct installation and use of single double insulated cables are crucial for an electrical system's safety and proper functioning. A licensed electrician or a qualified electrical contractor should connect electrical wires to a power source.
