The terms cable and wire are often used interchangeably, although they are not synonymous. The differences result from their construction, purpose and – consequently – prices. When performing electrical installations inside the building, cheaper installation cables are more often used. External installation, on the other hand, is carried out using cables. A cable is a kind of wire, but with a wider application. It is characterized by tight and reinforced insulation, unlike a cable, which may or may not have it. Wires, even if insulated, are used in indoor installations, while cables – thanks to the tight and strong construction – they can also be laid in the ground and water. In the el12 store, you can find cables made for the entire range of applied voltages (they have a cross-section of up to 240 mm2), as well as cables with insulation made of solid materials (built for lower voltages - up to 6 kV). The thickest cables available have a cross-section of 10 mm2 and a maximum voltage of 750 V.
The El12 offer includes e.g. halogen-free power cables, for home installations, data transmission, specialist cables and wires, for converters, ICT, intercom, control, fire-resistant telecommunication cables, as well as fire alarm cables and others.
I'm sure you've already noticed that our offer includes a really wide range of products, ranging from copper wires, through overhead wires, to power or signal cables. However, that's not all! We tried to gather everything you need in one place, because the most important thing for us is customer satisfaction. As we have already mentioned, electrical cables are a kind of wire. They are distinguished by different lengths and properties. When choosing them, it is worth paying attention to the power they must provide to the device. In the case of power cables, it is also important to mark them – in our offer you will find e.g. YDYp 3x1.5 or 3x2.5 cable. In addition to it, we also offer, among others, a solar cable (4 mm2 or 6 mm2) used in photovoltaic installations for connections between solar panels. What else can you find in our assortment?
We focus on manufacturers of cables valued on the market, including m. on NKT, BITNER or TKD-POLSKA. If you have any questions, you can contact us and we will provide you with all the information.
