As the current carrying capacity is high compared to copper, extremely compact and lightweight systems become an option in electrical engineering.
We are pleased to offer Jordan a cost effective solution to substantially reduce transmission line losses and significantly increase current carrying capacity within their transmission and distribution systems.
Moreover, recognize that, as the cord gets longer, the electric current carrying capacity of the cord gets lower.
We believe our novel proprietary ACCC cable is superior to existing conventional conductor products of the same diameter in a number of key performance areas, including: Up to double the current carrying capacity of conventional cables; virtually eliminates high- temperature sag; uses conventional installation methods and tools; reduces construction costs on new lines by requiring fewer structures; may be retrofitted on existing structures to increase current capacity; non-corrosive core; eliminates bi-metallic corrosion; and reduces line losses, compared with same diameter conventional cables, at same operating temperatures.
As a side note, Mike has been running tests, performing analysis, studying conductor heating and is leading the development of a new IPC standard on current carrying capacity in printed circuits.
The large spring-loaded contact points assure a current carrying capacity of 15A.
In 2001, NIST researchers showed that magnetic substrates reduced the current carrying capacity of Y-Ba-Cu-O coated superconductor tapes when arranged in stacks of two or more layers.
