Armor-clad cables provide adequate protection and durability in the absence of conduits. In most cases, people are forced to use conduits in areas prone to external risks such as corrosion and cable abrasion. Thus, it is correct to say that an armored cable is suitable for use in hazard-prone areas.
A standard electrical cable is most likely to incur irreparable damage in areas exposed to moisture. A PVC armored cable is suitable for such an environment because it can withstand moisture exposure. Generally, it is advisable to use armor-clad cables in hazardous locations, including beneath stairwells, barns, and basements, to name a few.
These cables can guarantee maximum safety and durability, provided you choose the right type of cable. For high voltage applications, it would be best to go for an XLPE armored cable. It is also essential to remember that wires have varying current-carrying capacities depending on different factors including, their size, number of cores, and length. For example, a 6 mm 3 core armored cable with XLPE insulation can transmit up to 1000 volts. The same cannot be said about other variations of armor-glad electrical wires.
