Conductor and insulator

Insulator and conductor is one part of electrical system. Insulator can be made of plastic, porcelain, polymer, wood and glass materials. Conductor is made from metal, such as iron and copper etc.

conductor and insulator


Insulator application
◆ Insulator is normally used on overhead lines to support and insulate cables, normally called electrical insulator.
◆ Insulator used to keep warm, such as clothes, generally called thermal insulator.
◆ Insulator used in substations and stations, called bus support insulator, station post insulator and standoff insulator

Conductor and insulator


Conductor application:
◆ Some conductor covered with insulator materials, used as cables
◆ Some conductor as normal type, such as semiconductor generally used in the testing equipment
◆ Conductor can use with polymer materials to reduce the melting point, for welding

Especially, more polymer insulators used in the transmission and distribution lines, substations and stations replacing the porcelain insulators. Superconductors are also popular used in ship and inventions.

Insulator and conductor is an important part of our lives, see every, we can see insulator and conductor made from different materials.
