Armoured cable is a type of power-conducting cable that is covered in a metal sheath. In most cases, it consists of a bundle of wires covered in a metal tube, which may be covered in a plastic insulation layer. While one particular cable type is properly known as armoured cable, the term is often used as a generic to refer to all power cables covered in metal. In reality, there are three basic forms of metal-covered cables, each with its own features.
The various types of metal-covered cable are made in a similar fashion. At the core of the cable is a wire bundle. These copper wires are covered in their own plastic insulation, keeping them separated from the metal cover and each other. Next comes the metal covering, which protects the wire bundle from physical impacts and wear. The metal is generally a long metal strip that winds around the cable; this gives the metal covering a corrugated, spring-like appearance.
