Battery cables market, especially in the automotive application, is facing a big change in row material moving from a copper to aluminium. Today, aluminium represents a better option inasmuch as its price is stable and reduces the weight of the electrical distribution system and harnesses. Although, aluminium wire is less fault-tolerant than copper wire; today aluminium battery cables are manufactured for the mass production, too.
Automotive battery cables must be resistant to heat, acid and oil and are mainly divided in:
- Ground Battery Cable
- Starter Battery Cable
The main characteristics of these cables are:
- Good abrasion and cut resistance
- Excellent flexibility even at low temperatures
- Long life
- Withstand to extreme environment including dust, harsh, vibration and chemical agents
