Many times, it may happen that after having done some maintenance works to your house, you find yourself with electrical cables and you don’t know what to do with them. It is exactly for this reason, that we will give you some advice on how to properly dispose of electrical cables, who you should contact and especially how to get rid of them in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
The brand La Triveneta Cavi was the protagonist of the recent Winter Olympics in South Korea 2018 which ended about a year ago.
Thanks to our Dubai partner Cleveland Cable, 250 Km of H07RN-F cable, manufactured at our La Triveneta Cavi facilities, were used to supply power to the entire Winter Olympic sports complex in Pyeongchang County, 180 Km from the capital Seoul.
Cleveland Cable recently told us about the success of such a big operation, starting with an auction that required a single cable supplier. The winner was our H07RN-F: it is a cable with excellent flexibility and good resistance to abrasion and tearing; it is resistant to weathering, grease and oil. It can be used both indoors and outdoors for mobile laying and ensures functioning down to -40°C, which is very important as these are winter sports games where snow and ice are the main element.
After the production that took place quickly and smoothly, the containers of material traveled directly from Italy to Dubai, where our partners worked with skill and precision in order to assemble cables and connectors under the instructions of their customers. The customer’s orders were very restrictive not only in the design phase but also as regards timing and shipments. The work table, in fact, required Cleveland Cable to supply the cable in very precise quantities and timescales and in steps. Furthermore, the budget and the estimated costs have always been respected, meeting the satisfaction of the final customer and, above all, the perfect success of all the installations of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
La Triveneta Cavi is very proud to have supplied its own product, designed and manufactured entirely in Italy for the realization of this great work of international scope and that has given us great visibility and prestige in our industry. We congratulate our partner Cleveland Cable and we look forward to the next major projects that await us in the world.
Sometimes it may be necessary to extend the length of a household electrical cable. In fact, this may be very common. Although this may seem extremely simple on paper, it must be done with care and attention.
In addition to mechanical and electrical tests, cables are often also subjected to fire tests (the CPR Regulation is proof of this). The most common test is the flame retardancy. In fact, each cable sold must comply with certain resistance standards that vary according to the country of installation.
In the video we made at the laboratories of La Triveneta Cavi, we illustrate two ways to carry out the test, but according to different countries that require different requirements of the test: the one in force in the European Union, EN 60332-1-2 and the one used for North America, UL 2556.
Both have the same purpose but different methodology. In the European test EN 60332-1-2 the cable must be subjected to a continuous flame for a time determined according to the diameter of the cable. In the American test EN 60332-1-2 instead, the cable must undergo a series of cycles where the flame is applied and then removed.
Both cables tested have successfully passed the two tests; it is very interesting to visually observe the exceptional performance of the FG17, designed to withstand in these harsh conditions with a very low flame propagation.
The word domotics comes from the Latin domus (house) and the Greek ticos (a suffix that stands for automatic) and studies the ways and the technologies that together improve the quality of the life within a house.
Making an electrical system requires different skills: not only you need to know how to install a system, but also and above all, you need to know how to design and plan it.
We can discuss and disagree on what the energy of the future will be, even if the data, statistics and the road took all seem to lead toward a single direction. However, the experts and the highest authorities in the field agree on one point: coal and oil will pass the torch to other sources of energy.
Nowadays, the design of modern houses presents new essential elements such as home automation, systems that allow higher energy savings, controlled mechanical vacuum systems, alternative technologies for the production of electricity, the latest generation lighting systems and visible electrical cables.
