The Copper Development Association (CDA) has released two free publications offering information on installing copper wire and using speciality cables to meet requirements and codes. Available at www.copper.org, Recommended Practices for Designing and Installing Copper Building Wire Systems examines various aspects of design, installation, and maintenance practices for copper conductors and wires. The topics include electrical system cost and efficiency, fire-resistive cable systems, and temperature effects on wiring systems. The second document, Speciality Cables, outlines the benefits of using speciality cables in certain applications. For example, mineral and polymer insulated cables are discussed in terms of commercial and industrial applications, or even for use in transportation vehicles. This guide will assist design professionals in specifying these cables.
