ECCC-AT, Earthing Copper Coated Conductor Anti Theft
Rigid copper wire strands, in aluminium/ steel colour, for earthing purposes and maximum protection of your electrical installation.
La Farga has developed ECCC (Earthing Copper Coated Conductor), a low loss conductor for earthing connections available through Cx3 technology.
Cx3 technology opens up new properties for the conductor such as a different colour or dielectric behaviour.
These days, despite its excellent properties, copper is being replaced by other, less efficient materials. This is due to the fact that copper is made attractive by its high intrinsic value as a raw material.
Other materials such as copper clad steel (CCS) constitute an attempt to solve the problem by making the cable less susceptible to theft and drastically decreasing the value of recycled copper; however, since these are copper-coated, damage takes place regardless.
The appearance of both copper and aluminium provides security in terms of storage, installation and maintenance by the installers, retaining the superior performance and properties of copper.
