It’s hard to purchase a product or go somewhere that wire isn’t involved or a main component. From things like home electrical wiring, toys, gadgets, and so much more, wiring is everywhere you look. Wires can have a multitude of purposes that require electricity to run through them in different amounts. This might mean sending out information, or a power source for an object, it all depends on what it’s being designed for. Likewise, houses are full of wiring that is responsible for powering anything that you plug in or that runs on electricity. This range would include everything from that light switch you’ve just turned on to the microwave that is heating up a meal for you, it all contains wires.

Wires are created by drawing a strand of metal through a dye, and when combined they can be used for different purposes. When it comes to electrical poles, much like the ones you see by cable lines and street lamps, these groups of wires are now known as cables and can produce and conduct a higher rate of electricity in them. Much like they have different purposes, they can also come in different shapes and sizes. In fact, in history wires were commonly used in the making of jewelry such as chains for necklaces. Wires can also consist of different types of elements such as iron, aluminum, nickel and so forth. These are generally found in your traditional telephone pole.

Not every metal can be used to make a wire however, as they require certain properties to be able to produce ductility. However, there are other metals that are great for use as they are highly resistant against melting which means they’re able to power higher running electrical circuits like those you might find in a power transformer and in some cases a vehicle such as a car, truck, plane and so forth that rely on electricity. As wires can be dangerous they are often finished off with some sort of insulation and oils, as well as a type of rubber or plastic material. These are often put in place to protect both manufacturers, those who are responsible for installation, and use of these products.

Not all wires are meant to work alone per say. In fact, when it comes to things like lightbulbs, the wire is stretched thin into something called a filament and then in turn when it’s plugged in to the socket which again, also contains wires of a different type, they’re able to conduct electricity from one source to another and thus the light bulb will turn on. With different types of wires, and different ways in which they are manufactured, this also means that the ways in which they work are different too. Any time a wire has been broken or no good, it’s unfortunately not always an easy fix. Some can be replaced with a simple part as in a light switch, but then there are one’s that may require an electrician.
