Single Strand Wires

Single strand wires are electrical cables which usually composed of copper or another conductive substance. They are used in communication systems, electronics, and wiring.

Single Strand Wire

Single-strand wire consists of a length of metal wire, usually wrapped in a protective sheath. A single core wire is a single core wire with an insulator. It is available in small diameters. Single stand wire is easy to make such a cable and can be used where flexibility is not important eg. Panel wiring, breadboards, etc.
