As our dependence on technology increases by leaps and bounds, the demand for their accessories also keeps increasing. For instance we cannot imagine life without a cell phone which has become a necessity in the same way as water (well, to a certain extent). A few years ago these electronic devices were our want but now it has taken the shape of a need. Spending a day without the cell phone is like a day without breath or like without single drop of water. Nevertheless an electronic device is never complete without its accessories. The accessories of the electronic gadgets are as important as the gadget itself for the proper functioning of the electronic devices. One such important electronic accessory is the power cords that relay the signal from one place to the other.
In this age of instant gratification where life is all about technology we are so much enamored by the electronic gadgets that we find it difficult to get separated from them. It is virtually impossible to avoid being the clave of technology. Every day we awake to new innovations of technology that takes us by storm and we become glued like never before to our electronic devices. To stay in pace with the innovations of electronic gadgets, the accessories are designed in a way to complement with the sophistication involved in the gadgets. Power Cords are one such electronic accessory that is an extension of the gadget itself.
A power cord has the feature of connecting an appliance with a socket on the wall. The terms are generally used for cables using a power plug to connect to a single-phase alternating current power source at the local line voltage. Power cords come in normal and high-temperature variants, as well as various rated currents. The connectors have slightly different shapes to ensure that it is not possible to substitute a cable with a lower temperature or current rating, but that it is possible to use an over-rated cable. Cords also have different types of exterior jackets available to accommodate environmental variables such as moisture, temperature, oils, sunlight, flexibility, and heavy wear.
We could have used wireless mode of transfer of signals but there is loss of data by this method while a power cord helps in full data transfer and there is minimal loss. It is generally made of a material that is long lasting and even stronger than copper and more able to retain its transmission properties after physical stress such as weight strain, or even attack by rats and cockatoos. The fiber that is installed in a power cord is different from copper: in good quality coatings, inside ducts, or in the case of newer systems, encased entirely by electrical transmission wires.
As the world of technology endeavors to bring new innovations to the forefront, the demand for electronic accessories would also rise.
