22 Three-conductor (triplex) self-supporting cable with polyethylene insulation commonly used by electric utilities for low-voltage power-distribution secondaries and services. 23 Insulated power cable showing various layers of jacketing, shielding, and insulation. ) Nonmetallic-sheathed cable—which is an assembly of two or more insulated conductors having an outer sheath of moisture-resistant, flame-retardant, nonmetallic material—is usually used for housing wiring where the voltage is 120 or 240 volts.

20 The main printed circuit board installed and wired in a solid-state meter. 21 The relative position of the main printed circuit board in a solid-state meter. ) Conductors The pipes merely furnish the path for the flowing water in the water circuit. We would say that the hole in the pipe was the path of the water if we were to be more exact. We know the water does not flow through the iron shell of the pipe. It actually passes through the opening in the pipe inside the iron shell. The hole or opening in the pipe may then be directly compared to the electric wire.

All chapters in this Twelfth Edition have been revised where necessary to be consistent with the newest equipment, techniques, and procedures. A special effort was made to present all discussions clearly and in simple language. As in previous editions, a large number of illustrations showing the construction and maintenance processes are provided to assist the reader in a better understanding of the text. The illustrations clarify many details that would require additional words to express. Many of the photographs were taken specifically for use in this edition.
