Fatigue Testing of Wire with Electrical Conductance Apparatus

Electrical wires are the most common form of interconnects between electrical devices. Wires are usually made of copper (and sometimes aluminum) due to copper’s ability to conduct electricity very well, ability to bend, and its cheap cost. Outside of material, wires can also be assembled in different ways. Wires can come be obtained in different sizes, usually denoted by gauges. As the wire diameter increases, the wire gauge decreases. Longevity of the wire will change with wire gauge. The difference in longevity can be compared by conducting a reciprocating linear test with the Nanovea Tribometer to simulate fatigue.
