Difference between suspension and strain insulators

There are some difference between suspension and strain insulators in the light of insulator application, insulator installation and insulator mechanical strength.

Suspension insulators and strain insulators are the same insulator in material and construction, but according to insulator installation, there is still Difference between suspension and strain insulators.

Difference between suspension and strain insulators
◆ Suspension insulator forms suspension insulator strings
◆ Strain insulator forms strain insulator strings
◆ Suspension insulators are used for suspending conductors, usually installed vertical direction
◆ Strain insulators are usually installed horizontal directions and fixing conductors by strain clamp
◆ Strain insulators can be divided into single insulator strings and double insulator strings

According to insulator mechanical strength, Difference between suspension and strain insulators are that strain insulators mechanical strength is higher than suspension insulators.
