Isolation, électrique

Electrical energy can be transported by electrical conductors virtually without limit. However, this can only succeed if the conductors are insulated in order to prevent premature energy transfer. This applies to high voltage overland power lines as well as for domestic cable installations. All conductive parts and live
wiring in power tools must be insulated to ensure that no life-threatening current can reach the operator in case of malfunction.
