  Electrical conductor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A conductor of a given material and volume (length x cross-sectional area) has no real limit to the current it can carry without being destroyed as long as the heat generated by the resistive loss is removed and the conductor can withstand the radial forces.
In United States, conductors are measured by American wire gauge for smaller ones, and circular mils for larger ones.
Conductors are usually surrounded by and/or supported by insulators and the insulation determines the maximum voltage that can be applied to any given conductor.

 Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Conductor
Most conductors feel that the baton is very important for the visibility and clarity of the beat.) By convention, certain beat patterns are used to indicate certain metrical patterns, with the first beat of each measure always shown by a downward stroke, or “downbeat,” and the last beat shown by an upward stroke.
With a good conductor — and a good orchestra — the quality of sound the orchestra produces is influenced by the qualities of the beat, by the character of the conductor's physical gestures.
A conductor does a large part of his or her work — perhaps the largest part — away from the public eye, in study and in rehearsal.

 Calculations of a Conductor's Ampacity
Any conductor found in a conduit that is not a true neutral and as long as that conductor is not a bare or green equipment grounding conductor.
The voltage of those two ungrounded conductors being served by a neutral conductor must be at least 200 volts or more on a multi-wire feeder or branch circuit made up of two ungrounded [hot] conductors from different phases.
When counting current carrying conductors you do not need to count in your de-ration of the ampacity of a conductor, any white neutral conductors, that are carrying only the unbalanced load of two hot conductors of the same two pole circuit and installed in the same raceway.

 How to Cook a Conductor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
When the flames have died down to a medium inferno, place your Conductor on top of your orchestra (they won't mind as they are used to it) until it is well tanned, the hair turns back to its natural color and all of the fat has dripped out.
WARNING: Due to environmental toxins present in conductor feeding areas, such as heavy metals, oily residue from intensive PR machinery manufacture, and extraordinarily high concentrations of E.coli, cryptosporidium, and other hazardous organisms associated with animal wastes, the Departments for Conductor Decimation (DCD) recommend that the consumption of conductors be limited to one per season.
Overconsumption of conductors has been implicated in the epidemiology of a virulent condition known as "Bataan fever." Symptoms of this disorder include swelling of the brain, spasms in the extremities, delusions of competence, auditory hallucinations and excessive longevity.

 Conductors and Insulators
Copper is considered to be a conductor because it “conducts”; the electron current or flow of electrons fairly easily.
Copper is still the most popular material used for wires because it is a very good conductor of electrical current and it is fairly inexpensive when compared to gold and silver.
Conductors have a very low resistance to electrical current while insulators have a very high resistance to electrical current.

 Markand Thakar, Conductor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The first is ninety-plus percent of the job: the conductor must come to the ensemble with a conscious understanding of how the fl marks on the page can be brought into sounds in such a way that they create the most magical experience.
In rehearsal the conductor must be constantly aware of whether or not the sounds are the most magical possible.
The conductor who has a conscious understanding of how the sounds can unfold for the most celestial, magical, exalting experience, who hears the totality of the sounds, and who is physically free to respond synchronously with those sounds, is most effective indeed.

The Comas provide a masterpiece in their third album "Conductor." Though it's reminiscent of the Shins and Modest Mouse, the Comas prove that they are the only ones on their private planet.
The DVD is labeled as Conductor: The Movie, possibly indicating that this is a concept album, but the movie doesn't really seem to have a point except to serve as a visual while you listen to the album.
What it boils down to is that Conductor is a great CD to relax to or have playing in the background, but The Comas fell into the inconsistency trap with this album and it kept the band from making something epic.

Data Conductor generates the native code (SQL, PL/SQL, Transact-SQL, bulk loaders, etc.) needed to load data directly from the sources into the data warehouse (or other target) server, and enable data transformations to be executed in bulk mode by the target RDBMS.
Already a best-of-breed ETL solution when used on its own, Sunopsis Data Conductor is also the keystone of the Sunopsis Active Integration Platform, a unified infrastructure to streamline data and application integration projects.
Because Data Conductor eliminates both the acquisition and maintenance of a dedicated ETL server and a proprietary ETL engine, it dramatically reduces both the initial and ongoing costs, while ensuring the highest level of performance.
