Frequently Asked Questions- Hook Up Lead Wire AWM 3499
What special instructions do I need to follow when installing Hook Up Lead Wire AWM 3499?
If you want to install Hook Up Lead Wire AWM 3499, there are instructions you need to follow to ensure safety and performance of the wire. First, you need to ensure that you use the wire within the specified temperature range. Your installation should not exhibit temperatures more than 150 degrees Celsius. You also want to make sure that use it within the desired voltage. UL 3499 is a high temperature-high voltage wire. The voltage rating is 7500V. Do not exceed the temperature and voltage rating in whichever applications you use the wire.
How do I identify Hook Up Lead Wire AWM 3499?
When you strip out the insulation material, the wire looks like silver on the outside but the inside has a reddish or coppery color which is that of copper. The silvery color is that of tin, which is coated on the copper wire. You may also want to look at the insulation which is made of EPDM material.
What are the approvals for the UL AWM 3499 Wire?
This wire is approved for UL AWM Style 3499 and has a voltage rating of 7500V and temperature rating of 150 degrees Celsius.
Is there any kind of special engineering for the wire to perform better?
Yes, AWM 3499 is engineered for optimal performance in high temperatures and high voltage applications. It has a tin coating which allows it to have greater thermal performance and conductivity. It is also insulated with cross-linked ethylene-propylene diene elastomer initialized as EPDM that makes it to be more pliable when used in low temperature applications. The EPDM insulation ensures corona resistance, weather resistance, heat resistance, and high abrasion resistance. This insulation is able to endure longer bake cycles that are required in demanding applications.
