Hook Up Wire UL 1283/1284 BC
Hook up Wires are designed to help in power distributions in demanding environmental conditions. They are meant to perform in both wet and dry locations with an operational temperature rating of 105 degrees Celsius. For this reason, such Hook up Wires are made of sturdy materials to withstand the punishing environmental conditions like mechanical deformations, adverse climatic changes and industrial chemicals.
This cable has a wide conductor size as from 6 AWG to 750 MCM in accordance with American Wire Gauge. It is made of bare copper conductors which are stranded as per ASTM B8. These conductors are soft, flexible and lightweight affirming the flexibility of the cable. Flexible Hook Wires are easy to install since you can fold and bend them without using excessive effort. Copper is well known for its good electrical conductivity; this is because it has good tensile strength, thermal conductivity and creep resistance. Therefore, it is no doubt that this Hook up Wire will ensure you a smooth power transmission in your wiring systems for a longer time.

Frequently Asked Questions - Hook Up Wire UL 1283/1284 BC
What are the special instruction I need to follow when using Hook Up Wire UL 1283/1284 BC?
When using these wires, do not exceed the rated voltage and temperature ranges. Hook up Wires UL 1283/1284 BC are intended for use in operations of up to 105 degrees Celsius and voltage of up to 1000 volts. You may realize that different versions of the wires with different approvals have different temperature and voltage approvals. For example, wires approved for UL 10269 standards are rated 105 degrees Celsius and 1000 volts while those approved for UL 1283/1284/1232/1346/1339/BC-5W2 standards are rated 105 degrees Celsius and 600 volts. Whichever the case, make sure you have the right wires for the right applications. Don’t exceed the specified voltage and temperature ratings.
How do I identify Hook Up Wire UL 1283/1284 BC?
These wires are made of stranded bare copper material. Therefore, when you strip out the insulation, you will find that they look coppery or reddish, the copper of copper material. They come in strands. The insulation material you find in these wires is PVC.
What are the approvals for the Hook Up Wire UL 1283/1284 BC?
These wires have different approvals including meeting CSA AWM I A/B & TEW: 105°C/600V, UL MTW: 90°C/600V, UL 10269: 105°C/1000V, and UL 1283/1284/1232/1346/1339/BC-5W2: 105°C/600V. The wires also meet flame compliances including UL VW-1 and CSA FT-1. Other standards are SAE J1127 Type SGT (6 AWG - 4/0 AWG) and UL Standard 1426 - BC-5W2: 6 AWG - 4/0 AWG
In what applications can I use the wires?
You can use these wires for wiring machine tools, switchboards, electronic circuits, appliances, and control cabinets.
How are Hook Up Wire UL 1283/1284 BC engineered to perform well?
These wires feature a PVC insulation, which makes them resistant to moisture, oil, and heat.
