Hook Up Lead Wire E-Beam
Demanding environmental conditions calls for dual serving Hook Up E-Beam Lead Wire, which can perform in both wet and dry locations. This is because it is designed with creep resistant copper conductors which are insulated with cross linked Polyethylene (XLPE) for maximum protection. It is deployed in power lines with a voltage rating of 600 volts at an operational temperature of 150 degrees Celsius.
The copper conductors have approximately 19 or 105 number of strands, improving the flexibility of this cable. They are tinned for good electrical conductivity and to boost the service life of the cable. Tinning involves coating the surfaces of the copper conductors with a thin film of tin. It protects the conductors from corrosive chemicals, increasing the durability of the cable. Flexible copper conductors are not labor intensive as they require less energy to lift and move around.
a) CSA CL 1503
b) CSA FT-1 and FT-2
c) UL Standard 758
Cross linked polyethylene is a thermoplastic and thermosetting polymer, which can perform in both wet and dry climatic conditions with temperatures not exceeding 105 degrees Celsius without tearing. It measures 0.030 inches thick and mainly keeps the cable safe from the punishing environmental conditions such as flames, moisture, strong sunlight radiations, abrasions or any other deformations. XLPE is color coded for identification.

Frequently Asked Questions- Hook Up Lead Wire E-BEAM?
Are there any special instructions I should follow when using Hook Up Lead Wire E-BEAM?
Yes, all cables have specifications and ratings that are designed to ensure optimal performance in applications and operations they have been designed to be installed. Hook Up Lead Wire E-BEAM has special requirements when installing them. You should ensure that you do not exceed the temperature rating for the specific wire. This wire is designed to work in applications that do not exhibit more than 150 degrees Celsius. As for the voltage rating, it stands at 600 volts, so make sure you don’t exceed these requirements.
How do I Identify Hook Up Lead Wire E-BEAM?
One way to identity this wire is by looking at the color of the conductor strands. The outside later appears silvery or grayish, a color which is because of the tin coating on the copper material. The inner part looks coppery or reddish in color because it is made of copper. So, when you strip off the insulating material, look at the appearance of the color. You can also check the kind of insulation used on the wire. For Hook Up Lead Wire E-BEAM it has an insulation made of irradiated cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) that is color coded.
What are the approvals for the Hook Up Lead Wire E-BEAM?
This wire is approved for UL Standard 758 with a temperature rating of 150 degrees Celsius and voltage of 600V in Alternating Current (AC) and 750 V in Direct Current (DC). It has a CSA AWM rating of 150 degrees Celsius and voltage of 600 V. The industry approvals are CSA AWM I A/B, CL 1503, and UL Standard 758 - Styles 3271, 3289, 3321, and 3505. The wire is RoH compliant and has flame compliances such as CSA FT-1 & FT-2.
What are the special engineering qualities of Hook Up Lead Wire E-BEAM?
This is a high temperature, medium voltage wire. It is coated with tin metal to improve its thermal performance as well as the conductivity and reduce its level of corrosivity. The wire has an insulation material made of irradiated cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) that is flame retardant, resist abrasion, cut-through, as well as chemical damage. This insulation solves various problems that are experienced where PVC material is used. It therefore exceeds the capability of PVC insulation. It is also non-meltable.
I have different voltage ranges in my applications, are there solutions for that?
Yes, Hook Up Lead Wire E-BEAM comes in different constructions, especially the wall thickness. You can get a construction intended for 150 volts, another for 300 volts, and another for 600 volts. The wall thickness constructions will determine the level of voltage you should use the wire in, in your applications.
