Hook Up Lead Wire UL 1007/1569 MIL-W-16878
Hook up Lead Wire is a power distribution cable which is designed with an operational voltage rating at 300 volts, and a temperature rating at 105 degrees Celsius. It is made of soft copper wires which are insulated with the polyvinyl chloride. The cable is color coded and approved to comply with all the necessary requirements of International Laboratory.
The Hook up Lead Wire is available in different sizes from 24 AWG to 16 AWG, and 26 AWG to 12 AWG however, they all measure ten feet long. It is made of tinned solid or stranded copper conductors as per ASTM B8 and ASTM 33. Stranding improves the flexibility of this cable. Tinned copper conductors are oxidative resistant and will not succumb to corrosion by the chlorides and salts. Tinning eliminates friction build ups, offering free strip form the PVC insulation.

f) CSA Type SR-PVC (800C)
The Polyvinyl Chloride layer improves the service life of this cable as it provides protection to the cable from harsh environmental conditions, chemical and mechanical damages or any other deformations. PVC also keeps the handler safe from electric shocks since it is a non-conductor. It has a smooth surface which eliminates friction, and flexible enough to fold.

Frequently Asked Questions - Hook Up Lead Wire UL 1007/1569 MIL-W-16878
What specific instructions should I follow when installing Hook Up Lead Wire UL 1007/1569 MIL-W-16878?
When doing installation for Hook Up Lead Wire UL 1007/1569 MIL-W-16878, you need to avoid exceeding the temperature and voltage ranges. The wire is designed to perform well in temperatures of up to 105 degrees Celsius. If you are going to use it in applications that exhibit temperatures more than that, it may degrade fast and it could be a safety hazard. The voltage is also another element to observe. Don’t use the wire in voltages exceeding 300 volts.
How do I identify Hook Up Lead Wire UL 1007/1569 MIL-W-16878?
There are several things that can help you identify this wire. One is the material used to make the conductors. Hook Up Lead Wire UL 1007/1569 MIL-W-16878 is made of tinned copper. So, when you strip out the insulating material, you will find that the outer layer looks grayish or silvery, which is the color of the tin coating on the wire. If you look at the core part of the wire, you find that it is reddish or coppery, which is the color of copper metal. Another thing to check is the insulation material used on the wire. This wire is insulated using polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that is color coded.
What are the approvals for this wire?
Hook Up Lead Wire UL 1007/1569 MIL-W-16878 has numerous approvals and compliances. It meets temperature and voltage rating as defined by UL standards. It is rated as UL 1007, UL 1581: 80°C/300V and UL 1569: 105°C/300V standards. Among the industry approvals that this wire attains are such as UL AWM Style 1007 (80°C)/1569 (105°C) and UL Standard 758 - Styles 1007, 1569, & 1581. It also meets CSA standards including CSA Type SR-PVC (80°C), CSA TR64 (90°C), and CSA AWM I A/B (80°C/105°C).
How is Hook Up Lead Wire UL 1007/1569 MIL-W-16878 engineered for optimal performance?
This wire is coated with tin to improve its operating temperature and lower its ability to oxidize and corrode at high temperatures. It has been insulated using PVC material, which has higher fire retarding properties. PVC is also resistant to oxidative reactions. It is resistant to inorganic chemicals including oils, acid, and alkali.
