Automotive Wire TWP
This is among the extensive stock of cables used in automotive applications. These cables are relatively tough and can withstand any type of demanding environment since its application areas tend to be harsh. The TWP wire is available in various sizes mostly from 10 AWG to 24 AWG it just depends with the weight of your application. This cable can also operate in a wide range of temperatures mostly from -400C up to 800C in both cold and hot temperatures respectively.
The conductor is made of bare copper concentrically stranded in rope lay. The stranded increases the cables flex life and it can easily be installed in constricted areas. This stranding also enables the cable to carry more current with minimal resistance and without overheating the cable. The copper conductor is also durable and is easy recyclable in case it wears out. It’s also versatile which means it can be put to other uses rather than its intended purpose.
The insulation protects the conductor from damage, but also protects the cable operators from electric shock which may be caused by direct contact with the live wire. The insulation of this cable is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which is lead free. The insulation is also color coded to enable easy identification of the cable depending on the size.
Industrial ratings and approvals
This cable has the following certifications since it has been tested by international agencies in the field of auto motives;
• SAE J-1128
• Ford ESB-M1L123A
• Chrysler MS-5919
It is used in applications not exceeding 50 volts in motor vehicles.
Frequently Asked Questions – Automotive Wire TWP
When doing installations, what special instructions do I need to follow?
TWP primary automotive wire requires specific temperatures and voltage. So, when doing installation ensure that the temperatures do not exceed 105 degrees Celsius and that the voltage does not exceed 60 volts for direct current and 25 volts for alternating current. Should you exceed these, you may risk degrading the performance of the wire.
How can identify TWP wire?
You can identify this by stripping off the insulation to see how the conductor looks it. You will find that it appears coppery or reddish in color. You can also check the insulation which is made of PVC material.
What are the certifications for TWP wire?
This wire has met many standards including the Ford ESB-MIL 120A, Chrysler MS-7889, and SAE J-1128.
How is this wire engineered for optimal performance?
One feature that makes this wire perform well is the insulation material. The PVC materials gives it protection against damaging elements and substances. This wire has a thin wall which makes it easy to install in the hard to reach areas or where small diameters as well as weight are required.
Where can I use TWP wire?
It is a common wire for automotive wiring but you can also use it on other related services.
