Question: What does UL1007 mean?

UL1007 covers the specifications for single core PVC insulated cables and wires (frequently referred to as “hook-up wire”) used in the internal wiring of electronic and electrical equipment. This range is UL rated Appliance Wiring Material (AWM Wire).

What is TR 64 wire?

UL 1007 - CSA TR-64 UL1007 is a PVC-insulated hook-up wire. It features a single solid or stranded conductor made from tinned copper. This UL-approved hook-up wire is ideal for use as internal wiring in appliances, electronic equipment, and electrical equipment. We offer UL1007 wire in gauge sizes 10 AWG to 30 AWG.

What is hook-up wire used for?

Hook-up wire is an insulated conductor wire used in many electronic applications. It can be used in electronic equipment, automotive and marine applications, ovens, control panels, building construction, appliances, and many other open and enclosed electronic applications.

What is UL voltage rating?

UL 1277, the standard for electrical power and control tray cable, was recently updated, allowing manufacturers with UL approved tray cable to market their product as 600V/1kV rated. This test requires each insulated conductor in finished cable to withstand a specified voltage range for one minute without breakdown.

What is wire UL?

Underwriters Laboratory (UL) is a third-party testing laboratory that certifies and tests products. UL assigns a different style number for each approved AWM construction and creates a style page that lists a few specifications, such as gauge size range, insulation material, temperature rating and voltage rating.

What is tr64?

TR-64 is manufactured using solid or stranded soft drawn, annealed tinned copper conductors. with a FT1 and/or VW-1 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) Insulation applied directly over the conductors.

What UL 1569?

Style 1569. Single Conductor with extruded insulation. Rating. 80, 90 or 105 deg C, 300 Vac, Horizontal flame.

What is the difference between MTW and Thhn wire?

MTW has bare or tinned copper conductors, whereas THHN is available in bare copper or aluminum. If an aluminum conductor is something you would prefer based on price or weight, consider choosing THHN. If you prefer the superior conductivity of a copper conductor, both options are right for you.

What is UL temperature rating?

A. This is shorthand for the temperature ratings that UL and the NEC use to make sure that connectors, electrical devices, wire and plastic insulation do not get hotter than intended in use. It is all about making sure that no part gets hotter than it should in the interests of longevity, safety and fire prevention.

What does UL2464 mean?

Underwriters Laboratories The UL2464 style mark (also often written as AWM 2464) indicates that this is a wire generally designated as an external interconnect cable. UL stands for Underwriters Laboratories, an internationally recognized safety certification lab.

What is Class C wire?

CLASS C: Power cables where more flexible stranding than Class B is desired. CLASS D: Power cables where extra flexible stranding is desired.

How many UL standards are there?

With over a century of experience in the development of more than 1,500 Standards, UL is an accredited standards developer in the US and Canada. In extending its global public safety mission, UL Standards partners with national standards bodies in countries around the world to build a safer, more sustainable world.

What UL 1015?

UL 1015 is an Appliance Wiring Material (AWM) style. Machine Tool Wire (MTW) is a completely different UL Standard that covers both wires and cables designed for use on industrial machines. This allows the hook-up wire to be used in applications that required either type of UL approval.

What is ul83?

Thermoplastic-Insulated Wires and Cables. UL 83. 1 Scope. 1.1 This Standard specifies the requirements for 600 V, single-conductor, thermoplastic-insulated wires and cables, for use as follows: In Canada, in accordance with CSA C22.

What is TFFN stand for?

Thermoplastic Flexible Fixture Nylon wire What is TFFN Wire? TFFN wire, or Thermoplastic Flexible Fixture Nylon wire, is a building wire with the same applications as THHN Wire. This wire is also made of thermoplastic materials.

Is Thhn the same as THWN?

THHN stands for Thermoplastic High Heat-resistant Nylon-coated. THWN wire is the same, but the W stands for water-resistant. THWN has a maximum temperature of 90°C in dry and wet locations, whereas THHN wire can only be used in temperatures as high as 75°C in wet locations.

What is UL yellow card?

A Yellow Card is issued when polymeric materials have successfully undergone our testing procedures and received a UL Recognized Component Mark. Our tests include: Ignition and burning characteristics from thermal and electrical sources. Electrical, physical and mechanical characteristics.

What does the abbreviation UL stand for?

Underwriters Laboratories UL stands for Underwriters Laboratories, an organization that has been around for more than 100 years. If you visit the UL Web site at, you can find the following description: UL is a world leader in product safety testing and certification.
