· Control panels

· Automobiles

· Ovens

What to Consider When Buying Hook-Up Wire

Hook-up wires come in different sizes and rated voltages. If you’re searching for hook-up wires, consider the following before you buy:

· Conductor-Related Specs:

o Material: The conductor material inside hook-up wires is often made of copper, which is the most commonly used conductor material. Copper resists corrosion and has a high thermal conductivity.

o Size: In the U.S., the size of a conductor is measured in American Wire Gauge (AWG). If the gauge number is high, the wire will have a small diameter. Wires with a thicker diameter can carry more current and have less resistance.

o Stranded or Solid Wires: Stranded conductors refers to a group/s of wires that are twisted together, making them more malleable than solid wires.

· Material: The jacket materials protects the wire and helps prevent current from leaking from the conductor. Jackets found on motor wires can be made from silicon rubber, teflon, and more.

· Voltage: The rated voltage of a hook-up wire plays a role in other aspects of its design, such as insulation thickness. If you’re thinking about applications in terms of voltage, generally anything requiring <1 kV is low voltage, while 1 to 36 kV and >36 kV are medium and high voltage, respectively. Hook-up wires are best for low-voltage operations.
