Hookup wire is a copper /tinned copper /nickel plated copper / nickel wire with a single insulated conductor that can be solid (single wire) or stranded (multiple finer strands bundled together to form a thicker gauge). This special type of copper wire is primarily used in low voltage, low current applications such as enclosed electronics. It is also used in automotive and marine applications, ovens, control panels, building construction, appliances, and many other open and closed environments. Because conductors, insulation materials, or voltage ratings can vary widely, it is important to understand how different hookups work with different products, components, and connections.

The benefits of connecting wires

Connecting wires are used in a wide variety of products, appliances and vehicles. Here are some advantages that are perfect for your project:

Compared to other metals, copper wire has superior thermal conductivity (second only to silver.

Due to its low reactivity grade, copper wire is also highly resistant to corrosion, reducing the need for expensive repeated replacements.

Ductility is another advantage of connecting wire; this means it can be easily shaped without breaking. This is especially important in electrical setups that require wires to wrap around corners.

Cables that provide performance

Whether you choose stranded or solid wire, both options are guaranteed to meet the standards and ratings listed in our product descriptions.

The benefit of stranded wire is that it is more flexible than solid wire and can withstand frequent bending. On the other hand, the rigidity of the solid wire makes it highly resistant to weather, extreme environmental conditions and frequent movement. Solid wire is typically used in outdoor applications.
