Mil Spec UL AWM
Recognized Style 2343 or 2344 and CSA Certified AWM II A/B
National Wire & Cable Corp. manufactures a complete line of multiple conductor control cable. All conductors are stranded tinned copper with .015” wall of vinyl primary insulation for use up to 105°C per MIL-W-16878/2*. Insulated for 1000 volts working voltage. Color coded using 10 standard plus stripes on white per MIL-STD-681.
All conductors are planetary cabled and contra-helically laid for optimum flexibility, with a Mylar tape serve over cable bundle. Shielded cables have a tinned copper braid overall, of 90% coverage per MIL-C-7078 and braid angles below 40° for easy pushback
The outer jacket is black, abrasion-resistant 105°C vinyl meeting MIL-I-631 Type F. All materials are self-extinguishing and fungus resistant. Also available with Neoprene jacket as a custom product. Consult factory for details.
Insulated wires also meet U.L. Style 1007 or 1569 as appropriate for gauge.
Cables are U.L. STYLE 2343 or 2344, rated 80°C, and CSA CERTIFIED for 105°C.
U.L. and/or CSA certification furnished only when requested.
"NWC cables (in 16 to 12 gauge) are similar to NW series but utilize materials to qualify for CSA cetification for AWM II A/B 105ºC service
at 300 volts as well as styles 2343 and 2344.NWC cables are not stocked and are subject to minimum run quantities."
