Alpha Wire thin light wires vie with PTFE for high-rel connections

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-08-01
Alpha Wire’s new ThermoThin Hook-Up Wire, now available from Aerco, delivers 600V performance from -150 to +300°C, and is intended for applications where premium performance must be matched with space and weight savings.

Potential applications are foreseen in medical devices, semiconductor production, geothermal energy generation, energy production, military equipment and the oil and gas industry.

“For military use, ThermoThin is suitable for applications where MIL-W-16878/4/5/6 type wires have been specified, but where a Mil Spec rating is not actually required,” said Aerco.

The ECA fluoropolymer insulation is said, by Aerco, to combines the beneficial properties of perfluoroplastics while maintaining operational performance under extreme temperatures and harsh environmental conditions, with similar characteristics to PTFE hookup wire but in a thinner and lighter form.

It is UV, chemical and water resistant, with abrasion resistance comparable to PTFE.

“One stark difference between PTFE and the ECA material is ThermoThin’s ability to run longer continuous lengths. 1,000 feet of PTFE typically consists of three separate pieces while ThermoThin can run for 5,000 continuous feet, said Aerco.

The nickel-plated copper conductor come in 36 to 16AWG approved to UL AWM 11540, UL 80°C Oil, UL Gas Res, horizontal flame and CE approved.

36-32 AWG sizes are CE approved.

It has Reach approval and is RoHS compliant.

Available colours are black, white, red, blue, green, orange, yellow, brown, violet, and slate – with more on request.
