Technical Data

  • Cable Flame Test– A unique test standard whereby a Fire Propagation Index (FPI) is determined based upon a combination heat release and ignition test. The FPI is used to determine a 1, 2, or 3 Group rating. The lower Group ratings are the better performing cables.
  • Metric Conversion Chart AWG/Metric– This table gives closest equivalent size cross references between metric and American wire sizes
  • NEC & CSA signations– This table gives you the National Electrical Code and the Canadian Electrical Code which the CSA produces
  • Material Temperature Comparisons– The temperature ratings of wire and cable products are key operating parameters. The use of wire outside their design temperature range can result in failures in the wire
  • Thermoplastic Properties– Properties of thermoplastic materials for insulation and jacketing
  • Jacket & Thermoset Insulation Materials Comparison Chart-Based on the requirements, the best jacketing and insulating material for the application will be selected using this table. The selection may involve examination of many different performance properties.
