Introduction To Some Wire And Cable Products And Standards

UL758 AWM Electronic Wire Profile

Electronic Wire Product Range

Electronic wire as the world’s most widely used in 3C consumer electronics, home appliances, small appliances, and IT / AV products such as wire categories, deserves our special attention. At present, only the United States UL developed the relevant standard UL758 (Appliance WiringMaterial, referred to as AWM).
Generally contains single-core insulated wire, multi-core with sheathing, fiber optic, and multi-core wire with fiber optic as the insulated core. These wires can be used as internal wires for appliances, as external connections between appliances, and as cores in multi-core wires.

Electronic wire models are named with a four-digit and higher number, each model has its characteristics. And the finished product factory should choose the most appropriate wire according to their production needs, which can effectively reduce the design cost of the whole machine.

low medium high voltage power cable

The Main Classification is as Follows (For Reference)

1 series: thermoplastic single conductor. Such as 1007, 1015

2 series: thermoplastic multi-conductor. Such as 2464, 2468, 20276, 2835

3 series: thermoset single conductor. 3122, 3385, 3386

4 series: thermoset multi-conductor. 4009, 4019

5 series: Special wire. 5020, 5035

UL758 electronic wire for standard models is about 6000 models, and the technical specifications of each model are unified worldwide, the factory to identify this model, must fully comply with the requirements of UL.

Style Page – The Style Page defines the requirements applicable to a given AWM Style.

Cable Technical Standards Introduction

1 Standard Categories

Product standards as the main body, and are related to the basic standards, material standards, test method standards, test equipment testing method standards and general standards, and other categories.

Examples of basic standards: GB2900.10 Electrical Terminology

Example of the material standard: GB8815-2008 Soft PVC plastic for electric wire and cable

Example of test method standard: GB/T 4909 Bare wire test method

General standard example: GB2952 cable outer sheath.

2 Technical Standards System

Domestic standards system in order is the national standard (code GB), industry standards (such as JB), and enterprise standards (code QB). Encourage enterprises to compile enterprise standards that are stricter than the national standards.
