Belden Cable's Braidless and Glass Braid Silicone Rubber Hook-Up Wire is part of Allied Wire and Cable's extensive stock of Belden hook-up wire. Silicone rubber is a stable choice of insulation due to its vast temperature range and resistance to harsh environments, with or without the braid.
Braidless Silicone Hook-Up Wire has the added benefit of easier stripping, due to the lack of the glass braid. Belden UL 3212, UL 3213, and UL 3214 Hook-Up Wire are suitable for use in Class 155(F) or Class 180(H) applications and have 600V and 150°C ratings. Belden Wire also manufactures Belden UL 3135 Braidless Silicone Hook-Up Wire. It is also has a 600V voltage rating but carries a slightly higher temperature rating of 200°C. However, it is only suitable for use in enclosed systems.
Belden Silicone Rubber Hook-Up Wires with a Glass Braid have extra abrasion resistance. Belden manufactures these braids with lacquer to prevent any fraying. Silicone rubber insulation will strip cleanly in spite of the glass braid.
Belden's UL 3071, UL 3074, UL 3075, UL 3125, and UL 3126 Silicone Hook-Up Wire is able to perform in Class 130(B), 155(F), and 180(H) applications, as well as clothes dryers, stoves, motors, lighting fixtures, and therapeutic and electronic devices. It carries 600V and 200°C ratings, and also conforms to CSA Type SEW-2.
Belden's second Glass Braided Silicone Hook-Up Wire offering conforms to UL 3069, UL 3070, and UL 3101 depending on the part number. It is also suitable for use in the same high-temp applications as Belden's UL 3071, UL 3074, UL 3075, UL 3125, and UL 3126 Hook-Up Wire. These wires also have CSA Type SEWF-2 approval and 600V and 150°C ratings.
Belden UL 3123 Mercury Switch Wire is ideal for use in mercury switches where mechanical abuse is not a concern. It remains flexible at temperatures between 150°C and -55°C. These Belden hook-up wires feature a stranded tinned copper conductor and are ideal for applications up to 600V.
Belden's Test Prod Wire is available with a stranded tinned copper conductor and either PVC or silicone rubber insulation. These test wires have a 5000V rating and a maximum temperature of +80°C, except for Belden 9899. Belden 9899 has an even higher temperature rating of 90°C. Belden 9899 is the only one of these test prod wires to follow UL 1855 specifications.
