Hook-Up Wire

The hook-up wire from Allied Wire and Cable is an insulated conductor wire used in many electronic applications. It can be used in electronic equipment, automotive and marine applications, ovens, control panels, building construction, appliances, and many other open and primarily in low-current, low-voltage enclosed electronic applications. . If you need wiring for an enclosed piece of electronic equipment, there’s a good chance you need a hook-up wire. The wire is insulated using PVC, PTFE, and other materials. The hook-up wire consists of a single conductor (or solid wire), or multiple conductors (stranded wire), and can be bare or tinned. Hook-up wires vary in terms of conductors, jacket and insulation material, and voltage, so it’s important to consider the requirements of the application.

Lead Wire

Lead wire is formed by an electrical connection between two electronic components. Lead wire typically consists of a copper conductor that’s surrounded by electrical insulation.  The procedure of having bare copper wires stranded and then tinned facilitates wire stripping without re-twisting. Lead wire is used for a variety of applications such as lead anodes, lead buoy weights, and lead ballast. Lead wire is popular with the sportsman and hobbyist, being used for tying fishing flies, small castings such as lead bullet manufacture, and model car racing. Lead wire is also ideal for use as wiring materials in various types of precision devices. Lead wire possesses extremely small diameters and high straightness which enables wiring workability, wiring for moving parts requiring high strength, and insertion into small holes or small-diameter tubes which would be difficult with extra fine copper wires.
