Allied Wire and Cable’s most requested type for Mil-W-16878 Hook-Up Wire

Our regularly requested military specifications of the M16878 Hook-Up Wire types are listed below. However, we offer MIL-Spec hook-up wire in several varieties for your specific needs. For each product, we ensure quality and dependability.

M16878/1 Type B

The M16878/1 Type B is built from stranded tinned copper and PVC Insulation with a NEMA temperature and voltage rating of -55°C to +105°C and 600 Volts, respectively. This enables the M16878/1 to perform appropriately for electronic equipment internal wiring and may meet UL 1061.

M16878/2 Type C

The M16878/2 Type C shares the same characteristics as Type B with a higher voltage rating of 1000 Volts. M6878/2 Type C works well for the internal wiring of computerized equipment, electronic boards, panels, etc. It may meet UL 1007 or UL 1569.

M16878/3 Type D

And finally, the M16878/3 Type D possesses the equivalent features as Type B and Type C with the highest voltage rating of 3000 Volts amongst the three Mil 16878 hook-up wire variations. It is also suitable for the internal wiring computerized equipment, electronic boards, panels, etc. and may meet UL 1011 or UL 1013.

M16878/4 Type E

The NEMA HP-3 or M16878/4 Type E. This may be UL 1213 listed. It is built with stranded silver-plated copper, a temperature and voltage rating of -60deg;C to +200 °C and 600 Volts, respectively. And a shielded and jacketed cable.

M16878/5 Type EE

The M16878/5 Type EE or NEMA HP-3 Type EE has the same features as the M16878/4 Type E, but with a higher voltage rating of 1000 Volts.

M16878/6 Type ET

And lastly, the M16878/6 Type ET. This is also known as NEMA HP-3 Type ET. It possesses the same features as the M16878/4 Type E and M16878/5 Type EE, but with the lowest voltage rating of 250 Volts.

PFTE Insulation

No compound provides better insulation on cables than the PFTE insulation. It offers the highest reliability, extraordinary thermal stability, and chemical protection. This ensures that our M16878 hook-up wires are excellent for high-temperature applications.

NEMA HP3, HP4, HP5, HP6, HP8

The NEMA HP/M16878 specification wire and cable will pass UL VW-1 Flame Test and defy severe operating environments. Its outstanding wire characteristics such as size, high-temp ratings, non-flammable materials, and resistance to chemicals. The NEMA HP3, HP4, HP5, HP6, HP8 variation hook-up wires are repeatedly used in military harness applications, power supply and internal wiring of computerized machinery in the aerospace, industrial, and other commercial markets. Please see NEMA ratings below.
