M16878/4 — Type E (NEMA HP3 Type E)

Our M16878/4 Type E hook-up wire passes the UL VW-1 Flame Test and will withstand harsh operating environments. The medium wall PTFE insulation in this hook-up wire and stranded silver-plated copper conductor of this mil-spec wire offer high reliability and excellent thermal stability. M16878/4 is non-toxic, safe for the environment, and has resistance to chemicals, ultra-violet radiation, and mold growth. This hook-up wire is ideal for use in harness applications, power supply lead wire, appliance wiring, and medical electronics. It is also suitable for use as the internal wiring of electrical equipment. Many of our M16878/4 cables are also UL-approved.
