1283-2-133T-9 Machine Tool Wire
Machine tool wires (MTW) are wires that are designed to be suitable to wire machine tools, appliances, electrical panels, and other electrical equipment. All MTW cables use moisture- and heat-resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC) insulation.
The 1283-2-133T-9 MTW meets the specifications of the UL 1283 standard. Wires meeting this standard feature a bare or tinned copper conductor with white PVC insulation that can exceed the tests as established by the Underwriter's Laboratories and the National Electric Code. This wire has especially been recommended for use in uninterruptible power supply equipment in accord with guidance from the UL and CSA. It is also moisture resistant, and can pass the VW-1 flame test. 1283-2-133T-9 wire is suitable for wiring appliances, control cabinets, electronic circuits, machine tools, meters, switchboards, and transfomrers. UL 1283 is also approved for use in both internal and external wiring of appliances.
The 1283-2-133T MTW is a 2 AWG wire comprised of 133 strands of tinned copper insulated in a white PVC outer jacket. It is rated up to 90 degrees Celsius in air, and 60 degrees Celsius in oil. THe nominal insulation thickness is 0.060 inches, and the nominal outer diameter is 0.472. This wire also meets the CSA standards for TEW or AWM I A/B.
