Mil-DTL-M16878 Hook Up Wire (M16878) cannot be outdone by any other wire and cable distributor. If you need MIL-Spec Hook Up Wire, Allied Wire & Cable can help. We offer MIL-Spec hook up wire in several varieties for your specific needs. For each product, we ensure quality and dependability.

Allied Wire & Cable knows electrical wire, especially MIL-Spec wire. Our stock meets and exceeds industry standards. The hook up wire passes the UL VW-1 Flame Test and is used across a broad range of industries requiring a high temp wire that can also withstand harsh environments. Because of its size, non-flammable materials, and resistance to chemicals, typical uses for the MIL-Spec wire include harness applications for the military or aerospace industries. The wire may also be used for the internal wiring of electronic equipment.

All types of the MIL Spec cable have an excellent temperature range and voltage rating. They are constructed of a choice of insulations and conductors. Gauge sizes on the wire even run as small as 32. The wires are stocked in a variety of sizes and weights.
Our value added services are available for all three types of the military wire. The items may be striped, twisted, or cut and stripped for your convenience. Please contact an Allied Wire representative to help with your MIL-Spec wire customization questions.

M16878E hook up wire applications include military harnessing, power supply lead wire, appliance wiring, and medical electronics. M16878EE may be applied for electronic use in protected applications where high temperatures are encountered and is a highly reliable OEM product. M16878ET is used in aerospace, industrial, military, and many other commercial markets.
PTFE insulation for hook up and MIL-Spec wire has many advantages. In addition to its reliability, the insulation exhibits exceptional resistance to ultra-violet radiation, stress, chemicals, and mold growth. It is even non-toxic and biocompatible. PTFE coated hook up and MIL-Spec wire is suitable for a wide frequency range and has a superb flex-life. The insulation also allows for savings in both space and weight, compared to other insulation types for hook up wire and MIL-Spec wire. Please see our NEMA HP3 Nomenclature FAQs for more information on Hook Up wire.

Military specification or Mil-Spec

Military specification or Mil-Spec wire and cables are rigorously manufactured for the U.S Department of Defense standard. This ensures that the best quality mil-spec wires are built to meet all military defense and aerospace applications. Military specification includes generic purpose unshielded wire with temperature ratings ranging from -65 to 260 degrees Celsius (°C), with a potential rating from 250 to 3,000 volts root mean square (Vrms).
