FAQs about High Temperature Cable and Wire?
What factors determine the temperature rating for a cable?
In addition to the temperature rating of the compound, it is important to consider the plating of the conductor. Tin-plated copper will not achieve as high a temperature rating as silver-plated or nickel-plated conductors.
Can a cable be made with both low temperature and high temperature compounds?
Yes, however, the cable will ultimately only be able to be rated as high as the low temperature material allows.
