High Temperature Wire and Cable

High Temperature RigGalaxy supplies high temperature wire and cable to a variety of markets including commercial and military. Galaxy can supply various types of high temperature wires and cables, both stock and custom, in various AWG sizes, voltage ratings, compounds, shielding constructions, and conductor counts. Galaxy can also recommend the correct high temp wire / high temp cable for specific applications.

What is High Temperature Wire and High Temperature Cable?

High temperature wires and cables are designed and manufactured for a wide variety of high performance and demanding applications that are exposed to high heat. High temp wire / cable can be designed with insulation, shielding, and/or jacketing materials that can perform in temperatures up to 1,200°C.

High temperature wire and cable is designed and manufactured for a wide variety of high performance and demanding applications that are exposed to high heat. High temp wires and cables are typically are known to have a temperature rating above 125°C. High temp wires can be designed with insulation, shielding, and/or jacketing materials that can perform in temperatures up to 1,200°C.

FAQs about High Temperature Wire and Cable?

What factors determine the temperature rating for a wire / 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.
