Hookup & Equipment Wire

Hookup and equipment wires are usually insulated and flexible wiring. Used internally for electrical or electronic equipment, the sheathed cover of the wires is generally made from PVC.PVC is an important protection and insulation for cables where there is a connection to an electric main or power source.

What are hookup and equipment wires?

Hookup wires usually contain tin or copper, or the two are used in conjunction with one another in braid, solid or strands. Copper wire is an excellent conductor of electricity, and therefore copper is generally used in cables. A variance of copper is used in wires, such as tinned, nickel-plated or annealed.These types of wires come in a variety of colours. The choice of coloured casing allows for easy identification when using more than one cable at a time for internal wiring.

What are they used for?

Hook up wires or copper equipment wires as they are also known, are primarily used for low voltage applications. Hook up wire can be used in circuit boards, plugs, socket, computers, meters, auto-motives, and other electronics. Other applications range from household appliances to machinery.
