MTWUL 1015連接導線之間的區別

張貼在週三,20141029日由 戴維·沃森



問:你能解釋的區別,如果有的話,MTWUL 1015電子線之間?

A.大多數肯定。UL1015是基於UL標準758電器佈線材料(AWM)Style的需求。其中Style Page有數以千計的電線規格,每種或多或少有其獨特的特點。AWM 1015是對於具有80,90或105℃的溫度額定值的單個導體線,600 Vac,750Vdc額定電壓等級,水平燃燒(Horizontal flame)試驗,與60℃或80℃的耐油選項(Optional)的規格。大多數AWM 1015線,你會發現在市場上是105℃。

機床線(MTW)是一個完全不同的UL標準的標題:UL標準1063.該標準涵蓋了電線電纜設計用於工業機器上使用。導體必須與PVC或PVC/Nylon尼龍和多芯電纜其絕緣必須與經過UL耐油 Res I測試的PVC外被(Jacket)。UL標準只允許22 AWG,以及較大的導體和有很多關於導體必須是如何絞合,什麼是適合撓曲細節,MTW電線和電纜承載600伏、90℃乾燥、60℃濕的溫度額定值。

在Alpha Wire產品中(也可能是最多電線電纜企業),我們將產品符合多個等級。例如我們的3070系列的電子線(Hook-Up Wire)同時攜帶UL AWM 1015和UL MTW評級(以及兩個CSA評級)。這使得在需要兩種類型的UL認證的應用程序中使用該產品。

The Difference between MTW and UL 1015 Hook-Up Wire

Posted on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 by Dave Watson

Dave Watson, Director of Engineering, also known as Alpha Wire's resident wire and cable expert was prompted with the question below regarding hook-up wire standard differences.  Check out Professor Watson's explanation!


Q. Can you explain the difference, if any, between MTW and UL 1015 Hook-Up wire?

A. Most certainly. UL 1015 is an Appliance Wiring Material (AWM) style that is based on the requirements of UL Standard 758, Appliance Wiring Materials. There are quite literally thousands of AWM styles, each more or less having its own unique set of characteristics. AWM 1015 is a very popular style for a single conductor wire that has an 80, 90 or 105°C temperature rating, a 600 Vac, 750 Vdc voltage rating, a Horizontal flame test rating, and an Optional 60 or 80°C Oil. Most AWM 1015 wires you'll find on the market are 105°C.

Machine Tool Wire (MTW) is the title of a completely different UL Standard: UL Standard 1063. This standard covers both wires and cables designed for use on industrial machines. Conductors must be insulated with PVC or PVC/Nylon and Multi-conductor cables must be jacketed with a PVC that passes the UL Oil Res I test. The UL Standard only allows 22 AWG and larger conductors and there are lots of details on how the conductor must be stranded and what is suitable for flexing, etc. MTW wires and cables carry a 600 Volt 90°C Dry, 60°C Wet, temperature rating.

In the case of Alpha Wire, and probably most wire and cable companies, we apply multiple ratings to our products. Our 3070 series of Hook-Up Wire carries both UL AWM 1015 and UL MTW ratings (as well as two CSA ratings). This allows this product to be used in applications that require either type of UL approval.

And that is really the heart of the matter. Standards are written with a particular application, or range of applications in view, so by understanding what Standard or Standards are applicable to your application you can have confidence that the product you are selecting is appropriate for your application.
