We are proud to announce the beta release of our UL wire specification search tool. Because the process of finding the exact wire for your application is often too complicated by the large number of wires available for numerous organizations, the UL wire search tool should ease the tedious search.
We are still in the process of cleaning up some of the data, but once we do, you will be able to search through the entire WireFacts.com database to find exactly the wire you need for your application. Expect this in the next couple of months!

During a recent SAE meeting, the topic was brought up regarding the standard voltage rating on much of aerospace wire currently available. As of right now, most of the wire is rated to 600volts, yet there is no test in the specifications to qualify wires to this level. This has not been much of a concern in the past, because most systems operated at 115V/208V. But, as the systems are starting to use high voltage for distribution through the aircraft and start pushing the rating for the wire, this can become more of a concern.
The SAE committee is forming a task group and will to investigate this issue further.
