What does GXL wire stand for?

What does GXL wire stand for?

automotive primary wire
GXL wire is a thin wall, single-conductor automotive primary wire. It also features cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation and has a voltage rating of 50V. It also operates best in a temperature range of -51°C to +125°C. It is used primarily in engine compartments where high heat resistance is required.

What is the difference between SXL and GXL wire?

The main difference between these two wires is their insulation thickness. SXL wire has thicker insulation than GXL, so it is slightly more durable. However, GXL is more ideal for applications with limited space. (TXL wire has the thinnest wall of all automotive primary wires).

What type of wire is used in automotive?

The most typical type of wire used in most automotive applications is automotive cross-link wire and automotive primary wire. General Purpose High Temperature automotive wire is ideal for under-hood automotive wiring applications with hard-to-fit areas.

What is automotive primary wire?

Automotive primary wire is a general purpose wire for original equipment and replacement automotive applications. Smooth jacket surface ideal for pulling through corrugated loom or conduit. SAEJ1128-GPT. Excellent resistance to oil and flame. Single conductor, stranded, bare copper.

What is primary wire used for?

Primary Wire is the most commonly used general purpose wire for automotive wire connections and electrical projects. Primary Wire has a smooth surface, making it ideal for pulling through wire looms or other wiring management.

What is SGX wire?

SGX Wire. SGX wire has a single-stranded copper conductor with cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation. Our SGX cable comes in multiple different sizes as well as two colors, red and black. All gauges of SGX meet the requirements for SAE J-1127.

What is Thhn wire used for?

It’s designed with a specific insulation material, temperature rating, and condition of use for electrical wire and cable. Extremely popular as an inexpensive building wire, THHN wire serves its purpose admirably and can be used for wiring machine tools, control circuits, and certain appliances.

Is there a difference between automotive wire and house wire?

Automotive wire costs more because of the jacket & flexibility, which are not important in a house. The smaller strand sizing also provides greater compression in fittings & stronger connection strength.

What temp is Thhn wire good for?

THHN wire is approved for up to 600V and is listed by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), as rated for 90° C (194° F) in dry and 75° C (167° F) in wet environments. THHN wire comes with a dual rating: THHN / THWN, which means it’s appropriate for both dry and wet applications.

What is MTW wire used for?

Application. Type MTW/TEW is most often found in general purpose wiring circuits, for machine tool wiring and the internal wiring of appliances, such as control panels, wiring for refrigeration equipment, air-conditioning equipment, control wiring of machine tools, automatic washers, etc.
