General Purpose

New England Wire’s general purpose power leads and flexible interconnect wires can be manufactured using a range of wire gauge sizes, strand constructions, conductor materials, wall thicknesses, shields and jackets.

Stranding Choices

  • Flexible – Stranded Conductors with 7 to 66 ends with a strand size between 30 -36 AWG
  • Extra Flexible – Manufactured in multiple bunching and cabling operations, extra flexible conductors are made of single end stranding between 38 and 44 AWG
  • Ultra Flexible – miniature conductors stranded out of 46 – 52 AWG single end wire

Extra Flexible Insulated Power Cables

Finely stranded cables with soft durable materials to reduce cable stiffness without compromising mechanical strength.

  • PVC – A durable and inexpensive material commonly used in flame retardant and medical grades
  • TPE – A large group of materials that includes both thermoplastic – thermoset blends and co-polymers.  Increasingly used as a flexible, “green” alternative to PVC
  • Polyurethane – A strong, elastic thermoplastic with superior cut through and abrasion resistance, polyurethane is an excellent choice for conductors that will see a large amount of physical wear
  • Silicone Rubber – An extremely flexible thermoset material with excellent temperature characteristics
