Amanda Kole / Thursday, July 16, 2020 / Categories: WireMasters News, Product News Mil-Spec Wire & Cable | Back to the Basics With all the recent talk about connectors, it's time to revisit what originally made WireMasters famous – Mil-Spec Wire and Cable. WireMasters has provided high-quality wiring products to the aerospace and defense industries for more than 30 years! Mil-Spec hook-up wire, BMS specs, cables, custom wiring, GORE® Cables, shipboard, TE cables...the list is lengthy! Speaking of lengthy, with locations across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe, WireMasters has the globe covered with enough wire in stock to wrap around the circumference of the earth! With extensive inventory, wire processing services, and same-day shipping, WireMasters continues to be your source for Mil-Spec Wire & Cable. It has been a while since blogging about wiring options, so let's dive deeper into how WireMasters can help your electrical systems. Mil-Spec Hook-Up Wire Some of the most popular hook-up wire options fall under these specs: M22759 M81044 M16878 M81822 M81381 M25038 M5086 Utilized onboard commercial and military applications, these high-performance products can operate in harsh environments and are constructed with various conductors, insulations, sizes, weights, voltage, and temperature ratings. Small dimensions, lightweight, enhanced mechanical toughness, resistance to abrasion, impact, and liquids – WireMasters hook-up wire has you covered! Don't see your spec listed? WireMasters stocks plenty of other specs! Mil-Spec Cable Located aboard aircraft, military vehicles, avionics systems, or inside missiles, these cables are subjected to demanding environments that include high temperatures, abrasive material, and corrosive chemicals. Due to these circumstances, it's important to consider the components of your cable, making sure they can withstand operating conditions. Luckily, WireMasters has a variety of Mil-Spec cables with several conductors, shielding, insulation, and jacket options available to help withstand these conditions. Popular products in the Mil-Spec cable department are specs like: M27500 M3432 CO Cables M55021 M13486 M27072 Firezone Cables M85045 Fiber Optic Cables And MORE! Coaxial Cables - Mil-C-17/RG QPL manufactured for high temperatures, these radio frequency cables are used for data communications and stocked in a variety of constructions. These include flexible and semi-rigid, with solid and semisolid dielectric cores, and with single, dual and twin inner conductors. Filterline - M85485 | SAE AS85485 | 55FB T/E Connectivity Filterline is known as a radio frequency absorptive wire. As electronic systems on aircraft become increasingly advanced, EMI Protection is more important than ever. Filterline to the rescue! These cables contain an absorptive layer. Achieving maximum attenuation requires concentrating the electromagnetic fields in the absorptive layer. WireMasters is fortunate to work with the leading manufacturers Judd and TE Connectivity, who manufacture high-quality Filterline products. Installed often amongst various military and avionics systems, the spec is ideal for situations where: • Power & signal wires run • Limited space restricts or limits the use of braid coverage • Use of a filtered connector is prohibitive • Space and weight are at a premium CLICK HERE to learn more about Filterline! Data Cables As In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) and aerospace ethernet markets soar, data cables remain a hot topic of discussion! It's our job to enhance the passenger experience with cables that deliver the fastest bandwidth speeds with little to no noise. WireMasters works with top manufacturers such as W.L. Gore & Associates, Harbour Industries, TE Connectivity, Carlisle/ECS/Thermax, PIC, among others, to ensure we can supply and solve the issues involving data cables. Our goal is to help you select a data cable that increases your system's performance and provides flexibility, with designs that have weight and space-saving options in mind. What kind of data cable do you need? One pair, two pairs, four pairs, quadrax or other? GORE® Cables High-performance solutions by GORE® line WireMasters' shelves from ethernet, high-speed data cables, tethered drone cables, fiber optics, space cables, FireWire® Cables, and more!

As a premier manufacturer of wire and cable, TE has a team of trained engineers that help create the right product that balances the properties for fit, form, function, performance, and reliability. EN Wire & Cable EN products are constructed to AFAQ (French Association for Quality Assurance) EN 9100 certification quality system standards and sometimes known as Airbus and Eurocopter wire and cables. Falling within these specs are categories such as hook-up and airframe wires, coaxial cables, Twinax bus cables, quad Ethernet cables, optical cables, flight test cables, fire-resistant cables, power feeder cables, and some specialty cables. We can help you locate the EN product you are looking for under the European standards, and we have items in stock and ready-to-ship from our location in Gelnhausen, Germany! Specialty Wiring Some operating systems and customers require specialty and proprietary wire and cable options. Our WireMasters team has extensive knowledge in this department with stock on these items, help reading specific drawings, and can even construct custom cables to help spec them in on new projects! Perhaps you need a BMS Boeing part, a BO Bombardier cable, a Bell specification, Sikorsky product, or even an ITAR control cable. Look no farther, as our trained WireMasters team can help!
