NEMA HP supersedes the Mil-DTL-16878 specification.  While most of our part numbers still reflect the format of the older spec, the products certifications and test reports show both part numbers, clearing the way to order using either part number callout.  We offer a wide selection of these parts, which can be see here M16878 hook up wire. This specification covers general purpose unshielded wire with temperature ratings ranging from -65 to 260 degrees Celsius (°C), with potential rating from 250 to 5,000 volts root mean square (Vrms).  When using the NEMA HP/M16878 specification, the wire will pass UL VW-1 Flame Test and withstand harsh operating environments. Due to wire elements such as size, high-temp ratings, non-flammable materials, and resistance to chemicals the hook-up wire is often used in harness applications and internal wiring of electrical equipment.
