Mil-Spec Wire & Cable
Mil-Spec wire and cable is manufactured in accordance with military specifications. It is designed for use in highly demanding applications, particularly in the aviation and aerospace industries, where extremely harsh operating conditions (i.e., high temperatures, pressures, and/or frequencies) are beyond what commercial wire and cable are designed to withstand.
Mil-Spec wire is ideal for use in a wide range of both military and non-military applications, such as those involving airframes, antennas, ground wire, heavy-duty vehicles, satellites, jet engines, weaponry, and various electrical systems. In addition to being rated for both high and low temperature environments, mil-spec wire and cable is highly resistant to abrasion, cut-through, and high-impact loading. Depending on its specific material make-up, it can also provide excellent protection against damage from moisture, fungus, and corrosive chemicals (fuels, solvents, alkalis, etc.).
In recent years, management of some military specifications has been transferred to non-governmental organizations, such as the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the National Electrical Manufactures Association (NEMA), among others.
