Mil-Spec Wire and 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.

RG/Coaxial Cable

Our coaxial cable meets the highest mil-spec and commercial standards. Designed with the highest quality standards, it is suited for the critical applications in the aerospace and defense industries, as well as other industrial use, including the information systems, transportation, and telecommunications industries.

Coaxial cable is available in a wide array of configurations. With a variety of different conductor sizes, grades, insulation, and coverings available, our selection is prepared for the environments and demands of today’s most competitive industries.

The variety of configurations we offer, such as RG Cable and MIL-C-17, address application requirements such as cable impedance, environmental temperature rating, working voltage, power rating and signal loss at specified frequencies. Many of the RG specifications exist within the MIL-C-17 requirement standards. In addition, our product line includes a range of characteristics for shielding, weight and other key electrical parameters.

Our coaxial cable is designed and manufactured for the stellar performance and reliability that today’s commercial, aerospace and defense industries require.

High Speed Data Cables

A.E. Petsche provides a large selection of high-speed data cables. With such a demanding applications as in flight entertainment and on-board WiFi, high speed data is of critical importance in aviation/aerospace.
