What is hook up wire used for?

This equipment wire can be applied to endless applications. These can range from domestic household appliances, industrial equipment and factory machine. Due to the reliability of the copper conductors, these types of wires are usually the preferred choice with any internal wiring system. As an example, these are some common places you would find equipment wire:

• Circuit boards
• Computer internals
• Mobile phones and other battery operated devices
• Vehicle lights

What is hook up wire?

Hook up wire, or copper wire/equipment wire as it's also called is primarily used for low voltage and current applications. Copper strands are sheathed by a cover (usually PVC) and act as the conductor of electricity to power its target. Frequently found within everyday household and workplace appliances, hook up wire is a common occurrence. If a device has multiple wires to operate, hook up wire will usually be installed with different sheath colours on their respective terminals. This is to avoid the confusion of a "spaghetti junction" of wires.

Benefits of a copper conductor

Copper is the go to metal for nearly all cable. Due to the excellent conduction of electricity it provides. Circuit boards, telephone lines, power cables (including multicore) all use copper as the solid core interior of their wire.
