CABLE CONSTRUCTION - LIGHTWEIGHT/SPACE

SPACE-26SC2S23

Our Space LT™ wire was specially designed to endure the harsh atmospheric changes of space, while meeting the industry’s need for reduced size and weight. Now you can take advantage of these high-temp, lighter, smaller cables and reduce the overall weight and size of your harnesses while boosting performance.

  • Specification

  • SPACE is used to designate our Space LT™
  • Shielded Coverage and Color Identification

  • A dash (-) or letter code indicates both shielding coverage and the method of color identification of primary core insulation as detailed in Table A. The example indicates 85% and white primaries with colored stripes.
  • Conductor Size

  • This position identifies the wire AWG. Whitmor/Wirenetics can manufacture cables utilizing wire AWGs of 30-10, depending on Basic Wire Specification.
  • Basic Wire Specification

  • The component wires are identified by a two-letter code. Cables utilizing Space LT™ components are detailed in Table B.
  • Number of Conductors

  • M27500 currently specifies from 1 to 15 conductors for shielded and jacketed cables, and from 2 to 15 for unshielded unjacketed or unshielded jacketed cables.
  • Shield

  • The specific shield style and material are designated by a single-letter code, detailed in Table C.
  • Jacket

  • Cable jacketing materials are specified with a two-digit code, detailed in Table D.
