ROSSLYN, Va., —The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published ANSI/NEMA WC 67-2012 Standard for Uninsulated Conductors Used in Electrical and Electronic Applications.
ANSI/NEMA WC 67-2012 covers the following uninsulated conductors:
• single end (solid) and stranded
• coated and uncoated copper
• coated copper alloy
• coated copper-clad steel
• aluminum conductors
• thermocouple extension conductors
These conductors are used primarily in insulated wires for aerospace, electrical, electronic, and other high performance applications.
“WC 67-2012 provides the requirements for high-reliability conductors used in aerospace, electrical, and electronic equipment. The 2012 revision will be referenced by a battery of high performance wire and cable standards,” said Kevin Coderre, technical director, RSCC Aerospace and Defense, and NEMA 7HW Aerospace Technical Committee chairman. “Specifically, the revision adds silver-coated copper and silver-coated copper alloy requirements to bring the document in line with the current state of practice of the industry.”
ANSI/NEMA WC 67-2012 is available in electronic or hardcopy format for $78. To purchase, visit NEMA’s website or contact IHS by phone at 800-854-7179 (within the U.S.) or 303-397-7956 (international), or visit global.ihs.com.
