Organization: SAE
Publication Date: 1 September 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 34
scope:

This specification covers concentric lay stranded and rope-lay stranded round electrical conductor fabricated from copper, copper alloy or aluminum. This specification also covers thermocouple extension conductor fabricated from nickel/chromium or nickel/aluminum/manganese. The conductors in this specification are suitable for use in insulated wires used in aerospace and other applications.

Classification

Stranded conductors are classified herein. The classifications are as follows:

Conductor Material

Conductor Coating

Conductor Stranding

Conductor Dimensions

The above conductor is a size 20 conductor of silver coated annealed copper conductor with general purpose diameter control.

Basic Part Number

The conductor part number consists of the letter "M," the basic number of the applicable specification and the applicable alpha-numeric characters formulated in the example (see 1.1.1).

Conductor Size

A one- or two-digit designator from Table 4 is used to designate the conductor size.

Conductor Material and Coating Designator

An alphabetic designator from Table 3 is used to designate the conductor material and conductor coating.

Conductor Diameter Tolerance

The conductor diameter dimensional tolerance is designated as follows:

GP - General Purpose (see Table 4)

SD - Small Diameter (see Table 4)

NOTE: The GP conductors are inactive for new design for copper and copper alloy conductors. All conductors without a distinct diameter tolerance (GP or SD) are designated as general purpose (GP) diameter tolerance conductors.

intended Use:

These conductors are used primarily in insulated wires for aerospace, electrical, electronic, and other high performance applications.
