Pitching in to Help Victims of Hurricane Harvey

As you know, much of Houston and southeastern Texas is still reeling from the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey.

In the spirit of helping our neighbors in need, we’re donating a percentage of all sales in the month of September to the American Red Cross. They’re doing great work providing shelter, food, and supplies to the tens of thousands displaced by the storm. Here’s more information for those who’d like to learn about the Red Cross’ relief efforts.

Choosing between THHN & XHHW wire

Floyd_Mayweather,_Jr._vs._Juan_Manuel_Márquez

Weighing the differences between THHN/THWN-2 & XHHW/XHHW-2 building wire

When it comes to building wire, two of the most common and popular choices for electricians, engineers & homeowners are THHN and XHHW (or the newer and improved THWN/THWN-2 and XHHW-2). These cables come in both copper and aluminum, can have solid or stranded conductors, and are mainly used for power distribution up to 600 volts in the construction of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.

While these two wire types are very similar and often interchangeable in their application, the differences are important to know in order to make the smartest decision when making a building wire purchase.

Wire & Cable Glossary

What do the ‘M’ and ‘C’ in MC cable mean? What does XLPE cable stand for? Why is it called SOOW cable? Answers to these questions and more!scientists

The world of wire and cable has a language of its own, and even those with experience need a translator from time to time. Your old pal Willie knows this to be true, so I’ve compiled a cheat sheet on wire and cable nomenclature for you to reference.

First, we have a list of individual descriptors, each either made up of one or two letters. These can define what the cable is used for, what it’s made of, or what the cable can withstand––like heat resistance or voltage ratings. Often, a cable’s name will be some combination of two or more of the descriptors below.

The Components of Wire & Cable Nomenclature

E: thermoplastic elastomer
FF: flexible fixture
H: heat-resistant 75ºC
HH: high heat-resistant 90ºC
J: junior service, rated to 300 volts
