What is UL and CSA?
The UL standard (Underwriters Laboratories) is a recognised certificate that requires the rigorous testing of product samples to determine whether the product meets specific, defined requirements. These requirements are often based on UL's published and nationally recognised Standards for Safety. CSA approval (Canadian Standards Association) provides product testing and certification for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, gas and various other products. This approval is recognised in Canada, the U.S and various countries around the world. It includes a stringent series of flame tests on wires and cables.
What is the difference between UL 1015 and MTW?
UL 1015 is an appliance wiring material (AWM) style that is based on the requirements of UL Standard 758. AWM 1015 is a popular style for a single conductor wire that has an 80°C, 90°C or 105°C temperature rating, a 600 V ac or 750 V dc voltage rating, a horizontal flame test rating, and an optional 60°C or 80°C Oil rating. Most AWM 1015 wires on the market are 105°C. Machine tool wire (MTW) is UL Standard 1063. This standard covers both wires and cables designed for use on industrial machines. Conductors must be insulated with PVC or PVC/Nylon and Multi-conductor cables must be jacketed with a PVC that passes the UL Oil Res I test. The UL Standard only allows 22 AWG and larger conductors. There are lots of details on how the conductor must be stranded and what is suitable for flexing, etc. MTW wires and cables carry a 600 Volt 90°C Dry, 60°C Wet, temperature rating.
