NEMA Publishes ANSI/NEMA WC 67-2012 Standard for Uninsulated Conductors Used in Electrical and Electronic Applications


12/5/2012 1:00PM

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.

NEMA is the association of electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers, founded in 1926 and headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. Its member companies manufacture a diverse set of products including power transmission and distribution equipment, lighting systems, factory automation and control systems, and medical diagnostic imaging systems. Worldwide annual sales of NEMA-scope products exceed $120 billion.
