Wires and Cables
As the wires become ever smaller in size and superior in performance, computers, switchboards and other electrical, electronic devices demand wiring that are more complicated and advanced. Lighter and smaller wire with a better space factor has become necessary for this technological tendency. To meet these requirements, Sumitomo Electric produces a wide range of wires and cables which simplify wiring and improve operational efficiency.
These wires are also Underwriters Laboritories (UL) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) recognized. Sumitomo Electric developed the technology of irradiated cross-linked polyethylene and cross-linked PVC. After irradiation, they possess both improved heat resistance and wire end workability (for soldering). They are widely used under the trade name of Irrax wire.
