Defence Standard Cable

Eland Cables supplies a range of equipment wire manufactured to Defence Standard (also known as Def Stan), including 61-12 Part 4, Part 5 and Part 6 as well as meeting British and International Standards.
 
Our equipment wires are extensively used by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in applications requiring high-density wiring within instruments and to connect electronic equipment. These flexible multi-core cables are used in aircraft, process control systems, computers, data processors, military vehicles and military equipment. As a high-grade, high-specification, compact cable, this range can also be used outside of the Defence industry. 
 
Both Part 4 and Part 5 cables have a Tinned Copper Wire Braid (TCWB) screening, providing protection against outside electrical interference. Part 4 cables are screened sub-miniature multi-core cables; Part 5 cables are special purpose small multi-core cables. Def Stan Part 6 cables are unscreened flexible equipment wires.

Our 61-12 Part 6 equipment wire is available with a Type 1 (T1) or Type 2 (T2) outersheath for a hard wearing applications or Type 3 (T3) outersheath for general purpose. More information on def stan cable colour codes can be found on individual datasheets. These wires are widely used outside of the defence industry in applications with the following voltage and temperature rating:

Def Stan 61-12 Part 6 - Type 1 (T1) 750V -15oC to +85oC
Def Stan 61-12 Part 6 - Type 2 (T2) 1000V -15oC to +85oC
Def Stan 61-12 Part 6 - Type 3 (T3) 1500V -20oC to +85oC
