|UL Certification of
TEX-E Series Wires Category Shift on TEX-E
|The UL certifications of TEX-E Series
Wires are in transition: they were recertified under the service of UL
Subjects 2353, as of April, 2000. Note No.1696 of Log-in (for Technical Support).

|Other similar wires are on the market
which can be confused with TEX-E. They are neither in accordance with
most safety standards, nor supported by most certification authorities.
|On the left is an overview of a similar
product (insulation and conductor) currently on the market, and on the
right is its cross section. They may seem familiar to you because of
the colour and general appearance (such as a strong resemblance to some
model of TEX-E series). This wire product shown above seems to above
provide three (3) Nylon insulation layers on a "Polyurethane" enamelled
magnet wire with EFTE. You should note that the nylon and the
polyurethane are unqualified to form "Solid Insulation" in any way,
which the safety standards require for the making of "Triple Insulated

of the wound components exceed Class A (105C), it is required in
accordance with appropriated Insulation System UL 1446/IEC 61857
regardless of temperature rating of each materials/wires. The object of
EIS is to evaluate the endurance/life-time with chemical interaction of
wound component, not of wire itself.
Please note that this EIS is not the specification of TEX series wires,
nor does it guarantee the performance of the wound components using our
wires. Whether or not a wound component using TEX-E meet the
performance depends on the design and wounding conditions of that
component; so that the clients are kindly requested to experiment
yourself for confirmation of the actual component.
