Elizabeth, NJ, November 14, 2011 – Due to growing success of EcoWire in the marketplace, and increasing customer demand, Alpha Wire is now offering the environmentally friendly hook-up wire in 12 standard colors.
“Dark blue is a very popular color in the programmable logic controller (PLC) industry, specifically in I/O applications, and we have had multiple requests for it to date,” states Tim Howlett, Senior Product Manager at Alpha Wire. “Adding this color to our standard selection allows EcoWire to be more prominently used in panel building and all DC circuitry.”
EcoWire is an engineering breakthrough that combines increased performance in hook-up wire with minimized environmental impact. EcoWire derives its advantage from its unique modified polyphenylene ether (mPPE) insulation. This produces a wire that is up to 45% smaller and 40% lighter with 10x the abrasion resistance of PVC wire. The eco-friendly wire contains no halogens, phthalates, or heavy metals, and meets the RoHS and WEEE requirements for the elimination of hazardous substances and recyclability.
While the dark blue color will be part of the standard color selection on EcoWire, dark blue with white striping, and white with dark blue striping will both be available as custom orders.
