Full Answer

There are many types of M27500 cable, ranging from RC-06 to TG-14. The differences in these cables range from the conductor stranding to the number of conductors. Most are temperature rated to 392 degrees Fahrenheit, but some are slightly lower at 302 degrees and perform well in a number of different environments.

M27500-RC-06 cable has a temperature rating of 392 degrees and a voltage rating of 600 volts. It is primarily used in flight vehicles because of its polytetrafluoroethylene insulation, silver-coated copper braid and stranded silver-coated copper conductor.

The M27500-TG-14 cable has a lower temperature rating of 302 degrees and a voltage rating of 600 volts. The conductor is stranded tinned copper and the shield is tinned copper braid with 85 percent coverage.

M27500-RC-09 cable has a conductor made from stranded silver-coated copper and insulation made from extruded polytetrafluoroethylene and a jacket of extruded fluorinated ethylene propylene. Like the other types of M27500 cable, it is primarily used in flight vehicles and has a temperature rating of 392 degrees.
