Hook-Up Wire

In order to understand hook up wire, you must first understand the purpose of conductors. A wire or cables conductor is the piece that conducts electricity and is the main part for transferring power. 

Each wire and cable has a unique conductor and conductor sizing (Gauge, AWG). A hook-up wire can be distinguished from all other types of cabling categories as it is a ‘lead wire’. A hook-up lead wire is defined as “a wire that is a coated copper wire, a tinned copper wire or another electrically conductive wire used to connect two locations electrically” (Wikipedia). The hook-up wire is always created with a single conductor, unlike other products that consist of multiple conductors (Multi-Conductor Cables).
