Ancor White Triplex Cable 16/3 AWG Round 100′ (133710) is the longest lasting and most rugged available, exceeding UL 1426, ABYC and US Coast Guard Charter boat (CFR Title 46) standards. Ancor White Triplex Cable 16/3 AWG Round 100′ (133710) is constructed with premium vinyl insulation that is rated at 600 volts, 105 deg C dry and 75 deg C wet, stays flexible even in extreme cold (-40 deg F/C) and resists salt water, battery acid, oil, gasoline, heat, abrasion and ultra-violet radiation. Highest quality ultra flexible (Type 3) tinned copper stranding provides maximum protection against corrosion and electrolysis while resisting fatigue due to vibration and flexing.

Ancor White Triplex Cable 16/3 AWG Round 100′ (133710) Features:

  • Ancor Triplex Cable from Nomadic Supply Company is made to surpass the highest UL Boat Cable standards with ultra flexible (Type 3/Class K) stranding to resist fatigue due to vibration and flexing.
  • Outer jacket is made for easy removal and provides the best abrasion resistance available
  • Ancors proprietary premium vinyl insulation stays flexible even in extreme cold and resists salt water, battery acid, oil, gasoline and ultra-violet radiation. Exclusive insulation is rated at 600 volts, 105°C dry and 75°C wet, and is resistant to heat and abrasion.
  • Features three Marine Grade™ primary conductors (white, black and green) in a white common jacket.

Wire Flexibility Explained

Wire flexibility is influenced by two major factors: wire strand size and jacket hardness. Wire strand size has the largest impact on overall wire flexibility. As individual wire strand size decreases, wire flexibility increases.

For boat cable, UL 1426 requires at least 19 individual strands for cables 16 AWG and larger. Ancor wire uses type 3 stranding which consists of individual 30 AWG (0.010″) strands, regardless of the wire gauge. Ancor’s 16 AWG wire consists of 26 individual strands, while the 4/0 AWG wire consists of 2,109 individual strands.

Jacket hardness is most commonly measured by durometer, with lower measurements reflecting a more flexible material. Ancor wire measures 7 points lower than competitive product (on a scale of 1-100), resulting in a more flexible product.

Ancor Marine Grade Cable

Manufactured from tinned copper stranding for maximum protection against corrosion and electrolysis. Ultra flexible (Type 3) stranding resists fatigue due to vibration and flexing.

Ancor’s proprietary premium vinyl insulation stays flexible even in extreme cold (-40°F / -40°C) and resists salt water, battery acid, oil, gasoline and ultra-violet radiation. Exclusive insulation is rated at 600 volts, 221°F / 105°C dry and 167°F / 75°C wet, and is resistant to heat and abrasion.

Exceeds all UL 1426, US Coast Guard Charter boat (CFR Title 46) and ABYC standards.

Round versus Flat Duplex/Triplex

Duplex and triplex cable have many different advantages to help installers. The grouped wires save time and effort by having to run only one group instead of multiple individual wires and also provides extra protection for the wire itself. But they have different advantages based on the shape too. Round cable for instance is easier to install through bulk heads, walls, panels or holes, while flat cable is easier to route long distances since it can be moved through a smaller space.
