Which Type of Wire Should I use ?

Joseph T. -

The Type of Wire to be Used is determined by the application.

Portable Table Lamps:

Exterior from Base of Lamp to Plug - Use SVT or SPT-2 or Equivalent Type Wire.

Note: Many Older Table Lamps use SPT-1 on the Exterior.

Internal Connection Wiring - Use SPT (1 or 2) or AWM 105 Deg. or TFFN or PTFE

Wire Pendant Hanging Lamps:

Fixtures 5 lbs or less - Use SVT Type Wire with proper  Strain Relief Bushing.

Fixtures 10 lbs or less - Use SJT Type Wire with proper Strain Relief Bushing.

Chain Hanging Fixtures:

Exterior Threaded through the Chain - Use SPT-1 Type Wire

All Internal Fixture Wire:

Internal Connection Wiring - Use SPT (1 or 2) or AWM 105 Deg. or TFFN or PTFE
