Omega’s XT insulated wire along with the XC braided insulation sleeving has provided electrical conductor solutions for SOFC fuel cell interconnect applications. This series of electrical conductors comes in multiple shapes, diameters and insulations. Omega N wire features low electrical resistance at high temperature (up to 1,200 degrees C), as well as nickel-, stainless- and platinum-based alloys with an increased surface area and low thermal expansion. Available as single or dual interconnect wire, the XTW-XT version provides 3,000-volt High Pot performance testing capabilities. The XTW-XT design is a combination of Omega’s wrapping and over braiding insulation capabilities.
