    1.1 These requirements cover single-conductor and multi-conductor, unjacketed, 18 – 10 AWG (0.807 – 5.16 mm2), low voltage LED wire rated 105°C – 250°C (221°F – 482°F), and 300 or 600 volts, suitable for installation in dry and damp, or wet locations. These wires are for use with signs, outline lighting, and interior lighting where the wire is only connected to the output of the driver to the LED array, is only accessible during user servicing of the sign, and is not required to be additionally enclosed by the sign enclosure, in accordance with the Standard for Electrical Signs, UL 48.

    1.2 Assemblies that include these wires and are intended for use as components of signs shall meet the requirements in the Standard for Electric-Sign Components, UL 879.

    1.3 Wires that are surface marked "-EX" are for use as exposed runs between a cable tray and utilization equipment where the wires are continuously supported and protected against physical damage using mechanical protection such as struts, angles, or channels.
