Defence Standard Wires
Defence Standard wires (Def Stan) are used as internal wiring within electronic equipment in applications where a high density of wires is required. Originally used by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) they are now widely utilised across a number of industries due to their high working voltage and broad range of sizes.
