Here is the ampacity (maximum amount of current) that each size of this silicon wire can handle. Keep in mind that this is just a rule of thumb as ambient temperature and air flow will make a difference.
It means American Wire Gauge. It tells you something about the thickness of the wire. Wires with lower AWG are thicker. If you google 'AWG table' you will find a table with wire diameters and Amp-ratings.
No Pedro, this is not "thermo retractil". This is normal silicone wire, used as baterry leads, or ESC - Motor cables.
Hope this helps.
Nenhuma Pedro, este nã*o é* o "termo-retractil". Este é* o fio de silicone normal, usado como cabos da bateria, ou ESC - Os cabos do motor.
Espero que isso ajude
Ive been using Turnigy wire for the last 2 years after switching from Deans and it seems to react as well or better than Deans. Ive used the 12awg with currents up to my dual 3s packs and it does get warm, but just keeps on going! BEST MONEY IVE EVER SPENT ON WIRE!
It really depends on the length of wire as the voltage drop through the wire increases with length so try to keep all wires as short as possible and run 40 amp or less through these. There is always a loss through wire and the length determines how much so shorter is best
These are still 14awg the reason so low is the resistance and voltage loss rises rapidly with increased amps - the wire can take 140 amp but the voltage loss will be high meaning less power to the motor so we play the compromise between weight and voltage loss
OK its 3mm. if you look under wireguage on internet you will find wire size that tells you all size (diam) for wire but remember to allow a little for sillicon coating. It is a world standard guage system :) *)
Wire capacity is not as much about gauge as it is about the combination of the amount of volts wire gauge and the temperature rating of the insulation. The more power you push through a wire the hotter it gets if you don't increas the gauge. This wire is rated at 200C wich is quite high. Typical household and automotive installations insist the wire stay cold so that's the typical rating. Here we know things get warm as long as its not melting things or is a fire hazard it's ok to push a bit. 60 to 80 amp should not be an issue.
Are the ends tinned? or is it Aluminum color deeper into the wire?
If it is aluminum deeper in, then HK is probably just cheaping out and using aluminum wire instead of copper wire and not changing their product description. If paid through paypal you could always file a 'product not as described' dispute if it is big problem for you.
yes its tinned, benefits : •Tinned copper wire lasts up to 10 times longer than non-tinned wire. It also resists water corrosion and provides enhanced conductivity. •Coating the wire with tin provides it with even more durability and strength.
Ends cannot be tinned :) Just because it is solid wire with tinned surface. Try to cut single wire with proper full-flush cutter - and you'll see red tint on the end. If you still cannot see it - use magnification lenses (14x is more than enough)
These wires are just amazing. These are very flexible. Keep them in zip pouch with some powder to avoid getting silicone hard because of moisture. If you order 5 meters, you will get full 5 meters in length. No cutting or splitting. I give 5 stars to it for quality.
