How to Pick the Proper Electrical and Automotive Wire
The first step in selecting the proper product is understanding the fundamentals of automotive and electrical wire, especially in light of the large variety available. Continue reading to learn the five key factors to consider when picking the best electrical or automotive wire.
The most common materials used to make automobile wire are copper and aluminum. Copper wire is superior to aluminum wire in terms of conductivity, flexibility, and likelihood of corrosion. However, copper wire is heavier and more susceptible to price changes right now, so you’ll need a reliable distributor to keep your prices down. Aluminum is less expensive, lighter, and corrodes more easily than other materials.
The entire quantity of electricity that may flow via a wire is measured in amps, or “amps”. Because overloading a wire is exceedingly dangerous for both our employees and customers, we should be aware of the current rating of every single wire that enters the store and have to make sure it is properly labeled.
The automobile wire gauge is the next thing to be aware of. A wire is thicker if its gauge is lower in number. As a general guideline, the lower the gauge has to be, the longer the wire needs to travel in your design or repair or the more power that needs to pass through it.
