Hook-up wire is a type of copper wire with a single, insulated conductor, that is either solid (a singular strand of wire), or stranded (multiple thinner strands bundled to equal a thicker gauge).
2.What gauge is hookup wire？
Hook up wire 12/14/16/18/20/22/24/30AWG can be selected, including the length, the conventional ones are 25feet and 100feet, and various customizations are supported.
3.How to choose insulated hook up wire gauges ?
Generally, the single-wire conductor determines the wire size according to the diameter, while the stranded wire determines the wire size according to the cross-sectional area. The larger the cross-sectional area, the greater the current that the cable can transmit, and the longer the transmission distance. Bigger wires (smaller gauge count) are always "better" because you'll get less voltage
Drops and heat loss due to resistance, especially with longer wires. But larger wires cost more, are bulkier, and stiffer. So you need to determine what kind of wire to use according to different current and power.
4.Will the hook up wire be attracted by the magnet?
This is tinned copper wire. Copper is a non-ferrous metal, which means it does not contain iron. So it will not be attracted by the magnet.
5.Can this be used as a speaker wire?
In short, no. This is single conductor wire.
I think you could use 2 wires running in parallel, it would be simpler to buy a "speaker wire".
6.When you bend these type of wires, do they stay in position or do they go all over the place?
If you use a stranded core, the wires are very flexible and the little wires inside are very thin. NUELEAD's new design adds sponge inside the box to keep wires from cluttering. Use solid wire if you want it to stay bent. But you cannot use crimp connectors with solid cores.
7.Can other colors be customized? Like gray, brown, purple?
NUELEAD supports all customization, but needs to reach a certain MOQ. Packaging and logos can also be customized and printed.We have rich experience in customization and have tried many different color customizations. Contact us for more cases.
8.Can the hook up wires be made of silicone? How much current can the silicone wire withstand?
It all depends on how much wire heating you can tolerate. Silicone wire insulation is supposed to hold up well at 200℃, so this wire can carry more current than normal building wiring. Typically the wire has 200℃ and the insulation can carry the following currents:18 AWG - 30 A, 20 AWG - 20 A, 22 AWG - 14A。
9.What is hook up wire？
Hook-up wire is a family of wire with a single (solid or stranded) insulated conductor used for making internal connections in low current, low voltage (< 600V) applications.
10.Is the wire stranded or solid core?
It depends upon which item variation you choose. Some will be stranded, some solid…
Solid is not easy to bend and deform, and it is easy to fix. If your wiring range is relatively large and the line is very long, it is recommended that you choose stranded
11.What is hook up wire used for?
Hook up wire are widely used for model planes,model cars,model ships,lamps,household appliances,electric heating appliances,meters,automotive repair wire，marine wire,instruments,electric toys, vehicle repair, small household appliances, robots, general mechanical equipment, etc
12.Is stranded copper wire as good as solid? Hook up wire stranded vs solid.
Solid Advantages: long service life, not easy to oxidize due to the small ratio of outer circle area / cross-sectional area, and resistant to short-circuit current impact.
Solid Disadvantages: The wire is hard, and it is difficult to straighten after bending. Repeated bending-straightening is easy to be injured, and it is labor-intensive when setting the small tube. It is mostly used in fixed and buried environments.
Stranded Advantages: Because the wire is relatively soft, it is mostly used in active electricity places and temporary electricity places, and it is easy to install, drag and drop and move.
Stranded Disadvantages: The service life is short. Due to the large ratio of outer circle area to cross-sectional area, the oxidation speed is fast. If it is impacted by short-circuit current, the surface will be seriously oxidized after high temperature, and the effective cross-section will be greatly reduced. The safe electricity should be replaced in time.
13.What are the different types of wiring?
In the case of the same cross-sectional area, for example, a coil of 2.5 square wire, stranded is more expensive than solid.
The reason is also very simple, because the production of stranded is more complicated than hard wire, and the price is naturally more expensive. In other words, hard wires are more cost-effective, and solid is used for home decoration, which can save decoration costs while ensuring quality.
2. Service life
Compared with soft stranded, solid has better tensile strength, good electrical conductivity, low resistance, strong corrosion resistance and long service life.
The stranded copper wire is relatively thin, has a wider contact area with the air, has a large resistance, and is easy to be oxidized and corroded. The wire is used for a long time, and the copper wire will gradually age due to uneven heat conduction, burn out, and even short-circuit.
3. Anti-skin ability
When the wire is energized, there will be a phenomenon called the skin effect, where the current is concentrated on the surface of the wire.
Therefore, compared with solid and stranded, the equivalent resistance of stranded at high frequency is smaller than that of solid, and it is better in anti-skin ability. The current can be distributed more evenly, and it will not cause current loss and waste like solid.
4. Threading difficulty
The wires used in home decoration are now required to be threading pipes, which can protect the wires and prevent them from being damaged during construction.
Doing so protects the wires, but also increases the difficulty of threading relatively, especially for solids, because of their high hardness and not easy to bend, the ability to pass through the threading tube is relatively poor.
Relatively speaking, stranded has low hardness, so it does not need to be too hard to pull and bend, and it is easier to repair and change wires later.
5. Wiring difficulty
If you want the wire to provide the function of power transmission, in addition to threading the wire, you must also wire the switch and socket. In this respect, the two are different.
Because there are many stranded copper wires, the firmness is low. When wiring, we need to twist these thin wires into one strand. If these thin wires are exposed and there is a virtual connection, the circuit is easy to appear in the subsequent electricity use process. Short circuit, leakage, etc.
However, solid does not have this problem, because it is a wire design, which is very convenient for wiring. Simply put, solid is better than stranded in terms of wiring difficulty.
