Battery Cable SGX
Type SGX Battery Cable is a quality product that serves you right. The cable is given the best of latest technical design. It comes in customized gauge sizes that suits a consumer’s need. Battery is useful part of electronic system and deserves a proper designed cable, a cable that cannot cause life hazards. The Battery Cable SGX is top notch in quality, you can consider it.
It’s constructed using bare copper conductor. Copper is a very good conductor of electricity, it is also light weight and strong. To improve its flexibility, the conductors used are stranded. This makes it easier to use during wiring and circuit branching complicated circuits.
Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) serves as the insulation system for the cable. The material is color coded to reduce confusion. The process of cross-linking involves bring altogether various plastic molecules to form a sturdy polymer. This process results into a material with exceptional properties like heat deformation, high tensile strength, and retardant to chemicals, moisture and abrasion. The cross-linked insulation serves type SGX cable with adequate security.
It helps to transmit electric current from the car batteries to the car in-built utilities like head lights. This cable also serves in wiring of electronics especially home appliances which use chargeable batteries as the source of power. It is also applied in fire alarm section that is why it has temperature rating of -400C to 1250C.

Frequently Asked Questions - Battery Cable SGX
I’m installing a battery cable SGX, what special instructions do I need to adhere to?
The environment where the cable is going to be installed will need to conform with the rating and specifications of the SGX cable. This cable is designed to work in applications of up to 125 degrees Celsius and voltage of up to 60 volts. Make sure that you install it in locations that meet these specifications. The voltage may vary depending on whether you are using the wire to draw alternative current (AC) or direct current (DC).
What things will I factor in when determining the size of my Battery Cable SGT?
Battery cables should be of the right size to meet the needs of your electrical system. If you have a too small cable, it will result in excess heat that may bring about fire hazard. The much heat is lost, the more voltage drop you are going to experience. There are two things that determine the size of the cable. One is the amperage and second is the length.
I’m installing a battery wire to an automotive that doesn’t have a chassis ground, what happens?
If the vehicle or car you are fitting the battery wire does not contain chassis ground for example those vehicles that have a fiberglass body or something like a boat, you are going to have to double the length of the wire. So, when determining what length of battery cable SGT to use for the circuit, you should keep in mind you need both positive cable as well as the negative cable. A 15 feet wire running from the battery will need another 15 feet wire that will run back to the battery.
How do I identify Battery Cable SGT?
When you remove the insulation at the tip of the wire, you will see that it consists of individual strands cramped together. The strands look coppery since they are made of copper material. The insulation consists of cross-linked polyethylene material or XLPE. Again, look at the labeling to see that it is labeled Battery Cable SGT.
What are the approvals and certifications of Battery Cable SGT?
This battery cable meets standards such as RoH compliancy and SAE J-1128. It also meets vehicle manufacturers standards such as Chrysler MS-8288 and Ford ESB-M1L 123A.
