Battery Cable SGT 80C
Here is another Battery Wire developed with the latest technological touch. The cable is capable of working in the industrial, commercial and domestic electric systems. Automotive batteries need cables with top integrity. Cables which have low current resistance, high flexible and light weight, this is where SGT 80C comes in handy type.
It has conductors with gauge sizes ranging from 6AWG to 4/0 AWG. These copper conductors are stranded, a process that improves a cable’s flexibility. This stranded makes the cable very suitable for battery wiring in the cars and for domestic appliances.
A Polyvinyl Chloride material is used in the construction of the cables insulation. It is color avoid confusion during operation. The material is lead free, making it less harmful to humans. It has a versatile insulation system that cannot leak currents. This Polyvinyl Chloride offers resistance to the UV lights, moisture and flame. It also offers mechanical support to the cable, preventing nicks and acting like a sturdy shock absorber. This adequate security is what can guarantee your circuit longevity.
This battery wire is used mainly in the automotive applications, where is serves in car battery connection to other in-built utility. Besides, is also used in fire alarms. The cable can also be used in the domestic electronic connection like serving your television set using power from a chargeable battery. It has temperature rating range of -400C to 800C with volts rating of 60V dc and 25 V ac.
Frequently Asked Questions- Battery Cable SGT 80C
I want my Battery Cable SGT 80C to perform effectively, what special instructions should I follow?
When installing your battery wire, make sure that the environment is suitable. Battery Cable SGT 80C is designed for use in environments that do not exhibit temperatures more than 80 degrees Celsius. Therefore, if you are going to use it near or around areas experiencing intense heat, it will not perform. The voltage rating is up to 60 volts.
Why is the size of my battery cable very important?
To power your system, you want to make sure you have the right size of a battery cable. When electricity if flowing through the cable, it meets resistance and this manifests in form of heat that is lost to the wire. The heat is accounted for in form of voltage drop at the end of the wire. When you measure the voltage at the source, which is the battery and measure it again at the end of the wire, you may see there is some difference. It will have dropped and this is expected. However, the voltage drop should not be too huge. The voltage drop comes about due to the diameter or gauge of the wire in the cable and the length of that cable. If you have a longer cable connecting the battery to the system, then it will have a higher voltage drop. Similarly, if you have a larger diameter or what is called gauge (AWG), you will have a low voltage drop.
How will a big voltage drop of Battery Cable SGT 80C affect my system?
Having a big voltage drop can affect your battery system. If for example you have a circuit that requires a current of 100 amps and there is a 2 percent voltage drop, it means that the cable will take in power of 24 watts due to the resistance it has. So, if you are going to have a higher resistance that is causing 10 percent voltage drop, meaning the voltmeter is reading 10.8 volts at the end of the wire, the same current draw of 100 amps is going to cause the battery to take in 120 watts. This is going to make the wire feel warm when you touch it. Now, the voltage drop will cause things like fans and motors to be weaker. Things like light bulbs will get dimmer. So, the point is, if you don’t choose the correct size (meaning length and amperage) of your wire, it is going to cause you troubles.
