Series 423/723/425, 581/680/682,,, Female Contact Strip 10000 Pieces: Contact-Ø 1,5Mm, Insulation-Ø, -, Mm, Wire Gauge: 0,14, 0,25Mm²; - I understand you may pretty without difficulty decide the gauge of solid-middle cord with only a pair of calipers through measuring the conductor diameter, however with stranded wire, wouldn't there be variance in packing-efficiency of the strands? I also had little success locating a wire-gauge to stranded-wire-diameter desk. If you twist two wires collectively, every might convey half of the modern-day, so that you'd "efficiently growth the gauge." American twine gauges go down with the aid of approximately 10 for each component of ten in cross-sectional vicinity. In case you had ten #20 wires connected in parallel, they may convey as an awful lot power as one #10 twine. With two #20 wires, you would have the equivalent of one #17 cord.
Bundling of cable (what you are effectively doing) reduces the warmth dissipation ability of the cable, so a few safety thing have to be taken into consideration (ie do not use a 2x 20 awg cable for dc electricity if the application is electricity and calls for a minimum or special 17 awg, however if the requirement is extra than 17 awg however much less than 20 awg it is probably adequate, or if warmth isn't always normally an problem, such as loudspeaker cable, warmness dissipation troubles may be unnoticed). Again, all relying on application. I don't know if a sprinkler in this case way a fireplace extinguishing sprinkler or just a gardening sprinkler. If it's far for safety device i might honestly get the appropriate wire gauge from the start, to no longer threat that a twisted wire receives "untwisted" so the sprinkler might not be capable of function.
If it's miles stranded single cloth, like copper, i assume the first-class manner is to reduce a foot (or greater), strip it so it is pure steel, weigh it. Then calc what a unmarried solid wire weighs. Evaluate. Depends on how as it should be you need to know. The maximum accurate might come from the geometry as defined by means of connor. For "near enough for bench paintings", i take a cord stripper that's usually been fairly correct, and notice which set of notches strips the wire cleanly. For somewhere in between, i endorse carefully tinning a sample, applying warmth properly far from the solder so it wicks properly into the strands without including to the diameter, and measure with calipers.
