post #1911 of 14275
Perfect, thank you. I'm just going to be absolutely anal about the main power supply. I even bought a multimeter to make sure that what I think is connected actually is.

One last question, I know what gauge of wire to buy, but when I go to online wiring stores they have soooo many options. Do I need to meet any other standards? Some example of options are conducting area, insulator width, max voltage....can I just grab any old 18 awg? For instance this wire?

There are certain conditions the wires need to meet, I'll see if I can dig up all the info.

I get black wire normally and it's specs are:
  • UL 1007 Approved hook up wire.
  • CSA TR-64/1569 - OSHA Acceptable
  • PVC insulation - 300 volt Max.
  • Passes UL VW-1.S Vertical Flame Tests
  • 16 strand wire

Sweet! Thanks a lot (+rep). Do you have a vendor that you usually go through?

Heaver wire (smaller number) can transmit more power, but they can have too much resistance if you have a small amount of current running through them.

Lighter gauge wire (larger number) can't handle heavier loads. They will overheat, catch fire, burn out, etc. under extreme cases. But smaller loads will flow better through them since there is less resistance making them better suited to telephony, speakers, small case fans, etc.

The length of the runs also comes into play as the amount of current that flows decreases as the run gets longer.

This is why you want to use the heaviest gauge you can get balanced against the lightest gauge you can get away with.

There is a lot more to it than this, but that should give you a basic idea and starting point.

Thank you for that light explanation, sir

I'm required to take some electrical courses for my degree in college, so I'll probably get a more in depth explanation from that. But this is a nice little starting point.

Hey guys how much do you think MDCP-X sleeving is worth per meter?
EX: $5 USD per meter.

So what do you think its worth per meter for someone reselling in the US?

Nils (owner of MDPC) doesn't do official reselling and if you did it unofficially you would never make a profit, possibly you would make a loss after shipping etc.
