16 / 0.2mm RS Pro Equipment Wire

These wires are intended for internal wiring applications in electrical and electronic equipment, they meet the requirements of IEC 189-3. The high-quality inner conductor defines the flexibility and conductivity of the wire. Tin used in conjunction with copper boosts the copper’s properties and helps the wire to last much longer and counter acts against oxidation. Tin also helps to strengthen the copper wire, making it more resistant to breakage. Stranded wires are easier to operate and install than solid wires with the same cross-section. They are simply more flexible and resistant to bending. At the same time, a particular cross-section of stranded conductor gives it essentially the same resistance characteristics as a single-strand conductor, but with added flexibility.

Features and benefits:

• Stranded tinned copper guarantee extra flexibility and ease of installation • 0.3mm PVC wall thickness
• O/D 1.45 → 1.65mm
• Voltage rating 1kV rms
• Current rating 3A
• Temperature rating -15 → +85°C guarantee safe operation in wide range of systems

Frequently asked questions & answers:

Hook up wire, or copper wire/equipment wire as it's also called is primarily used for low voltage and current applications. Copper strands are sheathed by a cover (usually PVC) and act as the conductor of electricity to power its target. Frequently found within everyday household and workplace appliances, hook up wire is a common occurrence. If a device has multiple wires to operate, hook up wire will usually be installed with different sheath colours on their respective terminals. This is to avoid the confusion of a "spaghetti junction" of wires.

Can this wire be used outdoor?

Wires are designed to be used in indoor systems, however, the wide temperature operation resistance may allow for a short period of time outdoor operation.

Which wire types are a better choice, stranded or solid?

Both stranded and solid wire have the same resistance properties but stranded wire guarantee an extra flexibility, resistance to bending and are generally easier to install than solid cables.

Note

The RS Brand range of products has been certified by engineers as offering comparable quality to that of leading brands without the premium price tag.
