  3. 3. Wire Size Paul Reetz Team 2411 preetz@pps.k12.or.us
  4. 4. Wire Size <ul><ul><li><R47> All active Power Distribution Board branch circuits shall be wired with appropriately sized wire: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A. 12 AWG (2.052mm) or larger diameter wire must be used for all circuits protected by a 40A circuit breaker. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>B. 14 AWG (1.628mm) or larger diameter wire must be used for all circuits protected by a 30A circuit breaker. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>C. 18 AWG (1.024mm) or larger diameter wire must be used for all circuits protected by a 20A circuit breaker. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>D. 20 AWG (0.8128mm) or larger diameter wire must be used for the power connection between the Power Distribution Board and the cRIO-FRC . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>E. 20 AWG (0.8128mm) or larger diameter wire must be used for the power connection between the Power Distribution Board and the Linksys Wireless Bridge </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>F. 20 AWG (0.8128mm) or larger diameter wire must be used for the power connections between the Power Distribution Board and the Analog Breakouts and/or Solenoid Breakout if individual power feeds are used. 18 AWG or larger diameter wire must be used if a common power feed is used for multiple breakouts. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>G. 24 AWG (0.5106mm) or larger diameter wire must be used for providing power to pneumatic valves. </li></ul></ul>Paul Reetz Team 2411 preetz@pps.k12.or.us
  5. 5. Wire Size <ul><ul><li>The smaller the wire the less Amperage to the load </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The longer the wire the less Amperage to the load </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less Amperage means less capacity to do work </li></ul></ul><ul><li>http://www.nooutage.com/vdrop.htm </li></ul>Paul Reetz Team 2411 preetz@pps.k12.or.us

  7. 7. Crimp Correctly <ul><ul><li>Carefully strip enough insulation from the wire for the connection (usually ¼ to 3/8”) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Insert wire into the connector making sure that the insulator is not obstructing the connection. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Crimp the metal part of the connector tightly with a crimping tool </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tug on the connection to make sure it holds </li></ul></ul>Paul Reetz Team 2411 preetz@pps.k12.or.us
