Cable types
It is imperative that you use cable which is capable of carrying the current you intend to use. Research has shown that the current carrying capacity of wire depends on the surface area – thus many fine wires carry current better than one thick wire. That is why many manufacturers specify highly flexible cable for electric flight – flexibility is a characteristic of cable with many fine wires (and it folds up easier into your aircraft). To give you an example of what I mean, the 2.5 sp.mm cross-section cable listed below contains in excess of 600 fine wires and will carry current up to and exceeding 50A!
