Recomendations For wire type and gauge.


Hey everyone,
I'm working on a scanning turret and I have used to stiff of wire to connect some of my sensors and still be able to use the turret to rotate well enough. Any one have any suggestions for some flexible wire that is quality enough to use for analog signals? And where might this wire be purchased? or is the standard stuff you find at jameco adequate?

Thanks! <3 with mouth!

Scroll down about half way down this fuse tutorial for a wire gauge chart.

Since sensors rarely require power, you can use really high gauges - I usually use 24 but 26 is good too.

Consider coiling it like a phone cord so it doesnt tangle . . . Just wrap it tight around a stick or something to coil.

Digikey has a lot of wire.
