Solved gauge of wire for mini height sensor
Hi, Could someone give me advice on what gauge wire I should use for wiring up a mini height sensor please? Many thanks
this one? https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/IR_Probe
Hardly uses any current, so pick something that will fit the crimp terminals; usaully 26-24 gauge; can probably use smaller if you double up the copper to make a good crimp.
@JTBrown, as bearer said, gauge doesn't matter that much due to the low current but if the wire needs to flex all the time (e.g. due to a moving head), you want wire that for the same gauge, has more thin cores (strings). This one for example has 60 cores and thus will be more flexible.
