Explore the practical side of electrical wiring with Eaton’s Power Systems Experience Center wire display. This video breaks down key aspects, from determining wire sizes based on current draw to navigating NEC regulations, such as the 125% rating rule for continuous loads. Erik Hurd, Eaton Power System Experience Center (PSEC) Senior Engineer and Adam Schmitt, Ferry Electric Commercial Service Electrician, provide a clear explanation of the pros and cons of copper vs. aluminum, especially when dealing with specialty items like EV chargers. Discover the impact of temperature ratings on wire choices and the convenience of pre-made cables versus single conductors. They also discuss Thermoplastic High Heat-resistant Nylon-coated (THHN) wire, diesel locomotive cable (DLO), and SO cord. SO cord is a cable assembly that has great versality because of the protection from elements such as oil and water. They also touch on how commercial buildings use conductors in metal clad cable compared to uses non-metallic cable used in residential applications. Non-metallic cable is commonly referred to as “Romex” for one of the more common brand names.
