12awg 600VDC-Rated, Duelund Hook-up Wire (DCA12GA600V), Tinned Copper Strands, PolyCAST Jacket (dielectric)
The dielectric on this wire is a unique Thermoplastic Resin composite, which emulates DUELUND’s “Signature” CAST process.
Noted that this is NOT oil cotton version, it is a PolyCast sleeve version. We are using Duelund tinned copper wire DCAXGA600V in a 600v PolyCast sleeve. There are three types of wires: 12GA, 16GA and 20GA:
12GA: Total diameter for copper core 2.2mm, a total of 63 strands of 0.23mm parallel thin core wires
16GA: Total diameter for copper core 1.3mm, a total of 26 strands of 0.23mm parallel thin core wires
20GA: Total diameter for copper core 0.9mm, a total of 25 strands of 0.14mm parallel thin core wires
Other cables makers mostly use DCAXGA – Tinned copper multistrand wire in a cotton and oil dielectricum. We do not use DCAXGA with oil cotton because DCAXGA oil cotton is only good for bare wire (without shielding) applications. Since we are using multicore cables design, so it is not suitable for our design and our applications. Note that the core wires are the same for both PolyCast sleeve and oil cotton, both using same number of copper diameter and same number of strands and parallel thin core wires. Since our cable design with multiple shielding and vibration control are much better than the simple bare wire oil cotton, the sound performance is much better.
