Wire and Cable Design Essentials

Designing your ideal wire and cable solution requires consideration of factors such as wire gauge (AWG), electrical amperage requirements, transfer distance, environmental conditions, regulatory requirements, and compliance with other application-specific parameters.

Mercury Wire’s offering includes support in the selection of the most appropriate materials and components required to help ensure that the final product we manufacture for you meets your specific application needs. From determining the number of conductors, selecting wire gauge, determining water resistance, selecting insulation material, and integrated assembly components, our goal is to provide you with the most robust wire and cable solutions.
