Hi I'm working on a consumer product and I'm trying to find out what the minimum permissible wire size for my application is. Looking at different AWG charts, I found it a little confusing and I'm not sure which values apply (power transmission or chassis wiring). Some people told me that I should take the value for power transmission but others suggested the value for chassis wiring. The wires need to be as flexible as possible, so I want to make sure that I don't use unnecessarily thick wires.
Here's the specifics. I will have a total of 5 wires bundled in one strand. 3 wires connect to a brushless motor that draws about .3-.4 amps @12V. The remaining two wires are connecting a battery (positive and negative) with a pcb board. They run 1.2 amps @12V. The length of the wires is ca 6-8inches. Insulation type is silicone.
Any input would be apprechiated.
