A: 12 awg wire is equivalent to 2mm. US codes generally allow 20 amps for 12 awg wire regardless of voltage (though there are exceptions) and this stranded wire needs to be in an appropriately sized conduit. I have no idea how the local codes in Ghana may differ.
A: This wire is rated to 20 AMPs up to 600 volts but should be installed in some type of metal or plastic conduit with a ground wire in the conduit this would be equal to 2.0 mm
A: It’s wet location rated cable I wouldn’t use anything else for an outdoor pool pump than this stuff. You need to run it in gray electrical conduit of course installed properly. The jacket of the cable says THHN or THWN.
A: We are happy to help! Please consult with our experts at CableTechSupport@southwire.com for assistance regarding your question.
A: No way, it would melt
A: No. It can't be due to fact this wire is only rated for 120V at 20 amps. Welding machines take a bit more amperage and depending on what model of machine that you have as well. You can look at at the name plate and look at what is the recommended for that that model. Hope this helps.
A: No, it’s far too thin and only carries 20amps.
A: This is not speaker wire. This is for electricity.
A: No. You would need actual speaker wire for speakers (i.e. don't use regular wire like this). Home Depot sells speaker wire and it's a lot less expensive than regular wire.
