El Power Consumption Amps

EL WIRE POWER CONSUMPTION CHART

Example: In the top section we start off with the 0.9mm El Wire and here is what each Column Heading Means:

Inverter Voltage - This is the inverters input voltage

12VDC - This is under Inverter Voltage This means this is a 12VDC El Wire Inverter

MIN Feet - This is saying the inverter we tested can power a minimum of 1-Foot of El Wire

MAX Feet - This is saying the inverter we tested can power a maximum of 100-Feet of El Wire

MIN AMPS - This is the reading based on the Maximum Number of Feet the Inverter could power

MIN mA - This is the reading based on the Maximum Number of Feet the Inverter could power

MAX AMPS - This is the reading based on the Maximum Number of Feet the Inverter could power

MAX mA - This is the reading based on the Maximum Number of Feet the Inverter could power

WATTS - This is the reading based on the Maximum Number of Feet the Inverter could power
