Electrical cables for all your automotive electrical wiring needs
Whether it is rewiring a box trailer, relocating the battery to the boot, or wiring in a stereo, we have the electrical wire and electrical cable to suit. Whether it is single core, twin core all the way to 5 and 7 core variants we can supply the right automotive cable to finish the job and give you the peace of mind of quality wiring. Tested to endure a range of environments means that our cables and wires are particularly suited for automotive applications.
As an integral part of your vehicle, your electrical wiring has been developed and tested by the manufacturer to withstand heat, cold, rain and a whole host of conditions. When it comes to adding a set of air horns, a pair of driving lights or an electrical accessory to your vehicle you can trust our range of electrical cable to be available in the configuration you require but also have the able to withstand the arduous conditions your vehicle faces.
Wiring repairs on your vehicle is fraught with many pitfalls, and when confronted by bad connections, broken wires or a host of other reasons you can see why using the right electrical wire is necessary to alleviate these problems. Naturally automotive wire differs from household electrical wire and the various wire thicknesses and conductivity of these wires makes them appropriate or inappropriate for varying automotive applications. Units and applications such as electrical motors draw significant power and as such require larger guage wires to guard against this voltage drop. Smaller applications such as sensor or signal wires only require a smaller guage wire but even then need to be of sufficient gauge to adequately supply the power necessary. There are plenty of tables online to provide a useful cross reference to the wire size and amp requirements so as to ensure you get the right electrical cable for your job.
For good quality cabling it is best to use an OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) construction of cable to ensure longevity and less chance of electrolysis. The process of electrolysis happens when electricity is passed through cable and is exposed to air in its travels. This then reduces the conductivity and causes a greenish tint to the wire when cut open.
Stocking such brands as Narva, OEX and Redarc mean their industry expertise and knowledge provide you the highest quality electrical wire and cables for all your automotive requirements. Repco hold not just the right electrical cable but the widest range of electrical connectors and terminals as well as a diverse array of flashers & relays for all your electrical projects. When it comes time to doing the job, using the right crimping tool ensures a solid connection with a minimum of fuss and hassle.
