    Cool Working out resistance/ohms

    Hi,
    Im waiting on the postie to drop off some geek vape fused ss Clapton.
    SS316L Fused Clapton: 28AWG x 2 + 30AWG
    SS316L Fused Clapton: 26AWG x 2 + 30AWG

    Question: When using a coil calculator do I enter the 28awg to get my number of wraps or the 30awg. And since the internal wire is two strand does that make a difference?

    Cheers

    Use steam engine. Go into wire wizard. Once you click that you want to build a clapton, it will give you the opportunity to put 2x28 as your core. Then you can put the 30 as your wrap.

    Clapton wires are more complex. The total resistance is the resistance of the core with the resistance of the wrap in parallel. Like Rockmoose said use steam engine to work it out - it does all the mathematical stuff for you.

    If you want a more hands-on approach to working with Claptons and have a spool of it or something, take some measurements and work out the true resistance per meter and use that in your calculations. It would probably give you more accurate results than steam engine which is a theoretical answer. Variables such as true wire gauges will mean that the theoretical answer can be different to reality.

    As rockmoose said Steam-engine is your best friend.

    But here is an example for one of your wires to get you started.
