I have a few questions concerning amperes :
First, when I have a 4slots buffer, with only 2 batteries, will I have 4 amperes or 2 in my E-net ? I tested it, but got strange results :
- With 2 batteries and cable 2A, it didn't melt : so it should be 2A (it melted with 1A cables)
- With 3 batteries and cable 2A, it didn't melt either, which is strange.. How many amperes are there ?
(Tests made with a single plate bending machine)
Second questions, if I have a 2A network and use 4A cables, will I have 4 losses per meter or 2 ? (With tin insulated cables)
The buffer with 2 batteries will be capable of outputting 2 amperes. The one with 3 batteries will be capable of outputting 3 amperes. However, the bending machine will only request up to 2 amps at once, meaning that in your test, only 2 amps were being sent through the cable at once. Had you added another machine to the system, the buffer would have sent 3 amps through the cable, melting it.
The cable loss is per amp being sent through the cable. So a 16x tin cable that is carrying only 2 amps would have the exact same loss as a 2x tin cable carrying those 2 amps.
