inductance, Q&A for kWeld, wire gauge, wire gauge to diameter, wire length -

Calculating the inductance of the kWeld circuit Your kWeld spot welder came with a set of stock wires which many are tempted to change. We encourage the DIY mentality and love the fact that you rewire masters share your mods and experiences with the community on kWeld World. This article is written to help you understand the impact changing wire length and diameter (gauge) can have on inductance. Firstly, please understand that too much inductance can damage the kWeld unit. Increasing the wire length and related inductance also reduces the maximum current your kWeld can handle safely. Hence, in the...
