I wanted to give you a heads up that the new Duelund 600V DCA20GA tinned-copper tone wire is now available at Parts Connexion.
The price of the 600V Duelund DCA20GA is $5.99 USD per meter, but is on sale now for an introductory period for $3.99 USD per meter.
The 600V DCA20GA tinned-copper tone wire uses the same stranded tinned-copper tone wire conductors as the regular DCA20GA tinned-copper tone wire that I wrote about in my review for Positive Feedback in Issue 92, which is constructed using 26 strands of 0.15mm diameter tinned-copper wire.
Until now, all of the Duelund DCA tinned-copper tone cables / wires used the same oil-soaked and baked cotton dielectric, but Frederik at Duelund also wanted to add a 600V DC-rated line of DCA tinned-copper wires that could be used as hookup wire in electronics where higher voltages are present, as in power supplies, for example.
The new 600V Duelund dielectric that Frederik developed is called PolyCAST. Per the Parts Connexion description, PolyCAST is “… a unique thermoplastic resin composite, which emulates Duelund’s “Signature” CAST process”, which means it is similar to the deluxe CAST damping material that is used in the Duelund CAST capacitors, inductors, and resistors.
Frederik sent me some of the new Duelund 600V DCA20GA tinned-copper tone wire to try in various applications, so I’ll be reporting on that as I get a chance to try it.
I’ll be giving the Duelund 600V DCA20GA tinned-copper tone wire a try in the Duelund-Altec Project that is in the works now, and I’ll likely try making some interconnects with it, as I am also curious how it sounds as a lower-voltage signal cable.
Also, very soon the Duelund 600V DCA12GA tinned-copper tone wire will be available, so I’ll let you know as I hear more about that.
Ok, that’s it for now!
As always, thanks for stopping by, and may the tone be with you!
