Ancor safety duplex cable features red and yellow Marine Grade primary conductors (correctly color-coded to ABYC standards) in a white common jacket that is made for easy removal while providing the best abrasion resistance available. Safety Duplex Cable is color coded so that the negative conductor is yellow to avoid confusion with the AC Hot wire which is black. With safety duplex cable there is no confusion, this is for DC use. Sold by the 100 foot roll.

16 awg wire with 105 deg C insulation rating has an ampacity of 25 Amps according to ABYC E11 AP Table 2. That means 25 Amps is the maximum this wire can carry. A copy of the Ampacity table appears in our Blog. In most cases the voltage drop tables give a lower current carrying capacity than the ampacity. For example in a 12 volt system with 10% voltage drop and 25 ft round trip distance from the battery, 16 awg is only good for 10 Amps.
This 16 awg wire takes crimp on connectors that are color coded Blue
