When Do You Use Resistance Wire

May 14, 2018

Resistance wire is a special category of electrical wire used to control the flow of electricity. This type of wire has high resistivity – which makes it better for short wire to convert electrical energy into heat. So, for example, when using resistance wire in a heating element for applications, such as a blow dryer, […]
