Wiring Safety - Super Volcano

I’d like to add the super volcano hotted to an enlarged Lulzbot Taz 6. I’ve got everything set up mechanically, but am wondering if I need to increase the gauge of wire in the wiring harness leading to the toolhead? Lulzbot uses 24awg wire for the harness that I’ve extended to 1.5m, and the power supply is 24V.

Thanks!

Hi Ben,

The 24V super volcano heater draws 3.9A so make sure the gauge is rated to about 5A to be safe.
