# 16-14 gauge wire size

• ### What is the difference between 16 gauge and 14 gauge wire?

• 16 – 14 AWG is simply stating that the connector contact recepticle (where the wire is crimped to the contact) can accept wire diameters in this range, see also. Note that a higher AWG size value means a smaller diameter. Makes sense. A bit strange that they use an arrow to imply a range, and that they write the greatest number first.

• ### What does 16/14 AWG mean?

• 16 – 14 AWG is simply stating that the connector contact recepticle (where the wire is crimped to the contact) can accept wire diameters in this range, see also. Note that a higher AWG size value means a smaller diameter. Show activity on this post.

• ### How many amps can AWG wire gauge handle?

• American Wire Gauge standards range from 0000 (which can handle up to 302 amps) to 40 (which can handle up to 0.0137 amps). Most household and commercial wiring demands range from 2 (95 amp maximum) or 3 (85 amp maximum) to 14 (15 amp maximum). In the table below, we outline all of the AWG cable sizes and their unique properties.

• ### What is the diameter of AWG 40 wire?

• For example, AWG 4 is 0.2043 inches in diameter, and AWG 40 is.0031 inches in diameter. The diameter doubles every time the gauge decreases by six levels (e.g., a three-gauge wire has double the diameter of a nine-gauge wire).
