2/0 awg amp rating
2/0 Gauge (AWG) Battery Cable is designed for higher amperage applications with a maximum voltage rating of60 volts DC. 2/0 battery cable can comfortably handle 200 ampsat a cable length of 15 feet. The outside diameter of the cable is aproximately 0.605 inches.

What is the amp rating for AWG wire?
Common US AWG wire gauges and amps ratings AWG Diameter (mm) Diameter (in) Square (mm2) Resistance Copper (ohm/1000m) 00 (2/0) 9.3 0.37 67.4 0.26 000 (3/0) 10.4 0.41 85.0 0.20 0000 (4/0) 11.7 0.46 107 0.16 250 127 34 more rows …
What is the ampacity of 2/0 gauge wire?
The ampacity of the 00 gauge wire is determined primarily by the cross-section. The complete cross-section of 2/0 gauge wire in mm2 is 67.4 mm2. 2/0 gauge wire is thus smaller than 3/0 gauge wire but bigger than 1/0 gauge wire we cover further on.
What is the difference between AWG and ampacity?
In the United States, we use the AWG, otherwise known as the American Wire Gauge system. It defines the diameter, commonly known as the solid round wires. On the other hand, the ampacity defines the highest current a certain type can handle. When looking at the below table, the AWG value is opposite to the diameter.
What does AWG mean in electrical?
American Wire Gauge Conductor Size Table American wire gauge (AWG) is a standardized wire gauge system for the diameters of round, solid, nonferrous, electrically conducting wire. The larger the AWG number or wire guage, the smaller the physical size of the wire. The smallest AWG size is 40 and the largest is 0000 (4/0).
