What are the different gauge wires?
We鈥檙e going to simplify every wire鈥檚 characteristics (mm, mm2, amps) 鈥?from AWG 4/0 to AWG 40 gauge wire 鈥?in a systematic and concise easy-to-understand way. Example: Diameters (in mm) for AWG wires from 10 gauge wire to 28 gauge wire. This overview article about AWG gauge wires will give you all the info you need about wire sizing.
What is the diameter of an N-gauge wire?
The n gauge wire diameter dn in inches (in) is equal to 0.005in times 92 raised to the power of 36 minus gauge number n, divided by 39: The n gauge wire diameter dn in millimeters (mm) is equal to 0.127mm times 92 raised to the power of 36 minus gauge number n, divided by 39:
What is the diameter of a 1/0 gauge wire?
This zero gauge wire has a diameter of 8.251 mm. If you use the mm diameter of the 1/0 gauge wire, you can calculate the full cross-section in mm2 to be 53.5 mm2. This is quite a thick wire still, also used in welding and heavy battery appliances. How many amps can a 1/0 gauge wire handle?
How thick is a 6 gauge wire?
Thickness-wise, the 6 AWG gauge wire has a diameter of 4.115 mm. That鈥檚 about 1/6 of an inch. What really determines the amperage, apart from the metal used to make a wire out and temperature, is the cross-section. 6 gauge wire has a cross-section of 13.3 mm2. This allows for a sub-100 amp electric current flow.
