# ampacity of 20 awg

A 20 awg wire is rated to carry between2.5 amp up to 10 amps. What does 22 AWG stand for? American Wire Gauge (AWG) is the standard way to denote wire size in North America. In AWG, the larger the number, the smaller the wire diameter and thickness.

• ### What is the Maximum amps for a 20-gauge American Wire Gauge (AWG)?

• The maximum amps for power transmission for a 20-gauge American Wire Gauge (AWG) wire is 1.5. This is based on a guideline from the Handbook of Electronic Tables and Formulas for the ampacity or the copper wire current carrying capacity for American Wire Gauge sizes.

• ### 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).

• ### 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 ampacity of a 19 gauge wire?

• As per usual with odd AWG wires between 10 and 20, the 19 gauge wire is used for its tensile strength and not as an electrical wire. This is also the first AWG wire with below 1 mm diameter; 0.912 mm, to be exact. The cross-section of a 19 gauge wire is 0.653 mm2 and there is no rated ampacity numbers.
