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).
How do you calculate AWG wire size?
AWG Wire Sizes (see chart below) AWG: In the American Wire Gauge (AWG) system, wire size diameters can be calculated by applying the formula D (AWG)=.00592 ((36-AWG)/39) inch. For the 00, 000, 0000 etc. gauges you use -1, -2, -3, which makes more sense mathematically than double nought.
What is American Wire Gauge (AWG)?
The AWG – American Wire Gauge – is used as a standard method denoting wire diameter, measuring the diameter of the conductor (the bare wire) with the insulation removed. AWG is sometimes also known as Brown and Sharpe (BS) Wire Gauge.
