  • What is AWG (AWG)?

  • AWG is sometimes also known as Brown and Sharpe (BS) Wire Gauge. The AWG table below is for a single, solid, round conductor. Because of the small gaps between the strands in a stranded wire, a stranded wire with the same current-carrying capacity and electrical resistance as a solid wire, always have a slightly larger overall diameter.

  • What is the smallest AWG size?

  • The smallest AWG size is 40 and the largest is 0000 (4/0). AWG general rules of thumb – for every 6 gauge decrease, the wire diameter doubles and for every 3 gauge decrease, the cross sectional area doubles. Note – WM Wire Gauge, US Steel Wire Gauge and Music Wire Gauge are different systems.

  • What is the AWG number of telephone wire?

  • The higher the number – the thinner the wire. Typical household wiring is AWG number 12 or 14. Telephone wire is typical AWG 22, 24, or 26.

  • What is the AWG of a stranded wire?

  • The AWG table below is for a single, solid, round conductor. Because of the small gaps between the strands in a stranded wire, a stranded wire with the same current-carrying capacity and electrical resistance as a solid wire, always have a slightly larger overall diameter.
