• ### What is the amp rating for 12 AWG wire?

• What is the amp rating for 12-gauge wire? At 120 or 240 volts, a 12 gauge wire (AWG, American wire gauge, copper wire) has a constant load rating of 16 amps. At any other voltage it will overheat and break. The amp rating of wire determines how many amperes it can safely carry while maintaining its integrity.

• ### How many watts can a 14 AWG wire handle?

• What number of watts can a 14 AWG wire deal with? Utilizing the essential electrical components “Watts = Volts x Amps,” the wire presents the equation Watts = 120 x 20 with a results of Watts = 2,400. You may load 2,400 watts onto your 14-gauge wiring for a 120-volt circuit.

• ### What is the diameter of a 10 AWG wire?

• diameter (in) = .005 92(36 – AWG) 39. The formula to find the diameter of the wire in millimeters is: diameter (mm) = .127 92(36 – AWG) 39.

• ### What is the current rating of 12 AWG wire?

• Rating. *National Electric Code specifies that the overcurrent protection device (e.g. a fuse or breaker) must not exceed 30A for 10 AWG wire, 20A for 12 AWG wire and 15A for 14 AWG wire.
