What is the size of American Wire Gauge?
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 does AWG mean in wire gauge?
Wire Gauge Chart AWG specifies the size of a wire using an integer called the Gauge. American Wire Gauge system assigns numbers from 0 to 44. In this list, 0AWG is having the largest diameter and 44AWG has the smallest diameter.
Where can I find the wire gauge chart?
To see the latest wire gauge chart, you can see ASTM B258-18. You can also use AWG gauges to describe stranded wire. For a stranded wire, the AWG gauge is the sum of the cross-sectional areas of each strand.
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:
