  • What is the relationship between wire size and amp rating?

  • Take a look at our ampacity chart to discover the relationship between wire size and amp ratings. Amperage is a measure of the electrical current flowing through a circuit. Current is measured in amperes or amps. You must use the correct size wire for the amperage requirement of the circuit to prevent the wire from over heating.

  • How are wires sized?

  • How Wires Are Sized. Wire is sized by the American Wire Gauge (AWG) system. Wire gauge refers the physical size of the wire, rated with a numerical designation that runs opposite to the diameter of the conductors鈥攊n other words, the smaller the wire gauge number, the larger the wire diameter. Common sizes include 14-, 12-, 10-, 8-, 6-,…

  • What is amperage in electrical circuits?

  • Amperage is a measure of the electrical current flowing through a circuit. Current is measured in amperes or amps. You must use the correct size wire for the amperage requirement of the circuit to prevent the wire from over heating. The number and type of electrical devices connected to a circuit determine the amperage requirement of the circuit.
