What is the size of the 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). 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.
What is the American wire gauge standard?
The American Wire Gauge standard, also less commonly known as the Brown Sharpe wire gauge, is a standardized wire gauge system used since 1857 for the diameters of round electrically conducting wire. AWG wire charts use a numbering system where a smaller number is larger wire with more copper conductors.
Where can I find more information about wire size selection?
The Circuit Wizard, at circuitwizard.bluesea.com, is a resource for a more detailed treatment of wire size selection for DC circuits. It allows you to input detailed information including wire insulation temperature rating and other derating factors.
