Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The table below shows various data including both the resistance of the various wire gauges and the allowable current ampacity based on plastic insulation.
Astk types of armored or metallic cable types AC and MC have an aluminum casing that may be used as a ground conductor, for which it is not necessary to calculate an equivalent wire gauge.
Brown & Sharpe wire gauge
Astmm may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. Already Subscribed to this document. UF-B cable is “underground feeder” cable, which regardless of wire gauge has a solid waterproof grey sheath completely surrounding and filling the space between the conductors, which still have their individual colors.

Alternative ways are commonly used in the electrical industry to specify wire sizes as AWG. Turns of wire is an upper limit for wire with no insulation.

The ratio of these diameters is 1: This atsm also made light strings stiff and unsightly. For conductor sizes designated by AWG or kcmil sizes, the requirements in SI units have been numerically converted from the corresponding values stated or derived, in inch-pound units.

As the voice of the U.
For conductor sizes designated by SI units only, the requirements are stated or derived in SI units. Two conductor cable is available with black and red conductors only for this purpose; the outer sheath is likewise red.

Sizes with multiple zeros are successively larger than No. All wire dimensions and properties shall be considered as b2588 at the internationally standardized reference temperature and all calculations shall be rounded in the final value only. Remember me for one month. Because there are also small gaps between the strands, a stranded wire will ast have a slightly larger overall diameter than a solid wire with the same AWG.
Subscription pricing is determined by: Combining values of the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. Already Subscribed to this document.
If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. Aastm Use and Development. For conductor sizes designated by AWG or kcmil sizes, the requirements in SI units have been numerically converted from the corresponding values stated or derived, in inch-pound units. All wire dimensions and properties shall be considered as occurring at the internationally standardized reference temperature and all calculations shall be rounded in the final value only.
The following editions for this book are also available Combining values of the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
American wire gauge
ICS Number Code For conductor sizes designated by AWG or kcmil sizes, the requirements in SI units have been numerically converted from the corresponding values stated or derived, in inch-pound units.
A of approximately 1. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. A circular mil is the area of a wire one mil in diameter. This specification prescribes the standard nominal diameters and cross-sectional areas of American Wire Gage AWG sizes of solid round wires, used as electrical conductors, and gives equations and rules for the calculation of standard nominal mass and lengths, resistances, and breaking or rated strengths of such wires.
ASTM B258 – 18
Because each successive gauge number increases cross sectional area by a constant multiple, diameters vary geometrically. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Nails, Spikes, and Staples.
For conductor sizes designated by SI units only, the requirements are stated or derived in SI units. Subscription pricing is determined by: In this case, it describes a wire which is equal in cross-sectional area to the total of all the cross-sectional areas of the individual strands; the gaps between strands are not counted. The industry also bundles common wire for use in mains electricity distribution in homes and businesses, identifying a bundle’s wire size followed by the number of wires in the bundle.
