Re: [Electronics_101] AWG?
- At electrical supply house (where they sell circuit
breaker and conduits etc) they sell this square piece
of sheet metal with various size holes in it. You
stick your wire in to find out which is the closest
size. The holes are marked in AWG.
As far as current goes .. the wires are rated as to
how much current will cause X degrees of temperature
increase. The exact amount of degrees (standard)
escapes my memory though.
Hope that helps.

I have some cables which does not have any specs
printed on it. Each wire consists of about 20 strands,
and together they make up a bundle of diameter 1 mm
(0.4 in) This would be equivalent to what AWG, or
alternatively what kind of current can it carry?
