What is American Wire Gauge (AWG)?

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

American Wire Gauge is a standard wire gauge system used in the United States for the measurement of diameter of non-ferrous, electrically conducting wires.  “Gauge” here means the diameter.  It is the American standard way of classifying wires and cables.  Non-ferrous metals includes aluminum, copper and many other metals, however it is most often used to copper household wiring and phone wiring. 



Typical household wiring AWG number would be 12 or 14.  A telephone wire is usually 22, 24 or 26.  As the gauge number goes higher, the diameter of the wire becomes leaner.  As denser wire conveys more current, since it has less electrical impedance beyond a given length, thick wires are the best suited for long distances.
