Conductor and Stranding Data

Image of multiple wire containing exposed copper strands.

Stranded Conductors provide better flexibility and longer flex life. From a practical standpoint, stranded conductors offer longer service life than solid conductors. For a given size of a conductor, increasing the number of strands while reducing the size of the individual strands will increase the conductor flexibility.

Wire Gauge Conversion Table

Image on up close wire with exposed copper strands.

American Wire Gauge (AWG) sizes may be determined by measuring the diameter of the conductor (the bare wire) with the insulation removed. Refer to the Wire Gauge Conversion Table for dimensions. When choosing wire gauge, the distance the wire must run and the amperage it will be expected to carry must be determined first.
