**How is mm2 cable measured?**

Measure the diameter with calipers. Place an electrical wire between the jaws of a set of Vernier calipers. Slide the movable jaw around the cable without compressing the insulation and read the measurement where the line from the moving indicator meets the stationary scale for a diameter.

**What gauge is 0000 AWG wire?**

4/0 or 0000 AWG gauge wire is the thickest wire used in the standard AWG (ie. Brown & Sharpe wire gauge) system. It is one of the two AWG wires that have a 10+ mm diameter (4/0 AWG wire to mm equals 11.684 mm).

**What is the ampacity of a 20 gauge wire?**

If you translate 20 AWG to mm, you are dealing with 9.266 mm thick AWG wire. The ampacity of the 00 gauge wire is determined primarily by the cross-section. The complete cross-section of 2/0 gauge wire in mm2 is 67.4 mm2. 2/0 gauge wire is thus smaller than 3/0 gauge wire but bigger than 1/0 gauge wire we cover further on.

### What is ampacity of wire?

Wire Size & Amp Ratings Ampacity is the maximum current that a conductor can carry continuously under the conditions of use without exceeding its temperature rating. Current is measured in amperes or “amps.” You must use the correct size wire for the current (load) requirement of the circuit to prevent the wire from overheating.
