# How do you convert MM2 to AWG?

## How do you convert MM2 to AWG?

AWG is the US standard that defines the cross-sectional areas and diameters for solid, round electrical wire and is based on the number of dies required to draw down the raw copper to the appropriate size….Metric to AWG Conversion.

Metric Size (mm2 cross-sectional area) AWG Wire Gauge Size
0.08 28
0.14 26
0.25 24
0.34 22

## What is the relation between AWG and MM2?

The other caveat is the above table is based on stranded cable (the vast majority of cables are made up of stranded conductors)….A Simple Guide on Cable AWG to Metric Conversions.

### What size is 22 gauge wire in MM?

Wire Gauge Conversion

Wire Number (Gauge) A.W.G. or B&S (Inches) A.W.G. Metric (MM)
22 0.0253″ 0.6426mm
23 0.0226″ 0.574mm
24 0.0201″ 0.5106mm

### How do I know if my wire is 12 or 14-gauge?

Here’s a simple visual. Twelve gauge is about the thickness of a nickel, and 14-gauge is about the thickness of a dime. Also, look at the breaker for the circuit in question to see if it’s a 15-amp or a 20-amp breaker. A 20-amp circuit requires wire that’s 12-gauge or larger.

How many amps can a 22 AWG wire carry?

The maximum amperage for a 22-gauge wire is . 92 amps for power transmission, according to the Handbook of Electronic Tables and Formulas for American Wire Gauge. For amperage higher than . 92 you will require a lower-gauge, or thicker, wire.

#### How do I know what gauge wire my car is?

Wire gauge is determined by the cross-section area. American replacement wire is based on the American Wire Gauge System (the larger the number, the smaller the wire diameter). By stripping off a bit of insulation, you can measure the wire package diameter with a caliper or a micrometer.
