Definitions for "American Wire Gauge"
Keywords:  awg, gauge, diameter, wire, mil
A measure of the thickness of copper, aluminum and other wiring in the U.S. and elsewhere. Copper cabling typically varies from 18 to 26 AWG. The higher the number, the thinner the wire. The thicker the wire, the less susceptible it is to interference. In general, thin wire cannot carry the same amount of electrical current the same distance that thicker wire can.
(AWG) A wire diameter specification. The smaller the AWG number,. the larger the wire diameter
A system of measuring the size of wire. The smaller the wire the larger the gauge. For Example: 1-4 gauge wire is very thick and commonly used for high-current battery cables, while 14-18 gauge wire is very thin and commonly used for low-current wiring harnesses.
