## What is 23 AWG wire?

Table of Contents

A 23AWG cable is 0.57mm wide, while a 24AWG cable is only 0.52mm wide. So the SMALLER the number, the LARGER the physical cable will be, with more copper inside it. To reduce resistance over the cable and achieve better electron flow, the diameter of the Ethernet cable’s conductor must be increased. .

## What is 24 AWG wire?

24AWG cables are going to be the largest in size compared to 26AWG and 28AWG. The majority of cable you find with this AWG size is going to be solid core cable. This makes them great for longer distances. The maximum distance you can run Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat6A cable is up to 328 feet (100 meters).

**What is AWG 22 wire?**

A 24 AWG wire has a diameter of . 0201 inch, and a 22 AWG wire has a diameter of . 0253 inch. Since the perimeters are simply these numbers each multiplied by pi, we can see the ratio of perimeters without doing that multiplication. The 22 AWG is “bigger” than the 24 by .

**Is Cat6 23 or 24 AWG?**

Cat6 cabling standards typically utilize 23-AWG conductor. That = . 0226 inches in diameter per wire.

### What is 22 AWG in MM?

0.6426mm

Wire Gauge Conversion

21 | 0.0285″ | 0.7239mm |

22 | 0.0253″ | 0.6426mm |

23 | 0.0226″ | 0.574mm |

24 | 0.0201″ | 0.5106mm |

### How much current can 24 AWG handle?

At an ambient temperature of 30°C, 24AWG has a maximum current of 7A. So 2A for a 10ft cable will not be a problem for 24AWG wire.
