American Wire Gauge

A North-American standard for measuring the thickness of copper and aluminum wires used in electrical and communication installations. The gauge is related to the diameter of the wire. As the gauge number increases, the diameter reduces. So, a 12 AWG wire is thinner than a 4 AWG wire.
