**The cable must have a wire gauge sufficient to the amperage of the subpanel—a 100-amp subpanel requires #4 copper wires, for example.**

Thereof, What is the ampacity of a AWG US 1 0 wire?

Also to know is, How many amps can 1 0 gauge wire handle?

Subsequently, question is, How many amps is #6 wire good for? NM, TW, & UF WIRE (Copper Conductor) SE CABLE (Copper Conductor)

———————————— —————————

12 AWG – 20 AMPS 6 AWG – 65 AMPS

10 AWG – 30 AMPS 4 AWG – 85 AMPS

8 AWG – 40 AMPS 2 AWG – 115 AMPS

6 AWG – 55 AMPS 1 AWG – 130 AMPS

Also, How many amps can 1 0 wire carry?

## What is the ampacity of 4 AWG wire?

## What is a 1/0 wire?

The number in front of the “/” is how many zeros the gauge is. 1/0 is 0 AWG, 2/0 is 00 AWG, 3/0 is 000 AWG and so on with more zeros being thicker wire.

## What size wire do I need for a 100 amp sub panel?

You need a 3-3-3-5 copper SER cable to carry 100 amps (that’s three #3 gauge for the two hot wires and the neutral and a #5 gauge for the ground).

## What size wire do I need to run a 100 amp subpanel?

#4 copper wires

## What size aluminum wire do I need for 100 amp service?

## What amperage is #6 wire good for?

Amperage Capacities for Standard Non-Metallic (NM) Cable

## What is bigger 1 0 AWG or 2 0 AWG?

The bigger the AWG size (number), the smaller the conductor is. … The term ‘aught’ refers to wires that are 1/0 AWG or larger, with the “/0” part being called aught. For example, 1/0 AWG (0) is called “one aught” and 2/0 AWG (00) is called “two aught.”May 22, 2018

## What wire do you use for a 200 amp service?

## What size wire should be used for 100 amp service?

You need a 3-3-3-5 copper SER cable to carry 100 amps (that’s three #3 gauge for the two hot wires and the neutral and a #5 gauge for the ground).

## How many amps can 6mm wire carry?

Cable size Rating in Amps

6mm 47

## Can I use 6mm cable for a 9.5 kW shower?

9.5kW is either 39A or 41A depending on the voltage it is rated at. 6mm cable is 47A when installed in the most favourable conditions. So 6mm could be used, depending on how it is installed. However it would be usual to use 10mm which would allow the fitting of a higher rated shower either now or in the future.

## Will #2 wire fit in a 100 amp breaker?

#2 romex would only be good for 95 amps. If protected with a 100 amp breaker be prepared to show load calcs that load is 95 amps or less.
