12 gauge wire is required to be protected with a 20 amp max breaker. 10 gauge is required for a 30 amp breaker.
AWG # 4 copper.
You listed no gauge wire. This is the required breakers.14 gauge - 15 amp12 gauge - 20 amp10 gauge - 30 amp8 gauge - 40 amp
Depends on the size of the service. 100 amp service will require 3 gauge, 150 amp service will require 1/0 gauge, and 200 amp service will require 3/0 gauge.
14 gauge will handle it with a 15 amp breaker. If you use 12 gauge use a 20 amp breaker.
#6 wire is good for 65 Amps as long as it is type THHN.
1/0 gauge intrance wire.
Use AWG 1/0 gauge copper.
Service entrance wire size required is # 2. That assumes the wire is a short run to the service panel.
3 AWG in copper and 2 AWG in Aluminum.
on a 4000 watt amp the best gauge wire woul be between 2 and 0
That is 10 amp wire.
3 AWG in copper and 2 AWG in aluminum.
The ampacity or amp rating of all wire is rated by the size of the wire. NM (non-metallic sheathing) wire is no different. In household wiring 14 gauge wire must go on a 15 amp breaker/ 12 gauge goes on a 20 A and 10 gauge goes on a 30 Amp.
My memory says correct gauge for 100 amp service is 1 0 (that is, one ought) I could be wrong, check with your power company or building inspector.
Number 2 American Wire Gauge
here is a wire gauge calculator which will answer your questions http://www.powerstream.com/Wire_Size.htm
10 gauge wire will only run up to 30 amps
14 American Wire Gauge (AWG).
I would run 1/0 gauge.
#6 AWG COPPER. Depending on distance
