American Wire Gauge is a standardized wire gauge systems defining the diameters of conductive wires. The AWG tables usually are for a single, solid and round conductor. As for the contact size, the higher the gauge or AWG number is, the smaller the wire diameter is. For example, the AWG 0000 (or 4/0) has a diameter of 11.68mm when AWG 40 has a diameter of 0.09mm.
