## What size wire do I need for 800 amps?

Conductors – 800 Amp Conductors – Material. The smallest conductor size for a 240 Volt – 800 amp service will range from #6 AWG for a short 20′ run to 600 MCM for an extended run of 500′ based upon a 3% voltage drop for a 1-Phase-3-Wire load circuit in PVC.

## Will 8 gauge wire carry 50 amps?

Fifty-amp Copper Wire 8 THWN can be used. No. 6 copper wire can support up to 55-amp at a temperature of 60 degree Celsius.

## How many amps can 6 3 wire carry?

6/3 is normally protected with a 60-amp breaker. Since there are no 55-amp breakers, code allows you to round up to the next larger standard size.

## Can 10 gauge wire handle 60 amps?

Old(s) Fart. Not only is #10 wire on a 60 amp breaker a bad idea, it is completely against code. Also, the 60 amp breaker is completely unnecessary. A 30 amp breaker (which IS correct for #10 wire) is adequate for this compressor.

## What size wire is good for 50 amps?

For a maximum of 50 amps, you’ll need a wire gauge of 6. Fifty amp breakers are most often used to power many different appliances.

## Can I use a 50 amp breaker for a 40 amp stove?

Can I use a 50 amp breaker for a 40 amp stove? You can use a 50 amp, or any-amp, breaker on any circuit that already has that full (amperage) capability. Provided the wiring is rated for at least 50A, then yes. The breaker will trip if there’s a short, and will do so before the wiring catches fire.

## What size wire do I need for a 25 amp circuit?

12 gaugeA 12 gauge wire is rated for 25 amps. NEC only allows for it to be protected at a max of 20 amps (unless following an exception for motor loads).

## What size wire should I use for a 20 amp circuit?

A 20-amp circuit, protected by a 20-amp breaker or fuse, must be served by 12-gauge or 10-gauge wire.

## What size wire is rated for 100 amps?

When it comes to the lines connecting master and secondary panels, where the line will carry as much as a full 100 amps, use a 2-gauge non-metallic sheathed electrical cable. The cable must contain one or two hot wires depending on your needs, one neutral wire, and one ground wire. Each wire should be 2-gauge in size.

## What is 6 AWG wire used for?

Considered a general purpose gauge of wire by the National Electrical Code, 6 AWG wire is used in everything from lighting installations to hot tubs.

## What size aluminum wire is good for 60 amps?
