### What is a 4 0 cable?

The larger the AWG number or wire guage, the smaller the physical size of the wire. The smallest AWG size is 40 and the largest is 0000 (4/0).

### What kind of wire do I need for a 200 amp service?

The Short Answer: Like with aluminum, you’ll need a #4/0 copper-clad aluminum wire for a 200 amp service.

What size comes after 00 gauges?

7/16″
When you get to 0g, the next size is 00g (pronounced “double zero gauge”). 00g is equal to about 3/8 of an inch. After 00g, we run out of gauge sizes, so we use fractions of an inch instead. The next size after 00g is 7/16″.
