**What thickness is 0 gauge?**

15 U.S. Code § 206 – Standard gauge for sheet and plate iron and steel

Number of gauge | Approximate thickness in fractions of an inch | Weight per square foot in kilograms |
---|---|---|

00 | 11/32 | 6.237 |

0 | 5/16 | 5.67 |

1 | 9/32 | 5.103 |

### 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″.
