Solid bare copper wire — also known as ground wire — is a type of electrical wire used in residential, industrial and commercial wiring. The specifications of 20 AWG, Solid Bare Copper benefit electrical transmission.
20 AWG, Solid Bare Copper Features
This solid bare copper wiring has a rating of 20 on the American Wiring Gauge (AWG) scale. This rating puts this wire in the middle of the available wire thickness range. It has one conductor to carry the electrical current.
The 20 AWG, Solid Bare Copper wiring has a solid wire construction, so it is made of one single thick wire. Solid wire can withstand higher currents and carry the current for longer distances due to low current dissipation.
Uses for 20 AWG, Solid Bare Copper
Solid bare copper wires are often worked into larger cables — like underground feeder (UFB) and Romex® cables — as the ground wire. In metal-clad (MC) cables, solid bare copper has a thermoplastic, high-heat, nylon-coated (THHN) insulation for identification purposes.
Other applications for 20 AWG, Solid Bare Copper wiring include the following:
- Magnet wires in motors and transformers
- Nonelectrical applications like arts and crafts
- Residential wiring
- Overhead distribution and transmission
- Telecommunications wiring
