Maximum Current in Aluminum and Copper Wire Diagram Example - Maximum Current in
6 mm Aluminum Wire 2
6 mm aluminum wire is somewhere between 2 . To be on the safe side we use AWG #9 and #10 AWG #10 (the smallest one) in the figure above and estimates the maximum current to be approximately . 30 amps Copper and Aluminum - Max. Current Diagram in Metric Units
