#2 Insulated

Similar to #1 wire, #2 Insulated has an even a wider range of electrical wire that could fall into its classification. Most all wire that has smaller strands than a 12 AWG solid wire or a less defined recovery than #1 insulated will be classified as #2. This includes but not limited to 8 through 12 AWG stranded and any 14 through 30 AWG wire. Most telecommunication wire will also be placed into this category such as cat4, cat5, cat6, ethernet and standard phone cords. Another example are most 110 outlet cords and extension cords.
