CURRENT CARRYING COMPARISON (AT 30°C AIR AMBIENT TEMPERATURE – PROTECTED FROM THE SUN)

FEATURES: If you can drop down one or two sizes of cable to carry the same current then you also drop down lug sizes, cable diameter and bending radius.

NOTE: For a more detailed and complete range of current carrying capacity, please refer to AS/NZS 3008.1.2.2010 tables 7, 8 & 9. The below current carrying capacities of three single core 0.6/1 KV cables used as fixed wiring which are not subject to flexing in normal use. Cables may be operated in that current range when not exposed to mechanical damage.
