How do I calculate what size wire I need?
- Multiply the resistivity (Ω•m) of the conductor material by the peak motor current (A), the number 1.25, and the total length of the cable (m).
- Divide the result by the voltage drop from the power source to the motor.
- Multiply by 1,000,000 to get the result in mm2.
