Re: How long Cable run?

Mine is 450m and we used 16mm2 cable.

If you have used 10mm2 cable then the volt drop will be 4.0 mV/A/m. So at 20A over 160m you will be losing 12.8V.

With 16mm2 cable the volt drop is 2.5 mV/A/m giving you a volt drop of 8V at 20A over 160m.

The thicker the cable the lower the volt drop.
