How do you calculate MM2 wire size?

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.

What is MCM in wire size?

thousands of circular mils
MCM is an abbreviation for thousands of circular mils, an old measurement of wire gauge. 1 MCM = 1 kcmil = 0.5067 square milimeters. A mil is 1/1000 inch.

What gauge is 6.7 mm wire?

Wire Gauge Chart

Wire Gauge Washburn & Moen Steel Wire Gauge
00 .331″ 8.4 mm
0 .307″ 7.8 mm
1 .283″ 7.2 mm
2 .263″ 6.7 mm

How do you convert MCM to mm2?

1000 circular mils = 1 MCM or 1 kcmil, and is (approximately) equal to: 0.5067 mm2, so 2 kcmil ≈ 1 mm2 (a 1.3% error)

What is mm2 cable?

Cross sectional area of the conductor – sometimes called ‘cable size’ Given as mm², it describes the total cross-sectional area of the copper conductor. Cable will be sized 1 mm², 2 mm², 4 mm² etc. and may be written as 1 mm, 2mm, 4mm. This is not the diameter of the cable.
