Newton's Table 310-16 Conductor Size Calculator
This program calculates the required ampacity for copper Rev 11/28/2006
Conductors and selects the size of conductor from Table 310-16. XCEL V1.1

Number of current
Load in Ambient Carrying Conductors
Amperes Temperature C in Raceway or cable
200 26-30 4-6
125 Default = 30 Degrees C.
OCPD is Rated for Continuous Load
Select Type of Insulation Temperature Circuit is for multiple Receptacles or Outlets
If circuit is 15, 20, 30, 40, or 50 ampere
