Conductor Requirements for ISO 10133 and ISO 13297 This appendix is reproduced from Annex 'A' (normative) of both ISO 10133 and 13297. Both ISOs are supporting Standards to the Recreational Directive. The use of these recommendations can be used to demonstrate compliance to this Directive. Current Ratings Table A1 gives allowable continuous current ratings in amperes determined for an ambient temperature of 30°C and the minimum number of strands for conductors. Table A1 - Conductor cross-sectional area, allowable continuous current and stranding. Maximum Current in amps for a single conductor at insulation temperature ratings

NOTE: Conductor current ratings may be interpolated for cross sectional areas between those shown in Table A1.

* Conductors with at least a Type A stranding shall be used for general wiring of craft. Conductors with Type B stranding shall be used for any wiring where frequent flexing is involved during use.

For conductors in engine rooms (60c ambient), the maximum current rating in tableA1 shall be de-rated by the factors:-

Multiply maximum current from table A1 by 0.75 0.82 0.86 0.89 1.0

BUNDLING (For a.c. only When more than three a.c. conductors are bundled together the maximum current ratings in Table A1 shall be de-rated by the factor below:Number of conductors bundled 4 to 6 7 to 24 Multiply maximum current from A1 by 0.7 0.6
