Applicable cables and the wiring length

Select a recommended cable size to ensure that the voltage drop will be 2% or less.
If the wiring distance is long between the inverter and motor, the voltage drop in the main circuit wires will cause the motor
torque to decrease especially at a low speed.
The following table indicates a selection example for the wiring length of 20 m.
• 400 V class (440 V input power supply (with 150% rated current for one minute))


For the FR-A846-01800(55K) or lower, it is the gauge of a cable with the continuous maximum permissible temperature of 75°C (HIV cable (600
V grade heat-resistant PVC insulated wire), etc.). It assumes a surrounding air temperature of 50°C or lower and the wiring distance of 20 m or
shorter.
For the FR-A846-02160(75K) or higher, it is the gauge of the cable with the continuous maximum permissible temperature of 90°C or higher.
(LMFC (heat resistant flexible cross-linked polyethylene insulated cable), etc.). It assumes a surrounding air temperature of 50°C or lower.

For the FR-A846-01160(45K) or lower, it is the gauge of a cable with the continuous maximum permissible temperature of 75°C (THHW cable).
It assumes a surrounding air temperature of 40°C or lower and the wiring distance of 20 m or shorter.
For the FR-A846-01800(55K) or higher, it is the gauge of a cable with the continuous maximum permissible temperature of 90°C (THHN cable).
It assumes a surrounding air temperature of 40°C or lower. (Selection example for use mainly in the United States.)

For the FR-A846-01160(45K) or lower, it is the gauge of a cable with the continuous maximum permissible temperature of 70°C (PVC cable). It
assumes a surrounding air temperature of 40°C or lower and the wiring distance of 20 m or shorter.
For the FR-A846-01800(55K) or higher, it is the gauge of a cable with the continuous maximum permissible temperature of 90°C (XLPE cable).
It assumes a surrounding air temperature of 40°C or lower. (Selection example for use mainly in Europe.)

The terminal screw size indicates the size of terminal screw for R/L1, S/L2, T/L3, U, V, W, P/+, N/-, P1, and a screw for earthing (grounding).
The line voltage drop can be calculated by the following formula:
Line voltage drop [V]=
Use a larger diameter cable when the wiring distance is long or when it is desired to decrease the voltage drop (torque
reduction) in the low speed range.
NOTE
• Tighten the terminal screw to the specified torque.
A screw that has been tightened too loosely can cause a short circuit or malfunction.
A screw that has been tightened too tightly can cause a short circuit or malfunction due to the unit breakage.
• Use crimping terminals with insulation sleeves to wire the power supply and motor.
