## 3.10.3 Sample cable calculation for users

Assumption:
The cable length to be installed is approximately 150 meters. Users connected to a BUS
connection require a maximum current of 150 mA. The installation should be performed using
telephone cable (cable diameter 0.6 mm = 0.28 mm
telephone cable is a copper cable with a conductivity of k (Kappa) 56 m/Ωmm
Calculation of line resistance
R
= Line resistance
L
U
= max. permissible voltage drop
V
I = Current consumption of all BUS users on a BUS connection (branch).
Calculation of cross-section required
A = wire cross section per connection
R
= line resistance (+12 V DC and 0 V total)
L
k = specific conductance value of copper
L = cable lengths
Determination of number of wires
This means that 6 wires are required in parallel for each connection (+12V DC and 0V).
