The following sections show how to determine the permissible line length and cross
sections for the various actuators based on examples.
The examples for actuators connected in parallel apply to the following arrangement:

The line resistances of L2 are equal and can be ignored for L1. Separately calculate the
permissible line lengths L2 for other connections (ring, star-like).

Actuator wiring (three-position)

In three-position actuators, only the situation as presented under AC 24 V is important.
Sizing occurs via lines 1 (G), 6 (Y1), and 7 (Y2).
The table shows the main power consumption of an actuator as well as the permissible
voltage drop.

Determining the line lengths for two actuators GEB13..1 and AC 24 V supply.
Only the currents in line 1 (G) and 6 (Y1) or 7 (Y2) determine the line sizing.
Max. permissible voltage drop = 4% per line (total 8 %).
Consumption = 2 x 3.5 VA = 7 VA.
Line current = 2 x 0.15 A = 0.3 A.
Max. permissible single line length: 280 m at 1.5 mm
