    † Ampacities are based on Table 310.16 of the NEC 2020 Edition. Ampacities of insulated conductors rated up to and including 2000 Volts with not more than three current-carrying conductors in raceway, cable or direct buried based on ambient temperature of 30ºC (86ºF). Ampacities have been adjusted for more than three current-carrying conductors based on Table 310.15(C) 1.
