WHAT CABLE TO USE IN sq mm

Please note that if there is a problem obtaining for example 90 sq mm cable, simply use 2 x 50 sq mm or 3 x 35 sq mm. The cable is simply copper, and all you require is the copper. It does not matter if it is one cable or 10 cables as long as the cross-section adds up. Performance of any product can be improved by thicker cable, so if in doubt round up.
