Busbar Cable choice
#1
Hi Folks,  is anyone in the UK using 2.5mm2 T&E to create their busbars?

I intend to use 3 x 2.5mm2 solid core twisted, but I'm also aware about the potential draw from each of my 14s 100p packs when built.

Everyone seems to talk about using 4mm solid core, unfortunately  here in the UK  if I go for 4mm I can't source it as solid core its multi stranded.

Since my understanding is that 2.5mm is rated at 30 amp giving me the potential current carry capacity of 90amps per pack would this be consider to small for each of my packs, I would obviously be using larger cable between each pack, for this I was even thinking of cutting up heavy duty lorry Jump leads does anyone have a concerns on my approach.


Thanks in advance to all you wise one's
