Derating Factors

Derating Factors for Bundling of Single Core Cables per JASO D609

As the number of cables bundled together increases, the current capacity of each cable in the bundle decreases as per the following chart.

Cable Bundle Qty = Derating Factor for 00 B&S

  • 1 x Cable = 100% capacity (292amp)

  • 2 x Cables = 80% capacity (234amp)

  • 3 x Cables = 70% capacity (204amp)

  • 4 x Cables = 60% capacity (175amp)

  • 5 x Cables = 55% capacity (160amp)

  • 6 x Cables = 50% capacity (146amp)

  • 7 x Cables = 50% capacity (146amp)


Derating Factors for Ambient Temperatures °C per JASO D609

As the ambient temperature increases, the current capacity of the cable decreases as per the following chart.

Ambiebt Temperature °C = Derating Factor for 00 B&S 

  • 30°C = 100% capacity (292amp)

  • 40°C = 90% capacity (263amp)

  • 50°C = 76% capacity (222amp)

  • 60°C = 60% capacity (175amp)

  • 70°C = 45% capacity (131amp)

Voltage Drop for 00 B&S Cable: 

To calculate the voltage drop of 00 B&S copper cable, use the following formula:


Voltage Drop = Length x Current x 0.017
                                     Area (64.15)


Length = Total length of cable in metres.

Current = Current draw (amps) through the cable.

Area = Cross sectional area of the copper (in this case 64.15mm²)



  • Formula only applies to copper at 25°C, voltage drop increases with both ambient and cable temperature, at approx 0.4% per °C.

  • 0.017 - This multiplication factor only applies to copper


Example for 00 B&S:

How much voltage drop over 10m of 00 B&S with a current draw of 292A?


  • 10m x 292A x 0.017 = 49.64


Divide this by 64.15 (cross sectional area of 00 B&S - mm²)


  • 49.64/64.15 = 0.7738V


You will have a drop of approximatley 0.77 Volts over the 10m length
