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 Twin 2 B&S
30°C = 100% capacity (150amp)
40°C = 90% capacity (135amp)
50°C = 76% capacity (114amp)
60°C = 60% capacity (90amp)
70°C = 45% capacity (67.5amp)

Voltage Drop for Twin 2 B&S Cable:
To calculate the voltage drop of Twin 2 B&S copper cable, use the following formula:
Voltage Drop = Length x Current x 0.017
Length = Total length of cable in metres.
Current = Current draw (amps) through the cable.
Area = Cross sectional area of the copper (in this case 32.07mm²)
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 Twin 2 B&S:
How much voltage drop over 10m of Twin 8 B&S with a current draw of 150A?
- 10m x 150A x 0.017 = 25.50
Divide this by 32.07 (cross sectional area of 2 B&S - mm²)
You will have a drop of approximatley .08 Volts over the 10m length
