Hello,
I have an ACTRO 24-5 and in the Operating instructions I can read that max operation current for good operation is 40 A. But the wires that come with the motor are 2.5 mm...I think not enough for 40 A.
Can anybody solve this question?
May be I am in a mistake but i can not understand it

Thank you very much

Check this out

My read is that for the short runs involved it is adequate

Section

Thank you
If my diammeter is 2.5 mm it means I have a section of about 5 square mm, and lloking to this table (if i am looking correctly) this cooper wire supports 15 amp...Less than 37 Amp that consumes the Actro motor.

Am I Right?
Thank you.

For short runs it would be from 47 to 51 amps
