Conductor Gauge and Circuit Breaker Sizing Chart


This conductor and circuit breaker sizing table are only valid for the following assumptions:

  1. No more than 2 conductors are bundled together inside of a sheath or conduit outside of engine spaces.
  2. Each conductor has 105° C temp-rated insulation.
  3. No more than 5% voltage drop allowed at full motor power based on published product power requirements



NOTICE:  Wire Extension Length refers to the distance from the batteries to the trolling motor leads. Consult website for available thrust options. Maximum Amp Draw values only occur intermittently during select conditions and should not be used as continuous amp load ratings.
