Notes:

1. Section 310.15(B) shall be refrenced for ampacity correction factors where the ambient temperature is other than 30 C (86 F).

2. Section 310.15(C)(1) shall be refrenced for more than three current-carrying conductors.

3. Section 310.16 shall be refrenced for conditions of use.

*Section 240.4(D) shall be refrenced for conductor overcurrent protection limitations, except as modified elsewhere in the Code.

 

Correction Factors for Ambient Temperature From NEC Table 310.15(B)(1)

Over 30° C, 86° F

For Ambient Temperatures Over 30° C, 86° F, multiply the ampacities shown above by the appropriate factor show below:
