NEC Code Verifications

The calculation power of AmpCalc eliminates the restrictions inherent with the fixed configurations in the NEC Code.  However, the following tables demonstrate that AmpCalc computes ampacities very close to the Code values when the same system configurations and cable properties are utilized.

The following tables are in PDF format and can be downloaded simply by clicking on the desired table.  If you do not have the Adobe Acrobat reader on your computer which you will need in order to read these files, the latest version can be downloaded for free at the Adobe Acrobat download website.
