New to these forums an just finished my apprenticship..
Just have a quick question..

When selecting cable for small commercial fan motors do you have to take into account the startup current?
The motors usually are around 9.8A FLC and sometimes have a startup of around 30-35A.
Do i need to take this into account when selecting my cable size?

Thanks in advance!!!
