Racewayfill Calculator

for non compact conductors
by electrician2.com
This program calculates the number of same size conductors using the .8 roundoff method. In the Auto Mode this program limits the fill to 40 per cent for over 2 conductors, 31 per cent for only two conductors, and 53 percent for one conductor. Note: THWN, THHN, and THWN-2 have the same areas. RHH, RHW, and RHW-2 without coverings and THW-2, THW, and THHW have the same areas. RH, RHH, RHW, and RHW-2 with covering have the same areas.
