  • Cricuits in Single Conduit

    I support CNC machine tools in a production facility. I have two 480 V 3Ph circuits to run approx 200ft from the electrical panel. One circuit is 70Amp the other 30Amp. Can I run both of these circuits in a single conduit? Taking into account my supposed voltage loss, what would be the best sized conductors for these circuits?

    there are many voltage drop calculators on the net,

    and here is a simple to use conduit fill calculator,

    some depends on how much voltage drop one is willing to deal with, in that distance,

    and if you do a web search there are many more voltage drop calculators and conduit fill calculators,

    one thing it may be better to use a size larger conduit than jsut the mimum size that will meet codes, for either future needs or jsut to make the pull easier,
