Electrical Wiring In The United Kingdom - Residential Wiring - Selection of Conductors and Circuit Breakers
... be done taking into consideration both maximum voltage drop allowed at the load end and also the current carrying capacity of the conductor ... size and voltage drop tables are available to do the selection, which is based on the load current supplied ... The choice of circuit breaker is also done based on the normal rated current of the circuit ...
Circuit Breaker - Standard Current Ratings
... International Standard--- IEC 60898-1 and European Standard EN 60898-1 define the rated current In of a circuit breaker for low voltage distribution applications ... The commonly-available preferred values for the rated current are 6 A, 10 A, 13 A, 16 A, 20 A, 25 A, 32 A, 40 A, 50 A, 63 A, 80 A, 100 A, and 125A (Renard series ... The circuit breaker is labeled with the rated current in amperes, but without the unit symbol "A" ...

... compared to standard downstream ports, where a portable device can only draw more than 100 mA current after digital negotiation with the host or hub ... A charging port supplies up to 500 mA at 5 V, up to the rated current at 3.6 V or more, and drop its output voltage if the portable device attempts to draw more than the rated current ... With charging downstream ports, current passing through the thin ground wire may interfere with high-speed data signals ...

Famous quotes containing the words current and/or rated:

    Without the Empire we should be tossed like a cork in the cross current of world politics. It is at once our sword and our shield.
    William Morris Hughes (1864–1952)

    This is the essential distinction—even opposition—between the painting and the film: the painting is composed subjectively, the film objectively. However highly we rate the function of the scenario writer—in actual practice it is rated very low—we must recognize that the film is not transposed directly and freely from the mind by means of a docile medium like paint, but must be cut piece-meal out of the lumbering material of the actual visible world.
    Sir Herbert Read (1893–1968)
