Table 1 defines cable length guidelines for the various wire sizes that may be used for wiring low-voltage (<30 V) input and output wiring.

Table 1. Cable Length Guidelines for Recommended Wire Sizes for Low-Voltage (<30 V) Inputs and Outputs
Guidelines Wire Size/Gauge and Type Maximum Cable Length and Type Assumptions
A 1.5 mm2 (18 AWG) stranded copper 457 m (1,500 ft) twisted wire 100 mV maximum voltage drop

Depending on cable and the connected input or output device, you may have to define an offset in the setup software for the input or output point.

0.8 mm (20 AWG) stranded copper 297 m (975 ft) twisted wire
0.6 mm (22 AWG) stranded copper 183 m (600 ft) twisted wire
N/A (24 AWG) stranded copper 107 m (350 ft) twisted wire
B 1.5 mm2 (18 AWG) stranded copper 229 m (750 ft) twisted wire 100 mV maximum voltage drop

Depending on cable and the connected input or output device, you may have to define an offset in the setup software for the input or output point.

0.8 mm (20 AWG) stranded copper 137 m (450 ft) twisted wire
0.6 mm (22 AWG) stranded copper 91 m (300 ft) twisted wire
N/A (24 AWG) stranded copper 61 m (200 ft) twisted wire
C See Figure 1 to select wire size/gauge. Use stranded copper wire. See Figure 1 to determine cable length. Use twisted wire cable. N/A
