SAA Wiring Rules 2000. Current carrying capacity of cables.
For some days I have been trying to find this table on the 'Net with no success.
The range required is for domestic installations, 240 and 415 volts, 10-150Amps, enclosed and unenclosed.
If anybody knows of it would you point me in its direction, please?

The wiring rules are AS/NZS-3000, not 2000, which is why you maybe having trouble with the searching. The cable tables are found in AS/NZS-3008.
One of the cable manufacturers provides a useful brochure that maybe of use.

Thanks, you blokes, for all your responses. Sorry I have not come back sooner.
chrisp, my 2000 was another of my, too many, Senior Moments. Thanks.
NC Archer, I am still licensed but retired, of course. A year ago, we had to move off the farm to be near an hospital, are living with a son. Our books are still in cartons.........somewhere!
A son and a grandson are licensed but are away on holidays and I do not like to go to their places and rummage round looking for their Rules books.
The Sub-mains here to the shed are 7/.036 which, in my day, was rated at 27 Amps. I was wondering what we would need to use if additional load were connected, say a total all up of 50 Amps.
From Table C5, it looks like 10mmsq will do the job.

A bit off topic but it interesting that we are forbidden from doing any electrical work yet over in the US they just have to take a short course and can then wire their house, plus their system is more complicated given they have a split phase 220V circuit and a 110V single phase circuit.
Given the price of getting an electrician (last one we had was $120 an hour plus travel) it might force people to do some electrical work of their own...
