Circuit protection

All IBM machines have their own protection. The power line cords between unit and power distribution panel must be protected according to the size of the conductor. If no other figures are available use the table below.

To calculate KVA or Amp. use formula below: 

KVA = V x A x 1.73
I (3x380V) = KVA x 1.52 (A per phase)
