I regret not, but if they were supplied as part of the inverter package Sterling should know or if an installer supplied and fitted them they will know. Otherwise use a micrometre to measure the diameter of a single strand, then count the number of strands and look the CSA and current rating up in a cable catalogue. For instance Vehicle Wiring products 35 sq mm cable as 680/0.26 (680 strands each 0.26mm diameter)rated at 240 amps. Now as your inverter requires 180 amps and then a volt drop calculation to derate the cable for the length of run this may well be what has been used, but you can not just assume this is the case. VWP list this as Welding cable. Tony Brooks
