  • Panel wire diameters and coloring

    Hi,

    What do you guys use as wiring colors and diameters in the panel itself?

    For the mains, its pretty clear I use the same as the cable itself, so 1,5mm2 VOBst for 16A lines and 2,5mm2 for 20A. Blue / Brown here in Belgium

    Correct me when wrong:

    - 24V power distribution (1,5 mm red / black)
    - Loxone link (1,5 mm blue / white)
    - Tree (1,5 mm green / white)
    - Data (1,5 mm orange)

    Or is 1,5 mm overkill?

    Thanks!

    "Or is 1,5 mm overkill? "

    for Power no, for everything else yep. Loxlink and Tree should be twisted pair, like CAT, EIB or maybe even pone cable.

      Hi,

      for all the data we are using the 0,5mm cable (twisted for Loxlink and Tree - like Okenny said).

        OK thanks both! The twisted pair is indeed what Loxone seems to recommend.

        Strange thing is that if you look at loxone's own panel at their main offices you see thick cable, I think 1 mm2 thick (because of the red connections).

        Actually all nice looking panels you see on the internet seem to have 1 mm2 cables:

        But, twisted pair it will be for me

        Thanks for the input!

          Also the (quite) good idea is to use the twisted pair wires from the CAT7 cable.
