    The question I'm asking would be under the 2017 NEC. It concerns charging cables from a level 3 electric vehicle charger. They operate at 150 to 850 volt with a maximum output current of 600 amp DC per specifications. They ran several hundred feet to vehicle dispensing units from the main charger. It does look like there is any protection on the conductors from the charger. How does the code address this?
