8351: Power Cord

Hi,

I need a longer power cord (about 2,5m) for my 8351s, because the ones that came with it are a little bit to short.

They are H05-F 3x0,75mm2. Should I better get 3x1,5mm2? A friend told me I should take 3x2,5mm2, because of better performance.

What do you as the manufacturer recommend? Is there any sense in taking such a huge diameter?

A standard 3x0,75mm^2 power cord will be sufficient for 2,5m length. Larger wire diameters are only required for much longer cable lengths, for example 20 meters or more.
