It is entirely dependent on the voltage supplied to the motor.
At 230 V (wye connection to motor), rated current is 80 A.
At 460 V (wye), rated current is 40 A.
At 600 V (wye), rated current is 31 A.
Different cable sizes required for each rating (for minimum cross-section) ... however, cable sized for 80 A will certainly do the job for the higher voltage ratings, assuming it is insulated for the appropriate voltage.
