    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.
