Thanks Larry, another interesting point of view.

the drawing calls for an 18 AWG and looking @ AC 43.13-1b (par11-47/Page 11-15, Table 11-3) the CB for a 18 Awg is 10 Amp value.

Problem solved ?

Good point of view Mark, thanks.

But 225A is only COM and 4.2 Amp is only for COMM connector, and for that connector the drawing says 10Amp CB with 18AWG.
