How to interpret if data for cable cross-section is expressed as M6, M8, M10, M12?

Published date: 26 March 2019

Such a data can be found in instruction sheet, as in attachment for instance.

The values expressed as Mxx (e.g. 
M6,M10, M12) means there is a hole in busbar for connecting the cable with cable lug.
So max cable cross-section then depends on the cable lug you buy. 
If you buy cable lug e.g. Cu120 - 12 (see picture) it means that this lug is dedicated for 120mm2 cable and has hole prepared for mounting using M12 bolt.
