French translation:section / capacité des câbles
Explanation:
It seems to be referring to the current-carrying capacity of the cables, which is directly related to their cross-sectional area.

You can use 'section' if it is expressed in mm², but if it is expressed in Amps, you will need to use 'capacité', I think
