 cross-sectional area Explanation:The size of the wire, expressed in terms of its cross-sectional area. "los conductores de sección superior a 6 mm2 deberán conectarse por medio de terminales adecuados, de forma que las conexiones no queden sometidas a esfuerzos mecánicos." http://www.coitiab.es/reglamentos/electricidad/reglamentos/i... "An often asked question: How can you calculate the diameter of a round wire d to the circle cross section surface or the cross-section area A (slice plane) to the cable diameter d?" http://www.sengpielaudio.com/calculator-cross-section.htm

part

Explanation:
one of the transaltions in the Oxford Dictionary for "sección"

I think this might be it versus "section" or "area" because it would be more specific in line with Instruction ITC-BC-19.
