    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the requirements for conductors in insulated electric cables and flexible cords used for general wiring cables for land installations and, in the case of copper conductors only, for ships' wiring. The Standard does not apply to material used for the manufacture of conductors.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for conductors in insulated electric cables and flexible cords used for general wiring cables for land installations and, in the case of copper conductors only, for ships' wiring.This Standard applies particularly to conductors for those types of cable and flexible cord to which the relevant Australian or Australian/New Zealand Standard makes cross-reference. This Standard is not necessarily limited to conductors of such cables and cords and should be applied, wherever practicable, to cables designed for general and special purposes. The conductors specified here do not apply to the following:(a) Magnet winding wire including litz wire (see AS/NZS 1194.1).(b) Mineral-insulated metal-sheathed (MIMS) cables (see AS/NZS 3187).(c) Cables intended for use at audio or higher frequencies, e.g. telecommunication cables.(d) Welding cables (see AS/NZS 1995).NOTE: The method of calculation used to establish the conductor maximum d.c. resistance values is given in Appendix A.
