    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the construction of cables for fixed apparatus, armoured high voltage cables, feeder cables, machine cables and mine shaft winder cables for underground use in coal mines.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies the construction of cables used in underground coal mines.This Standard does not apply to reeling and trailing cables, which are covered by AS/NZS 1802, cables for use in IS circuits and data, communication and control cables unless specifically covered.NOTE: Guidelines on information that should be supplied with enquiries or orders are provided in Appendix A.
