    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the construction, dimensions and test requirements for single- and multicore cables insulated with polymeric materials intended for use at working voltages up to and including 0.6/1 (1.2) kV. It does not apply to polymeric insulated cables for special installations and service conditions or for which there are separate Australian/New Zealand Standards.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies construction, dimensions and tests for single- and multicore cables insulated with polymeric materials intended for use in electrical installations at working voltages up to and including 0.6/1 (1.2)kV.It does not apply to polymeric insulated cables for special installations and service conditions or for which there are separate Australian/New Zealand Standards, e.g. neutral screened cables, welding cables, flexible cords and aerial bundled cables.NOTES: 1 Purchasing guidelines are contained in AppendixA.2 AS/NZS3008.1 should be referenced to assist correct cable size selection for the intended application and installation.
