    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies construction, dimensions and tests for single-core and up to 4-core and earth multicore polymeric insulated and oversheathed cables up to and including 16 mm2 conductor size intended for fixed applications in power and lighting circuits in installations at working voltages up to and including 450/750 V.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies construction, dimensions and tests for single-core and up to 4-core and earth multicore polymeric insulated and oversheathed cables up to and including 16 mm2 conductor size intended for fixed applications in power and lighting circuits in installations at working voltages up to and including 450/750 V.Insulated unsheathed cables are not included in this Standard (refer to AS/NZS 5000.1). This Standard does not apply to specialized polymeric insulated cables for which there are separate Australian/New Zealand Standards, e.g. flexible cords.NOTE: Purchasing guidelines are contained in Appendix A.
