Standard Specification for Compressed Round Stranded Copper Conductors, Hard, Medium-Hard, or Soft Using Single Input Wire Construction
|Publication Date:||1 February 2013|
|ICS Code (Wires):||29.060.10|
This specification covers stranded conductors made from round copper wires, either uncoated or coated with tin, lead, or lead alloy for general use in insulated conductor assemblies for electrical purposes. These conductors shall be composed of one or more roller shaped or die closed layers of helically laid wires using the single input wire (SIW) methodology. (see Note 1 and Explanatory Note 1)
NOTE 1-Sealed conductors which are intended to prevent longitudinal water propagation and are further covered/insulated, are also permitted within the guidelines of this specification.
The values stated in inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
For density, resistivity, and temperature, the values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
