Publication Date: 7 November 2019
Status: active
Page Count: 127
scope:

This recommended practice provides guidance for wire and cable installation practices in generating stations and industrial facilities. It covers installation of cable in trays, conduit, duct banks, wire ways, gutters, and other raceway systems. It covers medium voltage power cable, low voltage power cable, control cable, instrumentation cable, coax/triax cable, fiber optic cable, data communications cable, and other specialty cables used in power plant and industrial environments. This document may also be of benefit for the proper installation of wire and cable systems in commercial, governmental, and public facilities when the same or similar wire or cable types and raceways are used.

Purpose

The purpose of this recommended practice is to provide guidance on how to help prevent installation damage, which is the single greatest cause of wire and cable failures. Cable failures can lead to power outages and equipment downtime, resulting in inconvenience at best, lost production, or worse, a safety issue. This document provides information for engineers, technicians, and trades/crafts people to avoid potential wire or cable damage during installation, testing, and modification of cable systems at generating stations and industrial facilities.
