IEEE P532 DRAFT
Draft Guide for Selecting and Testing Jackets for Power, Instrumentation, and Control Cables
|Publication Date:||1 April 2020|
This guide covers the selection and testing of jackets for power, instrumentation, and control cables. It is written for those responsible for optimizing cable design and performance. The purpose is to present a reasonably complete picture of the role of jackets so that the subject can be approached in an orderly and organized manner. An effort has been made to avoid the highly technical language and theory commonly used by electrical engineers and chemists to discuss the more detailed application of jackets.
The purpose of this guide is to provide cable users guidance in the selection of jackets and protective covers to optimize cable design. A secondary purpose is to present a reasonably complete picture of the types and functions of jackets so that the user can approach the subject in an orderly and logical manner.
