This document specifies the required characteristics and test procedures for fire resistant or fire-proof electrical cables for use in aircraft electrical systems. These cables should also maintain a specific surface resistance when they are subjected to a flame of 1 100 °C after 5 minutes (fire resistant) or 15 minutes (fire-proof) exposure.
The insulation of these cables is designed to withstand aircraft voltages at a frequency not exceeding 2 000 Hz. Unless specified by individual product standards the maximum demonstrated ac voltage of rating of these cables is 115 V rms (phase to neutral) and 200 V rms (phase to phase) and a long term temperature of up to 260 °C (ambient temperature plus temperature rise in conductor).
