Scope and object
This part of the IEC 60092 series is applicable to shipboard and offshore non radial field power cables with extruded solid insulation, having a voltage rating of 0,6/1 (1,2) kV and 1,8/3 (3,6) kV intended for fixed installations.
Cables for use in circuits requiring resistance to fire are included.
The various types of power cables are given in 5.1. The constructional requirements and test methods shall comply with those indicated in IEC 60092-350, unless otherwise specified in this standard.
The object of this standard is:
- to standardize cables whose safety and reliability is ensured when they are installed in accordance with the requirements of IEC 60092-352 or IEC 61892-4;
- to lay down standard manufacturing requirements and characteristics of such cables directly or indirectly bearing on safety;
- to specify test methods for checking conformity with those requirements.
