CABLES, SPECIAL PURPOSE, ELECTRICAL: LOW-TENSION, HEAVY-DUTY, SINGLE CONDUCTOR AND MULTIPLE CONDUCTOR, SHIELDED AND UNSHIELDED, GENERAL SPECIFICATION FOR
|Publication Date:||6 October 2020|
This specification covers two types (shielded and unshielded) of insulated, heavy-duty, single and multiconductor, electrical cables for use in low-tension circuits (see 6.1).
This specification is being retained as a defense detail specification because of environmental requirements, including operational temperatures from -65 °F to 250 °F. Cable procured by this... View More
This specification is being retained as a defense detail specification because of environmental requirements, including operational temperatures from -65 °F to 250 °F. Cable procured by this specification is primarily intended for tank-automotive applications where it may be subjected to severe environmental conditions. Applications for types I and II and class B cables are shown.
This cable is normally used in applications not requiring radio interference suppression or where such suppression is accomplished by methods other than shielding of cables.
This cable is normally used where shielding of cables for radio interference suppression is required.
This cable should be used only in connector to connector situations involving the entire cable assembly. It should not be used in situations involving removing of the sheath and exposure of the insulated conductor to ambient environment.View Less
