This Technical Report gives guidance and lays down the basic recommendations for the selection and installation of shipboard and offshore unit cables intended for electrical systems used in both essential and non-essential analogue or digital signal communication, transmission and control networks, including types suitable for high-frequency signals (i.e. signals with a frequency of more than 105 Hz). These cables are not suitable for direct connection to low impedance supplies. Where such cables are required, attention is drawn to IEC 60092-353.
Cables intended to have limited circuit integrity (fire resistance) when affected by fire are not covered by this technical report.
Fibre optical cables are not included.
Sub-sea or umbilical cables are not included.
