This part of IEC 60092 provides the general constructional requirements and test methods for use in the manufacture of electric power, control and instrumentation cables with copper conductors intended for fixed electrical systems at voltages up to and including 18/30(36) kV on board ships and offshore (mobile and fixed) units.
The reference to fixed systems includes those that are subjected to vibration (due to the movement of the ship or installation) or movement (due to motion of the ship or installation) and not to those that are intended for frequent flexing. Cables suitable for frequent or continual flexing use are detailed in other IEC specifications, for example IEC 60227 and IEC 60245, and their uses are restricted to those situations which do not directly involve exposure to a marine environment, for example, portable tools and domestic appliances.
The following types of cables are not included:
- optical fibre;
- sub-sea and umbilical cables;
- data and communication cables;
- coaxial cables.
