1.1 This guide provides direction and recommends cable splicing materials and methods that would satisfy the requirements of extensive cable splicing in modular ship construction and offers sufficient information and data to assist the shipbuilder in evaluating this option of cable splicing for future ship construction.
1.2 This guide deals with cable splicing at a generic level and details a method that will satisfy the vast majority of cable splicing applications.
1.3 This guide covers acceptable methods of cable splicing used in shipboard cable systems and provides information on current applicable technologies and additional information that the shipbuilder may use in decision making for the cost effectiveness of splicing in electrical cable installations.
1.4 This guide is limited to applications of 2000 V or less, but most of the materials and methods discussed are adaptable to higher voltages, such as 5-kV systems. The cables of this guide relate to all marine cables, domestic and foreign, commercial or U.S. Navy.
1.5 The values stated in SI units shall be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are inch-pound units and are for information only.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the application of regulatory limitations prior to use.
