CSA - CAN/CSA-C68.3-M92
Shielded and Concentric Neutral Power Cables Rated 5-46 kV
|Publication Date:||1 March 1992|
This Standard Applies to the materials, construction, and testing of one- to four-conductor shielded and single-conductor concentric neutral cables incorporating cross-linked polyethylene or ethylene-propylene rubber insulation with optional thermoplastic or thermoset jacket and optional metal sheath or armour. These cables are intended for transmission and distribution of electrical energy for use either indoors or outdoors.
This Standard applies to cables rated 5-46 kV with a 100% insulation level and rated 5-35 kV with a 133% insulation level.
This Standard applies to power cables capable of continuous operation at a maximum conductor temperature of 90 degrees C (see Appendix B).
This Standard also applies to steel wire armoured (SWA) shielded cables used for vertical risers and mine shafts.
This Standard does not preclude the use of other components such as insulations designated as tree retardant, filled strand, moisture-impervious laminated sheaths, individually covered steel wire armour, or optical fibres provided that the product meets the performance requirements of this Standard.
Test procedures for these specific components are not included in this Standard.
