Standard Specification for Concentric-Lay-Stranded Copper Conductors, Hard, Medium-Hard, or Soft
|Publication Date:||1 April 2004|
|ICS Code (Cables):||29.060.20|
This specification covers bare concentric-lay-stran
NOTE 1 - This specification also permits conductors for use as covered or insulated electrical conductors.
NOTE 2 - Sealed conductors, that are intended to prevent longitudinal water propagation and are further covered/insulated, are also permitted within the guidelines of this specification.
For the purposes of this specification, conductors are classified as follows (Explanatory Note 1 and Note 2):
Class AA - For bare conductors usually used in over-head lines.
Class A - For conductors to be covered with weather-resistant (weather-proof), slow-burning materials, and for bare conductors where greater flexibility than is afforded by Class AA is required.
Class B - For conductors to be insulated with various materials such as rubber, paper, varnished cloth, and so forth, and for the conductors indicated under Class A where greater flexibility is required.
Class C and Class D - For conductors where greater flexibility is required than is provided by Class B conductors.
The SI values for density are regarded as the standard. For all other properties, the inch-pound values are to be regarded as standard and the SI units may be approximate.
