|| IEC 60228 ed3.0 withdrawn corrigendum
|| Conductors of insulated cables
||Specifies the nominal cross-sectional areas, in the range 0,5 mm2 to
2 500 mm2, for conductors in electric power cables and cords of a
wide range of types. Requirements for numbers and sizes of wires and
resistance values are also included. These conductors include solid
and stranded copper, aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors in
cables for fixed installations and flexible copper conductors.
The standard does not apply to conductors for telecommunication
The applicability of this standard to a particular type of cable is
as specified in the standard for the type of cable.
Unless indicated to the contrary in a particular clause, this
standard relates to the conductors in the finished cable and not to
the conductor as made or supplied for inclusion into a cable.
Informative annexes are included giving supplementary information
covering temperature correction factors for resistance measurement
(Annex B) and dimensional limits of circular conductors (Annex C).
The principal changes with respect to the previous edition are as
a) the consolidation of material from IEC 60228A;
b) addition of a definition for nominal cross-sectional area;
c) an increase in the range of conductor sizes in Tables 1 and 2;
d) addition of a note that solid aluminum alloy conductors, having
the same dimensions as aluminum conductors, will have a higher
e) strengthening of the recommendations for dimensional limits of
compacted stranded copper conductors.
