What is this standard about?

PAS 5308-2 specifies requirements for and dimensions of PVC insulated control and instrumentation cables in multicore and multipair construction which are not covered in the equivalent European standard.

Who is this standard for?

  • Manufacturers and designers of PVC insulated cables
  • Testers, suppliers and users of these cables
  • Electricians
  • Electrical engineers
  • Regulators/local authorities
  • Health and safety executives
  • Organizations specifying high voltage use such as petrochemical plants

Why should you use this standard?

PAS 5308-2 outlines requirements for PVC insulated control and instrumentation cables in multicore and multipair construction, with or without screens, and optionally incorporating single wire armour, not covered in the European standard for control and instrumentation cables, BS EN 50288-7.

In particular it covers circumstances where higher voltages are encountered and as such specifies cables that are suitable for more demanding applications, for example, in petrochemical plants.

The cables are suitable for operation at voltages up to and including 300 V r.m.s. core to earth and 500 V r.m.s. core to core (i.e. 300/500 V). These cables are not primarily intended for direct connection to a low impedance source, such as the public electricity supply.
