Conductors of insulated cables

Executive summary

Requirements for conductors of insulated electric power cables.


This European Standard 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 applicability of this standard to a particular type of cable is as specified in the standard for the type of cable.

This standard relates to the conductors in the finished cable and not to the conductor as made or supplied for inclusion into a cable.

In this standard, informative annexes are included giving supplementary information covering temperature correction factors for resistance measurement and dimensional limits of circular conductors.

The standard does not apply to conductors for telecommunication purposes.

History and related standards

This European Standard supersedes BS 6360:1991 which will be withdrawn on 1st December 2007.

In this edition of the standard the main objects have been to incorporate IEC 60228A into it and maintain a simplified yet informative standard so far as is compatible with technical and economic considerations.
