  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 This Standard specifies the requirements for distribution (power) cables, and control and signal cables for installation aboard marine vessels, fixed and floating offshore petroleum facilities, and mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs), in accordance with industry installation standards and the regulations of the authorities having jurisdiction. The cables are single or multi-conductor, with or without metal armor and/or jacket, and are rated 300 V – 35 kV.

    1.2 These cables are not intended for use in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70. Cables that also meet the requirements for use with the NEC may be additionally marked with the appropriate "Type" designation from the NEC.
