  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 This Standard covers single-conductor, nonshielded cables rated 5000 or 8000 volts, 90°C, described in Table 1.1 that are intended solely for use as factory-installed wiring in equipment (internal wiring), in industrial applications where such cable systems are maintained by trained personnel, not as Type MV.

    1.2 These requirements do not cover cables that are intended for direct installation in buildings or structures in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC), NFPA 70.

    1.3 The final acceptance of these cables is dependent upon their use in complete equipment that conforms with the standards applicable to such equipment.
