    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 02.03, 2017 Defines bare rope-lay-stranded conductors having bunch-stranded members made from round copper wires, either uncoated or coated with tin, lead, or lead-alloy for use as electrical conductors.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This specification covers bare rope-lay-stranded conductors having bunch-stranded members made from round copper wires, either uncoated or coated with tin, lead, or lead-alloy for use as electrical conductors (Explanatory Notes 1 and 2).

    1.2Coated wires shall include only those wires with finished diameters and densities substantially equal to the respective diameters and densities of uncoated wires.

    1.3The values stated in inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. For conductor sizes designated by AWG or kcmil, the requirements in SI units have been numerically converted from corresponding values, stated or derived, in inch-pound units. For conductor sizes designated by SI units only, the requirements are stated or derived in SI units.

    1.3.1For density, resistivity, and temperature, the values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

    1.4This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
