IEC 60228 Cable
The International Electrotechnical Commission’s IEC60228 standard covers the nominal cross-section areas for the conductors of various insulated cables.
Standard IEC60228 covers solid and stranded copper, and aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors in cables for fixed installations and flexible copper conductors. It also sets out the conductors’ requirements in terms of resistance values.
IEC60228 conductor sizes
IEC 60228 covers the following international standard conductor sizes:
