IEC 60092 Cable
IEC60092 standard for electrical installations in ships and fixed/mobile marine applications.
Shipwiring is covered by a number of national standards such as BS6883 and NEK606, and subject to a number of third-party accreditations including Lloyds Register. As an international standard, IEC60092 covers power and instrumentation cables to be used on ships and in mobile marine environments.
The key parts of IEC 60092 in relation to electrical installations include:
|IEC60092-350||General constructional requirements and test methods for power, control and instrumentation cables with copper conductors intended for fixed electrical systems with a voltage rating of up to 18/30(36)kV on board ships and fixed/mobile offshore units. This standard specifically excludes optical fibre, sub-sea and umbilical cables, data and communications cables, and coaxial cables.|
|IEC60092-352||Requirements for the selection and installation of cables used in fixed electrical ststems with a voltage rating of up to 15kV on board ships. Fixed systems are defined as those that are subject to the vibration (due to the movement of the ship) or movement (due to the motion of the ship) and not those intended for frequent flexing.|
|IEC60092-353||Non-radial power cables with extruded solid insulation with a voltage rating of between 1kV and 3kV for use in fixed installations, including cables designed to maintain circuit integrity during fire.|
|IEC60092-354||Single and three-core power cables with extruded solid insulation, conductor screening, and core screening, with a voltage rating range of 6kV to 30kV and used in fixed installations.|
|IEC60092-360||Electrical, mechanical and particular characteristics of insulation and sheathing materials for shipboard and offshore units, power, control, instrumentation and telecommunications cables.|
|IEC60092-376||Screened and unscreened cables for control and instrumentation circuits on ships and fixed/mobile offshore units. These cables have extruded solid insulation with a voltage rating of 150/250V.|
