ACG90 and ACGWU90 apply to multi-conductor insulated cables only.
This Standard specifies requirements for cables having insulated conductors in sizes 14 AWG to 2000 kcmil. The maximum conductor temperature rating is 90 °C.
In CSA Standards, shall is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; should is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; may is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard; and can is used to express possibility or capability. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
