1.1 This Standard applies to multiple-conductor control and instrumentation cables (including thermocouple extension cables) having a voltage rating not exceeding 600 V and intended for installation in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I. The designations for such cables shall be CIC for una rmoured cables, or ACIC for armoured cables.
1.2 This Standard applies to cables rated 600 V, 300 V, and 150 V, and to temperature ratings up to 105°C. This Standard also incorporates specific requirements for high temperature control and instrumentation cables rated 125-250°C.
1.3 This Standard applies to multiple-conductor thermoplastic or thermoset-insulated assemblies, shielded or unshielded, twist ed or cabled, paired or grouped into units, jacketed or unjacketed, sheathed or unsheathed, armoured or unarmoured, and any combinations thereof.
1.4 This Standard incorporates specific requirements for halogen-free limited-smoke control and instrumentation cables.
1.5 This Standard permits the inclusion of additional components, such as optical fiber members and communications wire, used for installation purposes only. No requirements for such components are specified.
1.6 This Standard does not apply to cables intended for internal wiring of electrical equipment, ie, switchboard and equipment wire, or to cables which potentially undergo repeated flexing.
