2015-12-18
CURRENT
J2891_201512
This SAE Recommended Practice covers the design and application of a 120 VAC single phase engine based auxiliary power unit or GENSET.

Auxiliary Two Conductor Electrical Power Connector for Truck-Trailer High Power Jumper Cable

2015-11-24
CURRENT
J3082_201511
This SAE Standard provides the minimum requirements for high power two conductor jumper cable plug and receptacle for truck-trailer jumper cable systems. It includes the test procedures, design, and performance requirements. This document covers receptacles rated at more than 30A (Ampere) up to and including 150A and is intended for a single circuit with one power conductor and one common return conductor. Single conductor high current connectors are not recommended for future designs because of inadequate ground return through 5th wheel / king pin. Cable size selection is to be made by the vehicle OEM for specific applications and the specific voltage drop requirements of those applications. This SAE Standard covers two variants of high power two conductor connections: a heavy duty version with horizontally aligned pins, typically for lift-gate battery charging and a medium duty version with vertically aligned pins: typically for loads such as power tarpaulins.

Positive Temperature Coefficient Overcurrent Protection Devices (PTCs)

2014-12-03
CURRENT
J2685_201412
This SAE Recommended Practice defines the test conditions, procedures, and performance requirements for PTC (positive temperature coefficient of resistance) overcurrent protection devices. PTCs are typically either polymeric (PPTC) or ceramic (CPTC). It is important to note battery voltages versus powernets/system voltage versus max battery voltages: (12 V/14 V/16 V, 24 V/28 V/32 V, and 36 V/42 V/58 V). All voltages are DC. These devices are typically rated with a maximum operating voltage, which for vehicular systems need to be 16 V (for 12 V batteries), 32 V (for 24 V batteries), and 58 V (for 36 V batteries/42 V powernets). PTC devices are considered to be self-resetting after responding to overcurrent conditions and after such condition has been removed from the affected circuit containing the PTC.

Primary Single Phase Nominal 120 VAC Wiring Distribution Assembly Design—Truck and Bus

2014-11-24
HISTORICAL
J2698_201411
This SAE Recommended Practice covers the design and application of primary on-board wiring distribution system harnessing for surface vehicles. This document is intended for single phase nominal 120 VAC circuits that provide power to truck sleeper cab hotel loads so that they may operate with the main propulsion engine turned off. The power supply comes from alternative sources such as land-based grid power, DC-AC inverters and auxiliary power generators. The circuits may also provide power to improve vehicle performance through charging batteries or operating cold-weather starting aids.

Recommended Practice for Identification of Standardized Truck and Tractor Electrical Circuits

2014-02-21
HISTORICAL
J2191_201402
This SAE document defines a recommended practice for implementing circuit identification for electrical power and signal distribution systems of the Class 8 trucks and tractors. This document provides a description of a supplemental circuit identifier that shall be utilized in conjunction with the original equipment manufacturer’s primary circuit identification as used in wire harnesses but does not include electrical or electronic devices which have pigtails. The supplemental circuit identifier is cross-referenced to a specified subsystem of the power and signal distribution system identified in Section 5.

Seven Conductor Cable for ABS Power - Truck and Bus

2013-02-01
HISTORICAL
J2394_201302
This SAE standard establishes the minimum construction and performance requirements for seven conductor 1/8-2/10-4/12 cable for use on trucks, trailers and converter dollies. Where appropriate, the standard refers to two types of cables, (Type F and S, described later in the standard), due to the variation in the performance demands of cables used in flexing and stationary applications. While the document’s title refers to ABS Power to differentiate the document from the SAE J1067 standard that it supersedes, the scope applies to both the primary green cable for powering ABS and lighting and the yellow auxiliary cable of the same construction.
