This standard covers low voltage battery cable intended for use at a nominal system voltage of 60 V DC (25 V AC) or less in surface vehicle electrical systems. The tests are intended to qualify cables for normal applications with limited exposure to fluids and physical abuse.
Rationale:This document is being revised to include the following:
a. Add a separate "Winding" test
b. Consolidate all mandrels into one table
c. Specify mandrels as a multiple of "Outside Cable Diameter"
d. Add a section to define the "Oven"
e. Revise the "Temperature and Humidity Cycling" test
f. Update test fluids and sources
g. Change text from "Low Tension" to "Low Voltage"
h. Remove cable types STE and SGE
