Posted By Topic: PEC Identification in a Multicore Cable

Jan 21 2018 09:36

AS/NZS 3000, Clause (b) allows for the sleeving of the screen on a multi core cable Green/Yellow to use as the PEC.

AS/NZS 3000, Clause (a) allows for the identification of the active and the neutral conductors on a multicore cable to be identified by the numbers on the cable cores.

With regards to AS/NZS 3000, Clause (b) If you do not want to use the screen on a multicore cable as the PEC and you want to use one on the numbered cores how do you achieve that.
Can you sleeve one of the numbered cores green/yellow as this is not clear in the standard.
