IEC 60228 Cable

The International Electrotechnical Commission’s IEC60228 standard covers the nominal cross-section areas for the conductors of various insulated cables.

IEC60228 covers solid and stranded copper, aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors in cables for fixed installations and flexible copper conductors. It also sets out the conductors requirements in terms of resistance values.

IEC 60228 covers the following international standard conductor sizes:

Conductor Cross-Sectional Area Size
0.5mm2 6m2 70m2 300m2 1200m2
0.75mm2 10m2 95m2 400m2 1400m2
1mm2 16m2 120m2 500m2 1600m2
1.5mm2 25m2 150m2 630m2 1800m2
2.5mm2 25m2 185m2 800m2 2000m2
4mm2 50m2 240m2 1000m2 2500m2

The applicability of IEC60228 to a particular type of cable is as specified in the standard for the type of cable. This standard does not apply to conductors in telecommunication cables.
