This standard covers ultra-thin wall low voltage primary cable intended for use at a nominal system voltage of 60 VDC (60 VAC rms) 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. This standard covers SAE conductor sizes which usually differ from ISO conductor sizes.
SAE J1678 has been revised to; (1) remove the reference to an ignition coil in section 3.14 and redefine use as an insulated small conductor for signal, low current or power applications, (2) clarify cable types in Figure 1 as “not all types are commercially available”, (3) add a cross-linking test as shown in Figure 2 and section 6.17, (4) reformat Figure 5, (5) inserted Figure 13 to clarify the temperature and humidity cycles and transition zones, (5) removed Figure C1 from the document, (6) all figures; appendix and equation references were reviewed and added as required in the text.

The scope of the Cable Standards Committee includes the development of standards for automotive cable used in passenger cars and light duty trucks. The scope includes all voltage rating up to but not including ignition cable. Additionally, the committee strives to harmonize SAE and ISO standards by establishing uniform test methods, dimensions, & performance requirements.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
