This SAE Standard covers low voltage primary cable intended for use at a nominal system voltage of 60 VDC (25 VAC) 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.
The standard has been updated with the following changes:
Updated 2.1.1 and 2.2.3.
Updated Section 5 with Note 6 added to crosslinking test.
Updated references to appendix.
Relocated 5.5 and revised Table 5 to limit size to SAE Number 8.
Revised 6.2 language to read easier.
Expanded 6.3 to include new cable types and temperature classes.
Added 6.4 test method and requirements.
Revised 6.5, 6.6, 6.10, 6.11, and 6.12 language to read easier.
Revised Tables 8, 9, and 10 to include all cable types.
Updated references to figures and relocated after method.
Added reference and corrected equation.
Removed Appendix C.

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.
