60 V and 600 V Single Core Cables
- Ground Vehicle Standard
This document has been declared "Stabilized" and will no longer be subjected to periodic reviews for currency. Users are responsible for verifying references and continued suitability or technical requirements. New technology may exist.
This SAE Standard specifies the test methods, dimensions, and requirements for single core 60 V cables intended for use in road vehicle applications where the nominal system voltage ±60 V DC (25 V AC). It also specified additional test methods and/or requirements for 600 V cables intended for use in road vehicle applications where the nominal system voltage is >60 V DC (25 V AC) to ±600 V DC (600 V AC). Where practical, this standard uses ISO 6722 for test methods, dimensions, and requirements. This standard covers ISO conductor sizes which usually differ from SAE conductor sizes. It also covers the individual cores in multi-core cables. See ISO 6722 for "Temperature Class Ratings".

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.
