CAN/CSA-C22.2 No.239-97 (R2006)
Control and Instrumentation Cables
This Standard applies to multiple-conductor control and instrumentation cables
(including thermocouple extension cables) having a voltage rating not
exceeding 600 V and intended for installation in accordance with the Canadian
Electrical Code, Part I. The designations for such cables shall be "CIC", for
unarmoured cables, or "ACIC", for armoured cables.
This Standard applies to cables rated 600 V, 300 V, and 150 V, and to
temperature ratings up to 105°C. This Standard also incorporates specific
requirements for high temperature control and instrumentation cables rated
This Standard applies to multiple-conductor thermoplastic or
thermoset-insulated assemblies, shielded or unshielded, twisted or cabled,
paired or grouped into units, jacketed or unjacketed, sheathed or unsheathed,
armoured or unarmoured, and any combinations thereof.
This Standard incorporates specific requirements for halogen-free limited-smoke
control and instrumentation cables.
This Standard permits the inclusion of additional components, such as optical
fiber members and communications wire, used for installation purposes only. No
requirements for such components are specified.
This Standard does not apply to cables intended for internal wiring of
electrical equipment, ie, switchboard and equipment wire, or to cables which
potentially undergo repeated flexing.
