8 Jul electrical specifications of ASTM F [4]. Ground cable assemblies shall have an ampacity greater than or equal to that of No. 2 AWG copper. ASTM Standard F was originally written with the intent of covering temporary protective grounds to be used on overhead power lines. The standard was bas. Abstract– During implementation of a maintenance program that was intended to check compliance of field grounding devices with ASTM F, field personnel.

Ferrules for Temporary Protective Grounds. Comments No comments made yet. However, it appears that F removed the acceptance of a compatible shrink installed over cable and astm f855 as a means of cable restraint at least since the edition.

A nut on either side of the terminal is tightened to trap the ferrule in place. Ferrule Grades Cable ferrules are classified astm f855 two criteria: Pressure-type terminal connections use a plain eye bolt inserted through a hole in the clamp. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

Be the first to submit a comment. The above current values are based on electromechanical test values. He can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. The astm f855 difference astm f855 each type is the temperature rating of the insulation and stranding of the conductor.

Astm f855 ratings assume the grade of lowest graded component see Grade 1 to Grade 7 Clamps Clamp grades 1 through 7 establish minimum requirements for physical strength and electrical characteristics in withstand rating, ultimate rating and continuous current, strength yield and ultimate strength.

While not part of the F standard, the nine styles can be unofficially grouped astm f855 three basic terminal types: The DC component asymmetry drops off quickly because of I2r losses in the circuit. For asrm article, we revised the guidance according to the revision of F The intent of the standard is to provide astm f855 for manufacturers.

Shrouded-type ferrules are designed to be used with ASTM-type grounding cable. This astm f855 is commonly referred to as the infinite buss theory. This DC offset asymmetry creates the initial high current in the first cycles astm f855 a short circuit.

See Appendix X2 for details. TPG testing is done on complete assemblies.

The conductor astm f855 for each grade of ferrule also corresponds to the minimum single cable size specified for the clamp of the equivalent grade rating. Wednesday, 21 February Train the Trainer Not Logged In Member?: The narrow part of the sleeve is the cable connector that is crimped onto the conductor strands. If astm f855 protective ground installed in an equipotential arrangement has too much resistance, it will not protect workers.

Ferrules Cable ferrules are astm f855 compressed onto the cable end to protect the stranding of the cable when installed in a connecting terminal. In the first few cycles of a short circuit, there is an asymmetrical astm f855 in the current flow. To meet ASTM standards, temporary personal protective grounds must use multistranded flexible cable conductor installed in a rated clamp using protective cable ferrules. That is where preambles to the standards, interpretations, CPLs and consensus standards are needed.

Astm f855 is the rating used to determine the proper application of the clamp to the anticipated fault current. Type I has a hot-stick eye and Type II comes fitted with a hot stick.

Assemblies that astm f855 been subjected to these shall not be re-used. There are several methods of arriving at the total asymmetry of the fault current. It is not permissible to make a stranded conductor connection directly to astm f855 clamp.

In 29 CFR Resistance in the protective ground increases current across the worker in a fault.
