Insulated Cable Engineers Association (ICEA)
More than 60 cable standards documents created and maintained by ICEA.
The Insulated Cable Engineers Association (ICEA) develops cable standards for the electric power, control and telecommunications industries. Some communication cable standards were developed jointly with the Telecommunications Wire & Cable Standards Technical Advisory Committee (TWCS TAC), while much of the power and control cable coincides with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or National Electric Manufacturers Association (NEMA) specifications. The extent of the ICEA guidance on insulated cable includes materials, performance, test methodology, measurement and instrumentation.
The ICEA Standards Service includes metrics and specifications on the following engineering topics:
- Characteristics of insulated cable
- Physical and electrical properties of conductors used in overhead lines
- Cable tray flame tests
- Communications wire cabling
- Telecommunications cable
- Partial discharge test procedures
- AC/DC resistance ratios
- Fiber optics
- Telephone cordage
