In accordance with MOD policy to reduce the dangers to personnel and damage to
equipment from smoke, toxic fumes and corrosive gases when electrical wires and
cables are subjected to fire, an extended range of Limited Fire Hazard (LFH) wires,
cables and ancillary components is now available. The new range of LFH
components is to be used in all new construction MOD vessels and is also to be
incorporated retrospectively in existing vessels when opportunities arise.

4.1

Data for Radio Frequency Electrical Cables and Associated Glands and
Terminations

4.1.1

Cable Construction

4.1.2

4.1.3

4.1.4

a.

The LFH sheathed cables shown in this DEF STAN comply with DEF STAN 61-12
Part 9.

b.

Most Radio Frequency (RF) cables shown in DEF STAN 517 Part 3 have been
included.

c.

DEF STAN 512 Part 12 denotes the other cables of DEF STAN 512 Part 5 which
comply with commercial and other MOD specifications.

Arrangement of Tables
a.

Data tables of glands, terminations, electrical characteristics and dimensions etc,


of each cable have been arranged with one cable only on each page.

b.

To facilitate reference to data, uniformity of presentation has been preserved


throughout. Columns read in the same general order from left to right.

c.

Cables having the same dielectric have been arranged together in ascending order
of rated impedance.

Service of Cables
a.

The service use of these cables will, generally, be the determining factor for the
selection of the cable to be used and they are not, therefore, included in the lists of
equivalent cables in DEF STAN 512 Part 13.

b.

When a cable has been introduced as a replacement for a specific imperial cable,
or where a sheathed LFH cable has a comparable electrical performance to a PVC
Sheathed cable, this has been indicated on the data page.

c.

The Table Headings have been annotated to include the NATO Stock Number.

d.

The Descriptive Code shown in the Tables for RF LFH cables is fully defined in
Table C of DEF STAN 61-12 Part 9.

e.

All cables are NON-FLEXIBLE unless shown otherwise.

Dimensions and Weight


a.

Dimensions and weight values are nominal unless otherwise stated, e.g. the overall
diameter (OD) of cable is given as maximum.

b.

Diameter under screens of collectively screened cables are maxima deduced from
the maximum OD of the cable.

4.1.5

Resistance
a.

4.1.6

Voltage Rating
a.

4.1.7

4.1.9

4.1.10

Voltage rating, where given, is nominal root mean square (rms) value.

Core Identity and Layering


a.

4.1.8

Resistance values given are maxima per conductor at 20C.

In multicore cables demarcation between one layer and the next is indicated by a
colon (:) and entries are shown with cable centre to outer layer read from left to
right. Cores are shown in the order in which they are laid up.

Glands, Grommets and Deck Tubes


a.

The types and sizes of metric and imperial cable glands have been tabulated for
each cable. The sizes given are the smallest in which a cable of maximum overall
diameter can be accommodated.

b.

Data for multiple type glands and pressure type glands is not included in the tables.

c.

For further details of glands, grommets and deck tubes refer to DEF STAN 02512
Part 11.

Terminations and Connectors


a.

The appropriate sizes of all Metric terminations to suit the conductor sizes of the
cables have been included, where applicable.

b.

When the outer conductor of a co-axial cable or the screen of a collectively screened
cable is required to be permanently connected electrically to the enclosure it is to
be terminated and secured by means of an equipment ferrule and clip (DEF STAN
02512 Part 10). Only in those instances where it is necessary to meet EMC
requirements is the equipment gland (DEF STAN 02512 Part 10) to be used.

c.

For further details of terminations and connectors refer to DEF STAN 02512 Part
10.

Abbreviations
a.

Definitions of the abbreviations used in the data tables are given in Annex A.

b.

Numerical references in the column headings are to the page numbers in


DEF STAN 02512 Parts 10 or 11 where fuller details of the item referred to can
be found.

Contract Requirements
When Defence Standards are incorporated into contracts users are responsible for their correct
application and for complying with contractual and statutory requirements. Compliance with
a Defence Standard does not in itself confer immunity from legal obligations.
Revision of Defence Standards
Defence Standards are revised as necessary by up issue or amendment. It is important that
users of Defence Standards should ascertain that they are in possession of the latest issue or
amendment. Information on all Defence Standards is contained in Def Stan 00-00 Standards
for Defence Part 3 , Index of Standards for Defence Procurement Section 4 Index of Defence
Standards and Defence Specifications published annually and supplemented regularly by
Standards in Defence News (SID News). Any person who, when making use of a Defence
Standard encounters an inaccuracy or ambiguity is requested to notify the Directorate of
Standardization (DStan) without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and
appropriate action taken.
