1. Purpose
This document is the MTM technical specification for a 22 kV, 3 Core, 185 mm2, Aluminium
Conductor, XLPE Insulated, Metallic Screened and HDPE Sheathed Cable.
This is the Electrical Industry standard 22 kV, 3 core Cable, and is, therefore, adopted by
MTM as its standard 3 core cable.

2. Abbreviations
MTM - Metro Trains Melbourne

3. Definitions
For all technical terms refer to AS 1429.1.
Shall Is used as the descriptive word to express a requirement that is
mandatory to achieve conformance to the standard.
Should Is used as the descriptive word to express a requirement that is
recommended in order to achieve compliance to the standard.
should can also be used if a requirement is a design goal but not a
mandatory requirement.

4. References & Legislation

4.1 Standards
The cable shall comply with AS/NZS 1429.1 2006 Electric Cables – Polymeric Insulated,
Part 1: for working voltages 1.9/3.3 (3.6) kV up to and including 19/33 (36) kV.
Note: All materials and components shall comply with the relevant Australian Standard or,
where these do not exist, with the relevant IEC or EN Standard.

4.2 Latest Issues and Amendments


Reference to all standards shall be read as a reference to the latest edition of that standard
and amendments available at the time of tendering.
