:this standard specifies construction, dimensions and tests for flexible cords insulated with thermoplastic or cross-linked pvc, cross-linked elastomers, or cross-linked polyolefin which, dependent on cord type, are designed for working voltages up to and including 250/250 v, 250/440 v or 0.6/1 kv. compliance with this standard does not necessarily imply suitability for end use. end applications need to be considered to ensure appropriate cord selection. notes: 1 this standard is intended to apply only to flexible cords of the types and sizes which are included. it is not intended, however, that other types or sizes of flexible cord should be precluded from use, and regulatory authorities will consider the issue of a certificate of suitability for connection to the supply mains under the non-declared scheme for other types and sizes as they are developed. any application for such certification should be accompanied by a description of the flexible cord. 2 purchasing guidelines are contained in appendix a
. 3 the as/nzs 3350 and as/nzs 60335 series of appliance standards, nominate flexible cords to iec 60227 and iec 60245. appendix b will facilitate the selection of cords to this standard, which should replace the designated iec cords. 4 as/nzs 3008.1 should be referenced to ensure correct flexible cord selection for the intended application in respect of current ratings.
