IEEE Standard for Identification of Contact Wire Used in Overhead Contact Systems

Parameters to be used in the identification of contact wires used in transit systems and electric railways and railroads are defined. The identification of contact wire by metallurgical content, electrical conductivity, and agency ownership is the intended use of this standard. This standard is not intended to replace or supersede existing identification standards using grooving but rather to simplify identification methods.
