Superseded Standard

IEEE 572-2006

IEEE Standard for Qualification of Class 1E Connection Assemblies for Nuclear Power Generating Stations

The basic requirements for qualifying Class 1E Connection Assemblies and interfaces that are to be used in nuclear power generating stations are described in this standard. The principles, methods, and procedures described are intended to be used for qualifying Connection Assemblies, maintaining and extending qualification, and updating qualification, as required, if the Connection Assembly is modified. The qualification requirements in this standard, when met, demonstrate and document the ability of the Connection Assembly to perform safety function(s) under applicable service conditions including design basis events, reducing the risk of commoncause Connection Assembly failure.

572-2019

IEEE Standard for Qualification of Class 1E Connection Assemblies for Nuclear Power Generating Stations and Other Nuclear Facilities

Basic requirements, direction, and methods for qualifying Class lE connection assemblies for service in nuclear power generating stations and other nuclear facilities are provided in this standard. These requirements include connectors, terminations, and environmental seals in combination with related cables or wires as assemblies. Qualification of cable with connectors to this standard does not replace qualification to IEEE Std 383(TM)-2015. This standard does not apply to containment electric penetrations, fire stops, in-line splices, components for service within the reactor vessel, or fiber optic connectors. (Refer to IEEE Std 1682(TM)-2011.) The qualification requirements in this standard, when met, demonstrate and document the ability of the equipment to perform safety function(s) under applicable service conditions (including design basis events) reducing the risks of common cause equipment failures. This standard does not provide environmental stress levels and performance requirements.

572-1985

Standard for Qualification of Class 1E Connection Assemblies for Nuclear Power Generating Stations

General requirements, direction, and methods for qualifying Class 1E connection assemblies for service in nuclear power generating stations are provided. Connectors, terminations, and environmental seals in combination with related cables or wires as assemblies are covered. Emphasis is placed on multipin, quick, disconnect-type connection assemblies primarily utilized for instrumentation, control, and power. This standard does not apply to containment electric penetrations, fire stops, in-line splices, or components for service within the reactor vessel.
