or station side of the Pilot cable Isolation shelf), as well as all
other associated cables.

b. For maximum safety, this assembly shall be physically isolated
from the hot panel/lightning arrester assembly, with
interconnecting pilot cable(s) connecting the two assemblies.

c. The assembly shall be located as close as practicable to the
equipment which requires the communications and protection
circuits. The equipment shall be mounted on backboards and in
cabinets, so as to minimize contact by personnel of possible
lethal voltages which may be experienced on pilot cable during
fault conditions on adjacent power cable.

4.6.3 Hot Panel/Lightning Arrester Panel

One or more backboards shall support the mounting of all lightning
arresters, all hot panels for the substation installation as well as all
incoming and outgoing pilot cables and grounding cables The hot
panel/lightning arrester assembly shall be mounted in an area within

Date of Approval: August 21, 2006
48-TMSS-05, Rev. 0 TRANSMISSION MATERIALS STANDARD SPECIFICATION
the substation where exposure to working personnel is minimized
(e.g. the substation basement). Mounting material for the backboard
used in this assembly shall be suitable size bakelite board.

4.7 Painting

4.7.1 The inside and outside of metallic boxes shall be painted in
accordance with SEC Painting Standard TES-H-001 and the paint
color shall conform to SEC Paint Color Codes and Standards TES-H-
001.01.

4.7.2 For consideration of vendors standard paint specification, details
shall be submitted for SEC approval. SEC shall be the sole judge on
the adequacy/acceptability of the vendors painting system.


4.8 Marking

4.8.1 Each assembly shall bear a nameplate which shall furnish
manufacturing particulars, as well as information specific to the
installation at the site. The plate shall be marked in English and
Arabic with the following:

a. Manufacturers name
b. Year of manufacturer
c. Manufacturers Serial Number
d. SEC Item or Stock Number
e. SEC Purchase Order or Contract Number
f. The serial number of the individual assembly


4.8.2 The nameplate shall be of non corrodible material, and shall be
permanently affixed to the associated backboard or cabinet. Plastic
nameplates shall not be used.

4.8.3 A detail sheet shall be affixed to the hot panel with information
relating to the position of termination of incoming and outgoing pilot
cables, as well as all information on cross-connects performed at the
site. The section of the detail sheet indicating information on cross-
connects inside the hot panel shall be readily changeable to allow for
future modifications in cross-connect activity at site.

4.8.4 Labelling shall also be provided on all incoming and outgoing pilot
cables entering the assemblies in each cabinet. The labels shall be
permanently affixed to the entering pilot cables on the respective
assemblies. Information on the labels shall be clearly readable and
shall indicate the following:

a. For pilot cables entering a substation, the destination of the pilot
cable (both the termination at the near end and the far end) and

Date of Approval: August 21, 2006
48-TMSS-05, Rev. 0 TRANSMISSION MATERIALS STANDARD SPECIFICATION
pilot cable number assigned by SEC-ERB for the specific pilot
cable.

b. For pilot cables routed between the assemblies within the
assemblies, labelling shall be provided at both ends of the pilot
cable indicating the termination at the near end and the far end
of the cable (for example - Hot Panel/Lightning Arrester
Assembly #1 to Pilot Cable Isolation Cabinet Assembly #1).


5.0 TESTS

All test results shall be provided for review and acceptance by SEC.

5.1 Type (Design) Tests

Longitudinal Surge Test - the cabinet shall be subjected to a 65kV test voltage
at a wave of 1.2 x 50 microseconds.

5.2 Routine (Production) Tests

5.2.1 The cabinet shall be subjected to a 20kV rms test voltage for five
seconds.

5.2.2 Insulation Resistance Test shall be performed using a megger or
similar instrument capable of giving a reading of 1000 megaohms or
greater. This test shall be performed after the longitudinal surge and
High voltage tests on components/equipment are conducted.
