IEEE 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.
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.
