1. Purpose
This guide is intended to give a description how to organize the interface with the Electrical group on projects. This guide shall be read with reference 3.1.

2. Established Interfaces
A list detailing interfaces is Attachment 2.

2.1 Power Supplies
The following information and requirements shall be communicated to the Electrical group:

• • • • • • • • • •

voltage and type of power supply required e.g. D. C., single or three-phase AC; number of circuits required (including spare capacity); uninterruptable; normal/alternate mains etc.; length of time that the supply is required in the event of a failure mains; duration of changeover from mains to standby ( e. g. 50 m. s. ) ; voltage regulation and tolerance; distribution boards requirements (presentation in the form of a “key-one line” diagram is preferred); required power in watts; allowable voltage drop; type of protection (fuse, automatic breaker etc.).

2.2 Alarm Systems
Full details of alarm may be provided on a form as shown on Attachment 1.

2.3 Measurement Systems
Details required may be provided by using the form as shown on Attachment 1. Measurements shall preferably be presented by the Electrical group as isolated analogue signals of 4-20 mA.

Coordination with the Under Ground group for trenches and crossings will be done by the Electrical group.5 Control and Interface Panels Interposing cabinets can be located in instrument rooms or electrical rooms depending on project/client requirements. If mounted in instrument rooms the Control Systems group is responsible for design and requisitioning. 2. 2. 3. application of chokes. system etc. details of any instrument cables to be routed in electrical cable trenches. are to be incorporated in panels or desks details and space requirements are to be obtained from the Electrical group. including termination points of runs. earthing systems in control rooms and equipment rooms. Close coordination between the groups is mandatory to avoid duplication and to come to a sound design. If no interposing cabinet is used and instrument cables are routed into motor control cabinets (e. Detailed information could be provided on a form as shown on Attachment 1. for start/stop) provisions should be provided inside these cabinets for mounting these cables. segregation between systems where applicable.6 Communication Systems Where free-issue telephone handsets. 2. radio microphone/loudspeakers closed circuit T.8 Earthing A philosophy drawing shall be prepared indicating: • • • • • • method of termination.7 Cable Routing A study drawing shall be prepared by each group clearly indicating the following: • • • • • trench routes.4 Electric Control Systems All process signals shall be routed into the instrumentation system (also those with no instrumentation involvement) and then those signals for electrical control passed on to the Motor Control Center. minimum installation depth.g. space requirements including spare capacity.V. References . segregation required between instrument cables and between instrument and electrical cables. earthing of field instruments. fireproofing requirements where applicable.If mounted in electrical rooms the Electrical group is responsible for design and requisitioning. 2. earth electrode resistance requirement for each system.2. road crossings where applicable.
