And in the cable industry all aimed to ensure that Russian standards translate into a language understood throughout the world. It is, therefore, of conversion table, in order to be comparing the Standards, OSTy and European standard, to pick one or the other products for energy. Large plants are doing it on their own, much smaller – in vniikp (All – Research, design – Design and Technological Institute of the cable industry). Often, the same cable is on European standard notation, and gost – is quite different. Does not match of their technical characteristics.
To the extent that a comparison can be solved, it is not a single cable, and two completely different products.
