Notes: Excludes oscillator items which should be classified ; in FSC 5955 or 5963; fiber optic items which should be ; classified in Group 60; electronic modules as defined ; under Class 5963; and electrical cable, cord and wire ; assemblies, harnesses and sets, related to FSG 58 ; equipment (see FSC 5995). In Group 58, more than in any ; other group, it frequently happens that the same name is ; listed as an index entry in each of several classes. In ; addition, that name may also appear as an entry in groups ; other than 58. Each such entry refers to a distinctly ; different part or assembly, even though the differeent ; items have the same name. The listing of the same names ; in two or more classes indicates that, in one form, the ; part or assembly covered by the name is applicable to the ; equipment covered by one class, and in another form is ; applicable to the equipment covered by another class. For ; example, the Item name CODER, AUDIO FREQUENCY is ; applicable to two distinctly different assemblies, one of ; which has an application in cryptologic equipment, ; covered by Class 5810, and the other in radar equipment ; covered by Class 5840. Consequently the name CODER, AUDIO ; FREQUENCY is an entry under each of the two classes. When ; an item identification bears a name which is indexed ; under more than one class of Group 58, or is Group 58 and ; in some other group, the item will be classified in the ; same class as its next higher assembly in the manner ; described in the Department of Defense, Defense ; Integrated Data System (DIDS) Procedures Manual, DoD ; 4100.39-M. Also excluded from this group are data ; transmission and communications equipment such as ; terminals, sensors and other devices designed for use ; with a configuration of ADPE.
