Title Measurement of smoke density of cables burning under defined conditions - Part 2: Test procedure and requirements
Project Number 24013
Abstract/Scope Provides details of the test procedure to be employed for the measurement of the density of smoke emitted from cables burning under defined conditions. It describes the means of preparing and assembling cables for test, the method of burning the cables, and gives recommended requirements for evaluating test results. The principal changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: a) inclusion of cables down to 1 mm diameter; b) inclusion of non-circular cables; c) addition of guidance on testing cables above 80 mm diameter; d) delineation of elements of the test report; e) addition of guidance on the calculation for other parameters for fire safety engineering purposes; f) removal of minor differences with equivalent CENELEC work to allow parallel voting with that body. Has the status of a group safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved


(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat


(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level


(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement


(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn


(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
