Title Cable trunking systems and cable ducting systems for electrical installations - Part 2-1: Cable trunking systems and cable ducting systems intended for mounting on walls and ceilings
Project Number 3343
Abstract/Scope Replacement: This European Standard specifies requirements and tests for cable trunking systems (CTS) and cable ducting systems (CDS) intended for the accommodation, and where necessary for the electrically protective separation, of insulated conductors, cables and possibly other electrical equipment in electrical and/or communication systems installations. The maximum voltage of these installations is 1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. These systems are intended for mounting on walls and/or ceilings. They may be embedded, installed in a flush or semi-flush state, surface mounted or mounted away from the surface using fixing devices. This standard does not apply to conduit systems, cable tray systems, cable ladder systems, power track systems or equipment covered by other standards. This standard shall be used in conjunction with EN 50085-1:2005: Cable trunking systems and cable ducting systems for electrical installations - Part 1 General requirements which is referred to in this document as Part 1.
