Title Covered conductors for overhead lines and the related accessories for rated voltages above 1 kV AC and not exceeding 36 kV AC - Part 2: Accessories for covered conductors - Tests and acceptance criteria
Project Number 15157
Abstract/Scope Covered overhead line conductors are equipped with a plastic covering (XLPE-based) as protection against accidental contact with grounded parts respectively against accidental contact with other, at least covered live parts (e.g. other covered overhead line conductors) - This plastic cover is not a touch-proof, full protecting insulation - The covered overhead line conductors are designed for the use in high-voltage overhead lines with rated voltages up to 30 kV AC - The application of covered overhead line conductors is exclusively allowed on suitable insulators, which are designed for the rated voltage of the overhead line - As protection against negative influences by water penetration, the conductor may be equipped with measures to maintain longitudinal water tightness

Normative reference (6)  

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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