Reference EN 60584-3:2008
Title Thermocouples - Part 3: Extension and compensating cables - Tolerances and identification system
Project Number 17012
Abstract/Scope It specifies manufacturing tolerances for extension and compensating cables (other than mineral insulated cables) provided directly to users of industrial processes. These tolerances are determined with respect to the e.m.f.-temperature relationship of Part 1 of the standard. Furthermore, requirements for extension and compensating cables for use in industrial process control are specified. The main technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows: Addition of Subclause 5.4 Connectors. Addition of Clauses 7 Dimensions and 8 Requirements.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
