International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 60702-1:2002
Title Mineral insulated cables and their terminations with a rated voltage not exceeding 750 V - Part 1: Cables
Project Number 14005
Abstract/Scope Applies to mineral insulated general wiring cables with copper or copper alloy sheath and copper conductors and with rated voltages of 500 V and 750 V. Provision is made for a corrosion-resistant extruded outer covering over the copper sheath, when required. This outer covering is not specified for the purpose of electrical insulation of the metal sheath. Requirements for terminations for use with these cables are specified in EN 60702-2. The purpose of this standard is to specify mineral insulated cables that are safe and reliable when properly used, to state the manufacturing requirements and characteristics to achieve this, and to specify methods for checking conformity with those 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Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
