Title Measurement of smoke density of cables burning under defined conditions - Part 1: Test apparatus
Project Number 15843
Abstract/Scope Provides details of the test apparatus to be used for measuring smoke emission when electric or optical fibre cables are burnt under defined conditions, for example, a few cables burnt horizontally. The light transmittance (lt) under flaming combustion and smouldering conditions can be used as a means of comparing different cables or complying with specific requirements. NOTE: For the purposes of this standard, the term electric cable covers all insulated metallic conductor cables used for the conveyance of energy or signals. The principal changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: a) closer definition of the draught screen and the chamber orifices; b) closer definition of the support for the cable(s) under test; c) 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Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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.
