Title Cables for portable earthing and short-circuiting equipment
Project Number 20659
Abstract/Scope Applies to flexible cables with insulation based on ethylene propylene rubber (EPR), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or silicone rubber (SiR) for portable earthing and short-circuiting equipment. For this type of cable no rated voltage is given as such cables are exclusively intended for earthing and short-circuiting equipment. The particular types of cable and their code designations are specified in Clause 6 of this standard. The test methods specified in this standard are given in IEC 60227-2, IEC 60245-2, IEC 60811 and IEC 62230. The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: - extension of the scope to cover silicone rubber as an insulation material; - introduction of a new normative annex for clashing test.

Relations


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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
