Title Test methods and requirements for accessories for use on distribution cables of rated voltage 0,6/1,0 (1,2) kV
Project Number 14577
Abstract/Scope This European Standard details the performance requirements and the test methods for type tests for cable accessories for use on cables of rated voltage 0,6/1,0 (1,2) kV as defined in HD 603. Formerly, approvals for such products have been achieved on the basis of national standards and specifications and/or the demonstration of satisfactory service performance. The publication of this European standard does not invalidate existing approvals. However, products approved to such earlier standards or specifications shall not claim approval to this European Standard unless specifically tested to it. After they have been successfully made, these tests need not be repeated unless changes are made in the cable accessory materials, design or manufacturing process which might affect the performance characteristics. Joints, stop ends and outdoor terminations for extruded solid dielectric insulated cables and transition joints between extruded solid dielectric insulated and impregnated paper insulated cables are included. Joints, stop ends and outdoor terminations for impregnated paper insulated cables are not included. The service operating conditions of accessories shall be compatible with the service operating conditions of the cable. Accessories for special applications such as submarine cables, shipboard application or hazardous situations (explosive environments, fire resistant cables or seismic conditions) are not included.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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