Title Low-voltage electrical installations - Part 5-52: Selection and erection of electrical equipment - Wiring systems
Project Number 22699
Abstract/Scope IEC 60364-5-52:2009 deals with the selection and erection of wiring systems. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 2001, and constitutes a technical revision. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: - Subclause 521.4 introduces minor changes with regard to busbar trunking systems and powertrack systems. - Subclause 523.6 introduces minor changes with regard to the sizing of cables where harmonic currents are present. - A new sublause 523.9 concerning single-core cables with a metallic covering has been introduced. - Clause 525 introduces changes in the maximum value of voltage drop permitted between the origin of the consumer's installation and the equipment which should not be greater than that given in the relevant annex. - Clause 526 introduces minor changes to electrical connections including additional exceptions for inspection of connections and additional notes. - Clause 528 introduces additional requirements with regard to proximity of underground power and telecommunication cables. - Clause 529 introduces minor changes to selection and erection of wiring systems in relation to maintainability, including cleaning.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
