Title System for cable designation
Project Number 3164
Abstract/Scope This Harmonisation Document details a designation system for harmonised power cables and cords, of rated voltage up to and including 450/750 V. NOTE The use of the system for Recognised National Types of cable or cord has been withdrawn by CENELEC TC 20. For non-harmonised cables of rated voltage up to and including 450/750 V, National Committees are permitted to use any designation that does not conflict with this HD, but see Tables 1a and 4 for recommendations.
