International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 50262:1998
Title Cable glands for electrical installations
Project Number 313
Abstract/Scope This European standard provides requirements and tests for the construction and performance of metric cable glands. This standard covers complete glands as supplied by the manufacturer or supplier, but not parts of cable glands. Requirements and tests for metric cable glands with multi-orifice seals are under consideration. This standard does not cover cable glands: for fibre optic cables; for mineral insulated cables specified in HD 586: with a gland entry portion other than metric. NOTE: Certain cable glands may also be used in 'Hazardous Areas'. Regard should then be taken of other or additional requirements necessary for equipment to be installed in such conditions, for example as specified in EN 50014

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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