Title Multicore and multipair cables for installation above and below ground
Project Number 15323
Abstract/Scope HD 627 applies to multicore and multipair rigid and flexible conductor cables for fixed installations having a rated voltage up to 1 kV and operating at a voltagec above 80 V rms. The insulation and sheath may be either thermoplastic and thermosetting, halogenated or halogen free. This Part 1 specifies the General Requirements applicable to these cables; additional or deviating requirements are given in the particular sections of this HD. Test methods are given in EN 60811, HD 21, HD 22, HD 186, HD 383, HD 405, HD 602, HD 605, HD 606, IEC 189 and this HD. The particular types of cables for each category of fire performance are specified in Parts 3 to 7. Cables designed to be installed within the containment area of nuclear power plants (LOCA), or cables specifically designed to be radiation resistant are not included in this HD.
