Title Cables of rated voltages up to and including 450/750 V and having cross-linked insulation - Part 16: Water resistant polychloroprene or equivalent synthetic elastomer sheathed cables
Project Number 15929
Abstract/Scope This Part 16 of the HD details the particular specifications for water resistant EPR insulated, polychloroprene or other equivalent synthetic elastomer sheathed flexible cables of rated voltages up to and including 450/750 V, meant for applications in fresh water up to 10 m depth and water temperatures up to 40 °C. NOTE 1 Special regulations may apply to the use of cables in and around swimming pools and other locations, and to applications involving drinking water. NOTE 2 In respect of external environmental conditions as codified in HD 384.3 this cable is classified “AD 8“ – Submersion - Possibility of permanent and total covering by water. Each cable shall comply with the appropriate requirements given in Part 1 of this HD and the particular requirements of this part. NOTE 3 The overall dimensions of the cables in this part of HD 22 have been calculated in accordance with EN 60719.
