Title Optical fibre cables - Gas pipe cables - Family specification for cables to be installed in high pressure gas pipes
Project Number 16182
Abstract/Scope This document is a family specification that covers gas pipe cables and sub-ducts for installation by blowing and/or pulling / dragging in high pressure gas pipes. Systems built with components covered by this standard are subject to the requirements of sectional specifications EN 60794-3 and EN 60794-4 where applicable. Gas pipe cable and sub-duct constructions have to meet the different requirements of the gas-companies and/or associations regarding chemical, environmental, operational interactions and in general maintenance conditions. A table of preferential applications, describing gas pipe cable characteristics versus methods of installation is reported in Annex A for high pressure gas pipe cables. Clause 4 describes a blank detail specification for gas pipe cables and sub-ducts for installation by blowing and/or pulling / dragging in/into high pressure gas pipes. It incorporates some minimum requirements. Detail specifications may be prepared on the basis of this family specification. The parameters specified in this standard may be affected by measurement uncertainty arising either from measurement errors or calibration errors due to lack of suitable standards. Acceptance criteria should be interpreted with respect to this consideration. The number of fibres tested is representative of the sewer cable and should be agreed between the customer and supplier.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
