Title Cable trunking systems and cable ducting systems for electrical installations - Part 2-3: Particular requirements for slotted cable trunking systems intended for installation in cabinets
Project Number 16965
Abstract/Scope This European Standard specifies requirements and tests for cable trunking systems (CTS) and cable ducting systems (CDS) intended for the accommodation, and where necessary for the electrically protective separation, of insulated conductors, cables and possibly other electrical equipment in electrical and/or communication systems installations. The maximum voltage of these installations is 1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. Slotted cable trunking systems are intended for mounting inside cabinets in electrical and/or communication system installations. This European Standard does not apply to conduit systems, cable tray systems, cable ladder systems, power track systems or equipment covered by other standards. This European Standard shall be used in conjunction with EN 50085-1:2005 “Cable trunking systems and cable ducting systems for electrical installations – Part 1: General requirements” which is referred to in this document as Part 1. Wherever reference is made in this European Standard to EN 50085 1:2005 this does not apply to cable ducting systems.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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