Reference EN 50369:2005
Title Liquid tight sheathing systems for cable management
Project Number 7399
Abstract/Scope This European Standard specifies the requirements against ingress of water and tests for flexible non-flame propagating liquid tight sheathing systems for the protection and management of insulated conductors and/or cables in electrical installations or in communication systems up to 1 000 V a.c. and/or 1 500 V d.c. This standard applies to metallic, non-metallic and composite liquid tight sheathing systems including threaded fittings which terminate the system This European Standard does not apply to conduit systems for electrical installations which come within the scope of EN 50086 series as well as EN 61386 series. Liquid tight sheathing systems do not provide mechanical protection to insulated conductors and/or cables. They are not for use within the construction of buildings as a component of a fixed wiring system. NOTE Earthing conductors may or may not be insulated.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
