This European Standard specifies a test method to evaluate the maintenance of circuit integrity of electric cables which have intrinsic resistance to fire under fire conditions, in order to classify the electric cable according to EN 13501-3.
The test determines the survival time for circuit integrity of the electric cable when exposed to fire under the conditions of the standard time/temperature curve.
This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1.
This European Standard applies to cables of rated voltages up to and including 600/1 000 V and control cables with rated voltage.
The cable is tested in a standardized installation condition.
The test does not assess the performance of the cable management system.
NOTE Optical and data cables could be tested using this method but do not form part of this European Standard as the verification procedures for such cables are still under development.

This European Standard specifies a test method to evaluate the maintenance of circuit integrity of electric cables which have intrinsic resistance to fire under fire conditions, in order to classify the electric cable according to EN 13501-3 [2]. The test determines the survival time for circuit integrity of the electric cable when exposed to fire under the conditions of the EN 1363-1 standard time/temperature curve. This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1. This European Standard applies to electric power and control cables with rated voltage up to and including 600/1 000 V. The cable is tested in a standardized representative installation condition. The test does not assess the performance of the cable management system. NOTE Optical and data cables could be tested using this method but do not form part of this European Standard as the verification procedures for such cables are still under development. This European Standard includes (Annex A) field of direct application and rules for extended application of test results (EXAP).

This European Standard specifies the test method for cables designed to have intrinsic resistance to fire and intended for use as emergency circuits for alarm, lighting and communication purposes. This European Standard is applicable to cables for emergency circuits of rated voltage not exceeding 600 V/1 000 V, including those of rated voltage below 80 V and optical fibre cables. This European Standard includes details for the specific point of failure, continuity checking arrangement, test sample, test procedure and test report relevant to electric power and control cables with rated voltage up to and including 600 V/1 000 V. Details for the specific point of failure, continuity checking arrangement, test sample, test procedure and test report relevant to copper data and telecom cables and optical cables are given in the relevant standards of CLC/TC 46X and CLC/TC 86A. The test method is limited to cables with an overall diameter not exceeding 20 mm. The test method is based on the direct impingement of flame from a propane burner giving a constant temperature attack of a notional 842 °C. It is intended to be used for cables for emergency circuits suitable for alarm, emergency lighting and communication. NOTE When the test method is used in support of EN 13501-3, it only applies to cables of less than 20 mm diameter, and, for metallic conductor cables, to those with conductor sizes up to and including 2,5 mm². For optical cables, only the less than 20 mm diameter limit applies. This European Standard includes (Annex B) the field of direct application and rules for extended application of test results (EXAP). Details regarding classification using data from this test are given in EN 13501-3 . Information regarding classification is given in Annex D. This European Standard also includes informative guidance (Annex E) on a means of applying a water spray to the cable during the test. Such a requirement may be a feature of particular product standards.

These exogenous Crosstalk effects are near end crosstalk (ExNEXT), far end crosstalk (ExFEXT), equal level far end crosstalk (ExELFEXT). This document should be read in conjunction with EN 50289-1-1, which contains essential provisions for its application. Reference is made also to EN 50289-1-10 in which the definitions and test methods for crosstalk is given. The exogenous crosstalk test method is described, as well as the treatment of the results to simulate the installation condition of a disturbed cable in contact with six disturbing cables.

This European Standard specifies the test method for cables designed to have intrinsic resistance to fire and intended for use as emergency circuits for alarm, lighting and communication purposes. This standard is applicable to cables, for emergency circuits, of rated voltage not exceeding 600/1 000 V, including those of rated voltage below 80 V, and for emergency circuit optical cables. NOTE Although test procedures for electronic data and communication cables and optical fibre cables are given in this document, these areas are under active development and the given procedures may be subject to future review. This standard is not applicable to cables intended for use in public telecommunications networks. The test method is limited to cables with an overall diameter not exceeding 20 mm. The test method, which is based on the direct impingement of flame from a propane burner giving a constant temperature attack of a notional 842 °C, can be used for cables for emergency circuits required to comply with Subclause 4.3.1.4.6 (a) of the Interpretative Document for Essential Requirement No. 2 'Safety in Case of Fire' (94/C62/01) of the Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC). In such cases the test method only applies, for metallic conductor cables, to those with conductor sizes up to and including 2,5 mm2. For optical cables, only the 20 mm diameter limit applies. This standard includes (Annex D) a means of linking the measured survival time to the fire resistance classification for these cables, as required by Subclause 4.3.1.4.6(a) of 94/C62/01. The standard also includes (Annex E) a means of applying a water spray to the cable during the test. Although there is no requirement under the Construction Products Directive for cables to withstand water spray when assessing resistance to fire, such a requirement may be a feature of particular product standards.
