Liquid tight sheathing systems for cable management

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.

Flüssigkeitsdichte Elektroinstallationsschlauchsysteme

Diese Europäische Norm enthält Anforderungen gegen das Eindringen von Wasser und Prüfungen für flüssigkeitsdichte nicht flammenverbreitende Elektroinstallations-schlauchsysteme, die für den Schutz und das Führen von isolierten Leitern, Kabeln und Leitungen in elektrischen Installationen und/oder Kommunikations¬systemen bis zu 1 000 V Wechselspannung und/oder 1 500 V Gleichspannung vorgesehen sind. Diese Norm gilt für metallische flüssigkeitsdichte Elektroinstallationsschlauchsysteme, nichtmetallische und flüssigkeitsdichte Elektroinstallationsschlauchsysteme in Gemischtbauweise einschließlich Formstücke mit Gewinde, die das System abschließen. Diese Norm gilt nicht für Elektroinstallationsrohrsysteme, die von anderen Normen der Reihen EN 50086 oder EN 61386 abgedeckt sind. Flüssigkeitsdichte Elektroinstallationsschlauchsysteme geben keinen mechanischen Schutz für isolierte Leiter und/oder Kabel und/oder Leitungen. Sie sind nicht zur Verwendung beim Bau von Gebäuden als ein Bestandteil der festen Elektroinstallation vorgesehen.

Systèmes de gaines souples de protection contre les liquides pour la gestion du câblage

La présente norme spécifie les prescriptions contre la pénétration de l'eau et les essais applicables aux systèmes de gaines souples de protection contre les liquides, non propagateurs de la flamme pour la protection et le rangement des conducteurs isolés et/ou des câbles dans les installations électriques ou les systèmes de télécommunication jusqu'à 1 000 V en courant alternatif et/ou 1 500 V en courant continu. La présente norme s'applique aux systèmes de gaines souples de protection contre les liquides, métalliques, non métalliques et composites incluant les accessoires filetés qui terminent le système. La présente norme ne s'applique pas aux systèmes de conduits pour installations électriques couverts par le domaine d'application de la EN 50086 (série) ou de la EN 61386 (série). Les systèmes de gaines souples de protection contre les liquides n'assurent pas la protection mécanique des conducteurs et/ou câbles isolés. Ils ne sont pas destinés à être utilisés dans la construction de bâtiments en tant que composant d'un système de câblage fixe.

This European Standard was approved by CENELEC on 2005-04-12. CENELEC members are bound to
comply with the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations which stipulate the conditions for giving this European
Standard the status of a national standard without any alteration.

Up-to-date lists and bibliographical references concerning such national standards may be obtained on
application to the Central Secretariat or to any CENELEC member.

This European Standard exists in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other
language made by translation under the responsibility of a CENELEC member into its own language and
notified to the Central Secretariat has the same status as the official versions.

CENELEC members are the national electrotechnical committees of Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech
Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia,
Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland and United Kingdom.
