Cable management - Cable tray systems and cable ladder systems

This International Standard specifies requirements and tests for cable tray systems and cable ladder systems intended for the support and accommodation of cables and possibly other electrical equipment in electrical and/or communication systems installations. Where necessary, cable tray systems and cable ladder systems may be used for the division or arrangement of cables into groups.

Führungssysteme für Kabel und Leitungen - Kabelträgersysteme für elektrische Installationen

Systèmes de câblage - Systèmes de chemin de câbles et systèmes d'échelle à câbles

Cette Norme internationale spécifie les exigences et les essais pour les systèmes de chemin de câbles et les systèmes d'échelle à câbles prévus pour le support, le logement des câbles et éventuellement d'autres équipements électriques dans des installations électriques et/ou des systèmes de communication. Si nécessaire, les systèmes de chemin de câbles et les systèmes d'échelle à câbles peuvent être utilisés pour la séparation ou le regroupement de câbles.

Urejanje okablenja – Sistemi kabelskih polic in kabelskih lestvic (IEC 61537:2006)

Ta mednarodni standard je osredotočen na zahteve in preskuse za sisteme kabelskih polic in kabelskih lestev namenjenih za nošenje in polaganje kablov in morda tudi druge električne opreme v električnih in/ali komunikacijskih sistemih inštalacij. Kjer je potrebno so lahko sistemi kabelskih polic in kabelskih lestvic uporabljeni za ločitev ali razporeditev kablov v skupine. Ta standard se ne nanaša na cevne sisteme, sisteme kabelskih korit in kabelskih kanalov ali kakšne druge prenašalce toka.
