Informacijska tehnologija - Univerzalni sistemi polaganja kablov - 5. del: Podatkovna središča - Dodatek A1

Ta evropski standard določa univerzalno polaganje kablov, ki podpira širok razpon komunikacijskih storitev za uporabo v podatkovnih centrih. Zajema uravnoteženo polaganje kablov in polaganje optičnih kablov. Ta evropski standard temelji na zahtevah EN 50173-1 in se sklicuje nanje. Ta evropski standard vsebuje dodatne zahteve, ki so primerne za podatkovne centre, kjer je največja razdalja, na kateri je treba distribuirati komunikacijske storitve, opredeljena z izvedbo hrbteničnega polaganja kablov v EN 50173-1. Načela tega evropskega standarda prav tako lahko veljajo za inštalacije, ki niso v tem obsegu.

Foreword

This amendment was prepared by the Technical Committee CENELEC TC 215, Electrotechnical aspects of

telecommunication equipment.

The text of the draft was submitted to the formal vote and was approved by CENELEC as amendment A1 to

EN 50173-5:2007 on 2010-12-01.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. CEN and CENELEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

The following dates were fixed:
– latest date by which the amendment has to be implemented
at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement
(dop) 2011-12-01
– latest date by which the national standards conflicting
with the amendment have to be withdrawn
(dow) 2013-12-01

This standard introduces several changes in order to align the standard with the changes resulting from the

introduction of new Channel classes and component Categories in EN 50173-1:201X. Furthermore it

introduces a new normative annex on the use of high density optical fibre connecting hardware.

For the convenience of the reader of this standard, the pertinent tables are reproduced in total, with grey

shading of new table cells. Where modifications to text apply to single expressions or a few words only, this

is indicated by underlining.

1.2 Conformance
In the English version, replace bullet c), second sub-bullet, with:

attachment of appropriate components to a link design meeting the prescribed performance Class of

Annex A. Channel performance shall be ensured where a channel is created by adding more than one cord

to either end of a link meeting the requirements of Annex A;

In all versions, replace text starting from “In addition the following requirements” up to and including bullet g)

by:
In addition the requirements of the EN 50174 series of standards shall be met.

The test parameters to be measured and the sampling levels to be applied for a particular installation shall

be defined in the installation specification and quality plans for that installation prepared in accordance with

EN 50174-1.

The treatment of measured results that fail to meet the requirements of this clause, or lie within the relevant

measurement accuracy, shall be clearly documented within a quality plan as described in EN 50174-1.

Delete the sentence “Neither this standard nor EN 50174-1 specify the test and sampling levels to be

adopted”.

Delete the last paragraph, which starts with “Specifications marked “ffs” (for further study) …”.

2 Normative references
Update the reference to EN 50173-1:2007 to read “EN 50173-1:201X”.

Update the title of EN 50174-1 to read “Information technology – Cabling installation – Part 1: Installation

specification and quality assurance”
Replace the reference to EN 61754-7 with:

EN 61754-7, Fibre optic connector interfaces - Part 7: Type MPO connector family (IEC 61754-7)

Add the following references:

Replace 1 paragraph with:

The main distribution and zone distribution cabling shall be designed to provide a channel performance as

required from Class E or higher as specified in EN 50173-1:201X, taking into consideration the

requirements for application support over the lifetime of the cabling.
Delete the NOTE.
5.3.3 Optical fibre cabling
Replace existing text with:

Cabling shall be designed using the cabled optical fibre Categories referenced in Clause 7 to provide

channel performance as required from Classes OF-100, OF-300, OF-500, OF-2000, OF-5000 and OF-10000

as specified in EN 50173-1:201X.

Where multimode optical fibre is used, the main distribution and zone distribution cabling shall be designed

to provide a minimum of Class OF-300 channel performance using cabled optical fibres of 7.3.1.1.

6.2.2.1 Component choice
Replace 2 paragraph with:
Using the models of 6.2.2.2:

For operating temperatures above 20 °C, Z should be reduced by 0,2 % per °C for screened cables and 0,4 % per °C (20 °C to

40 °C) and 0,6 % per °C (> 40 °C to 60 °C) for unscreened cables. Manufacturers’/suppliers’ information shall be consulted where

the intended operating temperature exceeds 60 °C.
