European foreword

This document (EN 50200:2015) has been prepared by Working Group 10 of CLC/TC 20 “Electric cables”.

The following dates are fixed:
• latest date by which the document has to be implemented at (dop) 2016-09-14
national level by publication of an identical national
standard or by endorsement

• latest date by which the national standards conflicting with the (dow) 2018-09-14

document have to be withdrawn
This document supersedes EN 50200:2006.

The main changes compared to EN 50200:2006 are as follows (minor changes are not listed):

– detailed procedures for metallic data cables and for optical fibre cables have been removed as they are

now given in the relevant standards of CLC/TC 46X and CLC/TC 86A. These standards refer to

EN 50200 for the basic test method;

– recasting and extension of the existing Annex D into two new Annexes, Annex B “Field of direct

application and extended application of test results (Electric power and control cables with rated voltage

up to and including 600 V/1 000 V) and Annex D “Information regarding classification”.

The cable is tested in a representative installed condition, under conditions of minimum bending radius, and

the test is based upon a constant temperature attack at a minimum test temperature of 830 °C. This is typical

of the gas temperature reached after 30 min exposure to the time/temperature conditions prescribed in

EN 1363-1.

The test method in this document includes exposure to fire with mechanical shock under specified conditions

and satisfies the requirements of Mandate M/117 for the PH classification. This European Standard also

includes (Annex E) a means of applying a water spray to the cable during the test, which is not required

under Mandate M/117.

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

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

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CENELEC by the European Commission and

the European Free Trade Association.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in EN ISO 13943 and EN 60695-4 and

the following apply.
3.1
draught-free environment

space in which the results of tests are not significantly affected by the local air speed

4 Test environment

The test shall be carried out in a draught-free environment within a suitable chamber, of minimum volume

20 m , with facilities for disposing of any noxious gases resulting from the burning. Sufficient ventilation shall

be available to sustain the flame for the duration of the test. Air inlets and the exhaust chimney should be

located in such a way that the burner flame remains stable during the verification procedure and test.

If necessary, the burner shall be shielded from any draughts by the use of draught shields. Windows may be

installed in the walls of the chamber in order to observe the behaviour of the cable during the test. Fume

exhaust should be achieved by means of natural draught through a chimney located at least 1 m from the

burner. A damper may be used for adjustment of ventilation conditions.

The same ventilation and shielding conditions shall be used in the chamber during both the verification and

cable test procedures.

The chamber and test apparatus shall be at (25 ± 15) °C at the start of each test.

NOTE The test given in this European Standard may involve the use of dangerous voltages and temperatures.

Suitable precautions should be taken against shock, burning, fire and explosion risks that may be involved and against

any noxious fumes that may be produced.
5 Test apparatus
5.1 Test equipment
The test equipment shall consist of the following:

a) a test wall, on to which the cable is mounted, comprising a board manufactured from heat resisting non-

combustible material suitable for the temperatures involved fastened to steel supports and mounted on

a rigid support as described in 5.2;
b) a continuity checking arrangement as described in 5.3;

c) a source of heat comprising a horizontally mounted ribbon burner as described in 5.4;

d) a shock producing device as described in 5.5;
---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------
SIST EN 50200:2016
EN 50200:2015

e) a test wall equipped with thermocouples for verification of the source of heat as described in 6.1;

f) fuses as described in 5.7.

A general arrangement of the test equipment is shown in Figure 1, Figure 2 and Figure 3.

5.2 Test wall and mounting

The test wall shall consist of a board of heat resisting, non-combustible and non-metallic material fastened

rigidly to two horizontal steel supports, one at the top of the board and the other at the bottom. Vertical

supports may also be used. The board shall be (900 ± 100) mm long, (300 ± 50) mm high and (10 ± 2) mm

thick, and the total mass of the wall (i.e. board and steel supports) shall be (10 ± 0,5) kg. Ballast, if required,

shall be placed inside the steel supports.
Guidance on the choice of suitable material for the wall is given in Annex A.

Boards should not be re-used if they show significant damage. In case of dispute, a new board shall be used

for each test.

NOTE 1 Supports made from square section steel tube approximately 25 mm x 25 mm and approximately 1 m long

have been found to be suitable.

NOTE 2 The top support should be fastened to the board so that its upper face is slightly above the upper edge of the

board, so that the shock producing device impacts on the support and not the board.

Each horizontal support shall have a mounting hole at each end, not more than 100 mm from the edge of the

board, the exact position and diameter being determined by the particular supporting bush and supporting

framework used. The test wall shall be fastened to a rigid support by four bonded rubber bushes of hardness

50-60 Shore A fitted between the horizontal steel supports of the wall and the support framework, as shown

in Figure 1 and Figure 2, so as to allow movement under impact.

NOTE 3 A typical rubber bush which has been found to be suitable is shown in Figure 4.

In order to check the mounting of the wall, the static deflection following application of a load to the centre of

the upper support of the wall shall periodically be measured.
The values of load and deflection shall comply with the following:
– load: (25 ± 0,2) kg;
– deflection: (1,5 ± 0,3) mm.

5.3 Continuity checking arrangement for electric power and control cables with rated

voltage up to and including 600 V/1 000 V

During the test a current for continuity checking shall be passed through all conductors of the test sample.

This shall be provided by a three phase star connected or single phase transformer(s) of sufficient capacity

to maintain the test voltage up to the maximum leakage current allowable.

NOTE 1 Due note should be taken of the fuse characteristics when determining the power rating of the transformer.

This current is achieved by connecting, at the other end of the sample, a suitable load and indicating device

(e.g. lamp) to each conductor, or group of conductors.

NOTE 2 A current of 0,25 A at the test voltage, through each conductor or group of conductors, has been found to be

suitable.

SIST EN 50200:2016
EN 50200:2015
5.4 Source of heat
5.4.1 Burner

The source of heat shall be a ribbon type propane gas burner with a nominal burner face length of 500 mm

with a Venturi mixer. The nominal burner face width shall be 10 mm. The face of the burner shall have three

staggered rows of drilled holes, nominally 1,32 mm in diameter and drilled at centres 3,2 mm from one

another, as shown in Figure 5.
Guidance on the choice of recommended burner systems is given in Annex A.
NOTE 1 A centre-feed burner is recommended.

NOTE 2 A row of small holes milled on each side of the burner plate, to serve as pilot holes for keeping the flame

burning, is permitted.
5.4.2 Flow meters and flow rates

Mass flow meters / controllers shall be used as the means of controlling accurately the input flow rates of fuel

and air to the burner.

For the purposes of this test, the air shall have a dew point not higher than 0 °C.

The mass flow rates used for the test shall be as follows:
– propane: (160 ± 6) mg/s;

NOTE 1 This is approximately equivalent to a volume flow rate of (5,0 ± 0,2) l/min at reference conditions (1 bar and 20 °C).

– air: (1 600 ± 80) mg/s.

NOTE 2 This is approximately equivalent to a volume flow rate of (80 ± 4) l/min at reference conditions (1 bar and 20 °C).

5.4.3 Verification

The burner and control system shall be subject to verification following the procedure given in Clause 6.

5.5 Shock producing device

The shock producing device shall be a mild steel round bar (25 ± 0,1) mm in diameter and (600 ± 5) mm

long. The bar shall be freely pivoted about an axis parallel to the test wall, which shall be in the same

horizontal plane as, and (200 ± 5) mm away from, the upper edge of the wall. The axis shall divide the bar

into two unequal lengths, the longer length being (400 ± 5) mm which shall impact the wall. The bar shall

drop under its own weight from an angle of ( 60 )° to the horizontal to strike the upper steel support of the

wall at its midpoint as shown in Figure 1 and Figure 3.
5.6 Positioning of source of heat

The burner face shall be positioned in the test chamber such that it is at least 200 mm above the floor of the

chamber or any solid mounting block, and at least 500 mm from any chamber wall.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
SIST EN 50200:2016
EN 50200:2015

By reference to the wall the burner shall be positioned centrally at a horizontal distance of (40 ± 2) mm from

the burner face to the test wall as shown in Figure 2 and Figure 3.

NOTE The burner should be rigidly fixed to the framework during testing so as to prevent movement relative to the

test sample.
5.7 Fuses

Fuses used in the test procedures in Clause 8 shall comply with IEC 60269-3 Fuse System A-D Type DII, 2A.

Alternatively, a circuit breaker with equivalent characteristics may be used.

Where a circuit breaker is used, its equivalent characteristics shall be demonstrated by reference to the

characteristic curve shown in Annex C.
The fuse shall be the reference method in the case of dispute.
6 Verification procedure for source of heat
6.1 Measuring equipment

The flame temperature shall be measured using two 1,5 mm mineral insulated, stainless steel sheathed

thermocouples Type K to EN 60584-1, mounted on the test wall as shown in Figure 7. The thermocouple tips

shall be (10 ± 0,5) mm in front of the test wall. The horizontal line of the thermocouples shall be

(100 ± 10) mm above the bottom of the wall. The wall shall consist of a board of heat-resistant, non-

combustible and non-metallic material (900 ± 100) mm long, (300 ± 50) mm high and (10 ± 2) mm thick.

6.2 Procedure

Position the burner (40 ± 2) mm horizontally from the wall and (65 ± 10) mm vertically below the centre line

of the thermocouple as shown in Figure 3.
Ignite the burner and adjust the gas and air supplies to those given in 5.4.2.

Monitor the temperature as recorded by the thermocouples over a period of 10 min to ensure conditions are

stable.
6.3 Evaluation
The verification procedure shall be considered satisfied if

a) the arithmetic mean of the averaged readings for each of the two thermocouples over the 10 min period

+40
falls within the requirement of ( 830 ) °C and

b) the difference of the averaged readings for each of the two thermocouples over the 10 min period does

not exceed 40 °C.

At least one measurement shall be made on each thermocouple every 30 s in order to obtain the average.

NOTE The actual method of obtaining the average thermocouple reading over the period is not specified but it is

recommended that a recorder with averaging facilities be used in order to damp the variability caused by point

measurement.
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
SIST EN 50200:2016
EN 50200:2015
6.4 Further verification

If the verification is not successful, the flow rates shall be altered within the tolerances given in 5.4.2 and/or

distances altered within the tolerances given in 6.2 and a further verification carried out.

If no successful verification can be achieved within the tolerances given, then the burner system shall be

considered as incapable of providing the source of heat required by this European Standard.

6.5 Verification report

The position established for successful verification and flow rates used shall be recorded (see 8.1).

7 Test sample (Electric power and control cables with rated voltage up to and
including 600 V/1 000 V)
7.1 Sample preparation

The sample to be tested shall be a piece of cable not less than 1 200 mm long with approximately 100 mm of

sheath and outer coverings removed at each end. At each end of the test sample, each conductor shall be

suitably prepared for electrical connections, and, if there is more than one conductor, the exposed

conductors shall be spread apart to avoid contact with each other.
7.2 Sample mounting

The test sample shall be bent to form an approximate 'U' shape. The internal radius of each bend shall be

the manufacturer's declared minimum bending radius in normal use and the overall distance between the

vertical portions of the cable shall be (475 ± 10) mm as shown in Figure 8.

The test sample shall be mounted centrally on the wall using copper P clips. The clips, which shall be

earthed, shall support the cable at either end of the radiused section and in the centre as shown in Figure 8.

The type of clips used shall be detailed in the Test Report.

By agreement between the user and manufacturer of the cable alternative clips may be used for the testing

of multicore cable, but in this case the test shall only be considered valid for cable installed with such clips.
