Coaxial cables - Part 1: Generic specification

This document covers coaxial cables for use in analogue and digital systems. This document should be used in conjunction with EN 50290-1-1. Coaxial cables covered by this document operate in transverse electromagnetic mode (TEM) and are suitable for use in a wide range of digital and analogue applications including CATV, radio frequency systems, instrumentation, broadcasting, telecommunications and data network systems. Various constructions and materials provide for indoor and outdoor applications, including underground and overhead installations, and other environmental protection characteristics. Generally, cables are designed for use in 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm characteristic impedance systems, although other types (e.g. 93/95 Ohm) are also covered. Coaxial cables defined by this document may be incorporated into hybrid cable constructions with optical fibre or multi-element cable components. All cables covered by this document may be subjected to voltages greater than 50 V AC or 75 V DC according to the relevant sectional or detail specification. However, these cables are not intended for direct connection to the mains electricity supply or other low impedance sources.

Koaxialkabel - Teil 1: Fachgrundspezifikation

Câbles coaxiaux - Partie 1: Spécification générique

Le présent document européen s’applique aux câbles coaxiaux destinés à être utilisés dans des réseaux analogiques et numériques. Il convient d’utiliser le présent document conjointement avec l’EN 50290-1-1. Les câbles coaxiaux couverts par le présent document fonctionnent en mode transversal électromagnétique (TEM) et sont adaptés à un large éventail d’applications numériques et analogiques y compris la CATV, les systèmes RF, l’instrumentation, la radiodiffusion et les réseaux de données et de télécommunications. Les différentes constructions et les différents matériaux qui existent permettent des applications intérieures et extérieures, y compris des installations en souterrain et en aérien et d’autres caractéristiques de protection environnementales. Généralement, les câbles sont conçus pour être utilisés dans des réseaux ayant une impédance caractéristique de 50 Ohm et 75 Ohm, bien que d’autres types (par ex. 93/95 Ohm) soient également couverts. Les câbles coaxiaux définis par le présent document peuvent être incorporés à des constructions de câbles hybrides avec des composants de câbles à fibres optiques ou à éléments multiples. Tous les câbles couverts par le présent document peuvent être soumis à des tensions supérieures à 50 V en courant alternatif ou 75 V en courant continu conformément à la spécification intermédiaire ou particulière applicable. Cependant, ces câbles ne sont pas destinés à être directement raccordés au réseau électrique d’alimentation ou à d’autres sources de faible impédance.

Koaksialni kabli - 1. del: Splošna specifikacija

Ta evropski standard zajema koaksialne kable za uporabo v analognih in digitalnih sistemih. Ta standard naj bi se uporabljal v povezavi s standardom EN 50290-1-1.
Koaksialni kabli, vključeni v ta standard, delujejo v prečnem elektromagnetnem polju (TEM) ter so primerni za številne različne digitalne in analogne načine uporabe, vključno s sistemi CATV, radiofrekvenčnimi sistemi, instrumenti, oddajnimi sistemi, telekomunikacijskimi sistemi ter sistemi podatkovnih omrežij. Različne konstrukcije in materiali omogočajo notranjo in zunanjo uporabo, vključno s podzemnimi in nadzemnimi napravami, ter druge karakteristike varovanja okolja.
Na splošno so kabli zasnovani za uporabo v značilnih impedančnih sistemih 50 ohmov in 75 ohmov, čeprav so zajeti tudi drugi tipi (npr. 93/95 ohmov).
Koaksialni kabli, opredeljeni s tem standardom, se lahko vgradijo v konstrukcije hibridnih kablov z optičnimi vlakni ali večelementnimi kabelskimi komponentami.
Vsi kabli, ki jih zajema ta standard, so lahko izpostavljeni napetostim, večjim od 50 V izmenične napetosti ali 75 V enosmerne napetosti, v skladu z ustreznimi področnimi ali podrobnimi specifikacijami. Vendar ti kabli niso namenjeni za neposredno priključitev na električno omrežje ali druge vire z nizko impedanco.
