Cable trunking systems and cable ducting systems for electrical installations - Part 1: General requirements

This European Standard specifies requirements and tests for cable trunking systems (CTS) and cable ducting systems (CDS) intended for the accommodation, and where necessary for the electrically protective separation, of insulated conductors, cables and possibly other electrical equipment in electrical and/or communication systems installations. The maximum voltage of these installations is 1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. This standard does not apply to conduit systems, cable tray systems, cable ladder systems, power track systems or equipment covered by other standards. This Part 1 shall be used in conjunction with the relevant Part 2 for particular requirements. NOTE This Part 1 is not intended to be used by itself.

Elektroinstallationskanalsysteme für elektrische Installationen - Teil 1: Allgemeine Anforderungen

Diese Europäische Norm enthält Anforderungen und Prüfungen für Elektroinstallationskanalsysteme, die für die Aufnahme und, wo erforderlich, für die elektrische Trennung von isolierten Leitern, Kabeln, Leitungen und anderen elektrischen Betriebsmitteln in elektrischen Installationen und/oder Kommunikationssystemen vorgesehen sind. Die Höchstspannung dieser Installationen beträgt 1 000 V Wechselspannung bzw. 1 500 V Gleichspannung. Diese Norm gilt nicht für Elektroinstallationsrohrsysteme, Kabelbahnsysteme, Kabelleitersysteme, Strom-schienensysteme oder Betriebsmittel, die von anderen Normen abgedeckt sind. Dieser Teil 1 muss zusammen mit dem entsprechenden Teil 2 für die besonderen Anforderungen angewendet werden. ANMERKUNG Dieser Teil 1 ist nicht zur alleinigen Verwendung vorgesehen.

Systèmes de goulottes et de conduits profilés pour installations électriques - Partie 1: Règles générales

La présente Norme Européenne spécifie les règles et les essais pour les systèmes de goulottes et les systèmes de conduits-profilés destinés au logement de conducteurs isolés, câbles et éventuels autres équipements électriques et si nécessaire à leur séparation de protection électrique, dans des installations électriques et/ou de systèmes de communication. La tension maximale de ces installations est de 1 000 V en courant alternatif et 1 500 V en courant continu. La présente norme ne s'applique pas aux systèmes de conduit, systèmes de chemin de câble, systèmes d'échelle à câble, systèmes de canalisation préfabriquée ou aux équipements couverts par d’autres normes. La présente Partie 1 doit être utilisée conjointement avec la Partie 2 appropriée pour les règles particulières. NOTE La présente Partie 1 n’est pas destinée à être utilisée seule.

Sistemi kabelskih korit in sistemi kabelskih cevi za električne inštalacije – 1. del: Splošne zahteve

Ta evropski standard določa zahteve in preskuse za sisteme kabelskih korit (CTS) in sisteme kabelskih cevi (CDS), namenjene za namestitev in po potrebi električno zaščitno ločevanje izoliranih vodnikov, kablov in morda druge električne opreme ter inštalacij električnih in/ali komunikacijskih sistemov. Največja napetost teh inštalacij je 1000 V izmenične napetosti in 1500 V enosmerne napetosti. Ta standard se ne uporablja za sisteme kanalov, polic, lestvic, verige za prenos energije ali opremo, ki jo obravnavajo drugi standardi. Pričujoči 1. del se uporablja skupaj z ustreznim 2. delom za posebne zahteve.
OPOMBA: Pričujoči 1. del ni predviden za samostojno uporabo.

This European Standard was approved by CENELEC on 2005-04-01. 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,
