EN ISO 4892-2. There shall be continuous exposure to light and intermittent exposure to water spray.

The cycle shall consist of 102 min without water spray and 18 min with water spray. The apparatus

shall operate with a water-cooled xenon-arc lamp, borosilicate glass inner and outer optical filters, a

spectral irradiance of (0,51 ± 0,02) W/m /nm at 340 nm and a black panel temperature of (65 ± 3) °C.

11.1.3 Ultraviolet light conditioning is not required for a metallic cable tie or fixing device or for a

metallic cable tie having a non-metallic coating when the non-coated version complies with the

requirements in 11.2.

11.1.4 Following the exposure in 11.1.2 and stabilisation for a period according to Table 1, the

following applies.

Each sample of a cable tie classified according to 6.2.1 shall be subjected to a tensile pull. The

maximum force is measured. No individual value shall be less than 50 % of the loop tensile strength

declared according to 6.2.

Each sample of a cable tie classified according to 6.2.2 shall be subjected to a tensile pull until the

load equivalent to the loop tensile strength declared by the manufacturer is reached. This load is

maintained for (60 ) s.

The samples shall be deemed to have passed the test if the samples perform according to the

requirements in 9.6.1.

Each sample of a fixing device shall be subjected to a tensile pull until the mechanical strength

declared by the manufacturer is reached. This load is maintained for (60 ) s.

After the test, there shall be no sign of disintegration nor shall there be any crack visible to normal or

corrected vision.

CABLE TIES FOR ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

5 General notes on tests

5.1 Tests according to this standard are type tests. Unless otherwise specified, tests are

carried out with the cable ties and their associated fixing devices, where available, installed

as in normal use according to the manufacturer's instructions.

NOTE For guidance in determining product types and sample sets, a family of cable ties or fixing devices having

material, construction characteristics, and classifications according to Clause 6, in common, are considered of the

same product type. Examples for consideration are material colours, or variable lengths of a cable tie of otherwise

like construction.

The sample sets selected for testing from each product type should represent the extremes of the range (example:

shortest and longest), and the minimum performance level obtained for either extreme should be determined to be

representative of the entire range.

Consideration should be given to minor construction variations that can be determined by inspection to have no

affect on performance, when determining product types.

5.2 Unless otherwise specified, tests on non-metallic and composite components shall

commence when the samples have been removed from their packaging and then stabilised at

a temperature of (23 ± 5)º C and at a relative humidity of (50 ± 5) %, for a period as indicated

in Table 1.

NOTE This stabilisation intends to achieve equilibrium of moisture content for all samples before and after further

conditioning and testing. Stabilisation time may be reduced if the product’s moisture equilibrium is validated by a

calibrated moisture analyzer device. Stabilisation time determined by this method may be different for as-received

samples and following each required further conditioning.
Table 1 – Stabilisation time for samples
Reference thickness (RT) of the device Stabilization time

7 ± 1
RT ≤ 1,2
1,2 < RT ≤ 1,4
1,4 < RT

The reference thickness of a cable tie is measured at the midpoint of the strap. The reference

thickness of a fixing device shall be the smallest cross section in the area that interfaces with

the cable tie or as declared by the manufacturer. See Figure 1.

5.3 Unless otherwise specified, the tests shall be carried out at an ambient temperature of

(23 ± 5) °C and with a relative humidity of between 40 % and 60 %.

5.4 Unless otherwise specified, three new samples are submitted to the tests and the

requirements are satisfied if all the tests are met. If only one of the samples does not satisfy a

test due to an assembly or manufacturing fault, that test and any preceding one which may

have influenced the results of the test shall be repeated and also the tests which follow shall

be made in the required sequence on another full set of samples, all of which shall comply

with the requirements.

NOTE The applicant, when submitting the first set of samples, may also submit an additional set of samples which

may be necessary should one sample fail. The test station will then without further request test the additional set of

samples and will reject only if a further failure occurs.

If the additional set of samples is not submitted at the same time, a failure of one sample will

entail a rejection.

5.5 When toxic or hazardous processes are used, due regard shall be taken of the safety of

persons within the test area.

5.6 Unless otherwise specified, the cross-head speed of a tensile machine used during the

tests shall be (25 ± 2,5) mm/min.

5.7 Where required for heat ageing, a full draft circulating-air oven as specified in

IEC 60216-4-1 shall be used. A portion of the air shall be allowed to re-circulate and a

substantial amount of air shall be admitted continuously to maintain the normal air content

surrounding the samples. The oven shall be adjusted to achieve more than 5 complete fresh-

air changes per hour.

5.8 A fixing device that is integral to a cable tie shall comply with the requirements for both

the fixing device and the cable tie.

SIST EN 62275:2009
62275 © IEC:2006 – 17 –

5.9 Unless otherwise specified, when conducting the tests on cable ties in Clause 9, the

samples shall be installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions on a steel or

aluminium mandrel which has a diameter A:

– equal to (20 ± 2) mm for cable ties with a maximum declared diameter of 38 mm or less; or

– equal to (38 ± 2) mm for cable ties with a maximum declared diameter greater than 38 mm.

The width B of the mandrel shall be at least 5 mm greater than the maximum width of the

cable tie as shown in Figure 2.

If the cable tie is too short to meet the diameter of the test mandrel, then a test mandrel that

has the maximum diameter as declared by the manufacturer shall be used.

If the minimum diameter of the cable tie is greater than the diameter of the test mandrel, then

a test mandrel that has the minimum diameter as declared by the manufacturer shall be used.

For the loop tensile strength tests, the mandrel shall be split in two equal parts and the cable

ties positioned as shown in Figure 2.

The excess end (tail) of the cable tie is permitted to be cut off after assembly, except in the

tests where marking is required for the purpose of measurement (see 9.6).
