Thermocouples -- Part 3: Extension and compensating cables - Tolerances and identification system

This part of IEC 60584 specifies manufacturing tolerances for extension and compensating cables (other than mineral insulated cables) provided directly to users of industrial processes. These tolerances are determined with respect to the e.m.f.-temperature relationship of Part 1 of the standard. The method for identification of insulated thermocouple extension and compensating cables other than mineral insulated cables is described. Furthermore, requirements for extension and compensating cables for use in industrial process control are specified.

Thermopaare -- Teil 3: Thermoleitungen und Ausgleichsleitungen - Grenzabweichungen und Kennzeichnungssystem

Couples thermo�lectriques -- Partie 3: C�bles d'extension et de compensation - Tol�rances et syst�me d'identification

Spécifie les tolérances de fabrication pour les câbles d'extension et de compensation (autres que ceux à isolation minérale) fournis directement aux utilisateurs pour des procédés industriels. Ces tolérances sont déterminées par rapport à la relation fem-température de la Partie 1 de cette norme. De plus, des exigences sont spécifiées pour les câbles d'extension et de compensation pour utilisation dans des procédés industriels. Les principaux changements techniques par rapport à l'édition précédente sont les suivants : Ajout du Paragraphe 5.4 Connecteurs. Ajout des Articles 7 Dimensions et 8 Exigences.

This European Standard was approved by CENELEC on 2007-12-01. 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.

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 interna-

tional 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, Techni-

cal 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 organiza-

tions liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Or-

ganization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two


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 inter-

ested 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 misinter-

pretation 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 be-

tween 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 equip-

ment 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 ex-

penses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC Publica-


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.

International Standard IEC 60584-3 has been prepared by subcommittee 65B: Devices and

process analysis, of IEC Technical Committee 65: Industrial-process measurement, control

and automation.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 60584-3 issued in 1989. It

constitutes a technical revision.
The main technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows:
– Addition of Subclause 5.4 Connectors.
– Addition of Clauses 7 Dimensions and 8 Requirements.
