IEC 60230:2018 defines the procedure for carrying out withstand lightning and switching impulse tests and withstand superimposed impulse test on cables and their accessories. This document applies solely to the methods of carrying out the tests as such, independently of the problem of selecting the test levels to be specified. The voltages pertaining to the system on which cables and accessories are to be used are given in IEC 60183 or in the relevant product standard. This document specifies the following requirements: - the characteristics and state of the test installation and those parts of the procedure which are common to withstand tests and tests above the withstand level; - the procedure for carrying out withstand lightning, switching impulse tests and superimposed impulse test; - the procedure for carrying out tests above the withstand level which is intended for research purposes. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1966. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) the structure of the standard takes into account the current style of IEC standards; b) this document is no longer a “Recommendation” but an “International Standard”; c) the test installation is no longer related to gas-pressure and oil-filled cables only; d) switching-impulse voltage and superimposed impulse voltage tests have been included; e) for the measuring system the reference to IEC 60060-2 has been added. The reference to the sphere gap method has been moved to Annex B.

EN 50399 specifies the apparatus and methods of test for the assessment of vertical flame spread, heat release, smoke production and occurrence of flaming droplets/particles of vertically-mounted bunched wires or cables, electrical or optical, under defined conditions. NOTE For the purpose of this standard the term "electric wire or cable" covers all insulated metallic conductor cables used for the conveyance of energy or signals. EN 50399 details the apparatus and the arrangement and calibration of the instrumentation to be installed in order to measure the heat release and the smoke production during the test. The combustion gases are collected in a hood above the test chamber and conveyed through an exhaust system, which allows the measurement of heat release rate and smoke production. Test procedures to be used for type approval testing for classification of cables in Euroclasses B1ca, B2ca, Cca and Dca are given. Cable installation on the test ladder and the volume of air passing through the chamber are in accordance with the Commission Decision 2006/751/EC [2] which is reflected in the requirements of this standard. The apparatus described in this standard shall be used in conjunction with that described in EN 60332 3 10.

NOTE 1 For some types of flexible cables, the term "cord" is used. NOTE 2 Rated voltages are given by reference to alternating current (a.c.) systems. Use of the cables in direct current (d.c.) systems is permitted. NOTE 3 National regulations may prescribe additional performance requirements for cables that are not given in the particular requirements. For example for buildings with high levels of public access, additional fire performance requirements may be applicable, The test methods for checking conformity with the requirements are given in other standards (see Introduction). The particular types of cables are specified in EN 50525-2 (series) and EN 50525-3 (series). The individual parts within those two series are collectively referred to hereafter as "the particular specifications". Only the sizes (conductor class, cross-sectional area), number of cores, other constructional features and rated voltages given in the particular specification apply to the individual cable type. The code designations of these types of cables are in accordance with HD 361.

HD 620 applies to cables with extruded insulation and for rated voltages Uo/U(Um) from 3,6/6 (7,2) kV up to 20,8/36(42) kV used in power distribution systems of voltages not exceeding the maximum r.m.s. value of the system voltage Um. This Part (Part 1) specifies the general requirements applicable to these cables, unless otherwise specified in the particular sections of this HD. Test methods specified are given EN 60228, EN 60229, EN 60332-1-2, EN 60811, EN 60885-3, HD 605 and HD 632. Attention should be drawn to the fact that a significant number of sections include references to long term tests which are collected in HD 605. These long-term tests are considered as necessary and reflect the best available knowledge for the existing cable design. They are related to specific designs and different philosophies concerning adequate measures against the influence of water. However it is the firm intention to reduce this large number of different tests, but more experience should be gained before starting to rationalise this important matter. The particular types of cables are specified in Parts 9 to 11. NOTE Cables originally in Parts 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 have now been withdrawn.

IEC 60811-510:2012 specifies the test method for a wrapping test after thermal ageing in air. This test method applies specifically to polyolefin insulation in communication cables. This test is intended for polyolefin insulations of unfilled cables and of dry cores for filled cables, where the insulation has a wall thickness of less than or equal to 0,8 mm. IEC 60811-510:2012 cancels and replaces Clause 10 of IEC 60811-4-2:2004, which is withdrawn. Full details of the replacements are shown in Annex A of IEC 60811-100:2012. There are no specific technical changes with respect to the previous edition, but see the Foreword to IEC 60811-100:2012. This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60811-100:2012.
