This document specifies requirements for, and constructions and dimensions of, multicore cables, rated voltage U0/ U = 300/500 V, of the following type: Screened (0,5 mm2 to 2,5 mm2, number of cores from 1 to 8). All cables have stranded tinned copper conductors, and thin wall thickness, halogen-free, insulation and sheath. They are for use in railway rolling stock as fixed wiring or wiring where limited flexing in operation is encountered. These cables are rated for occasional thermal stresses causing ageing equivalent to continuous operational life at a temperature of 90 °C. For standard cables, this is determined by the acceptance test defined in EN 50305, using accelerated long-term (5 000 h) thermal ageing indicating a 110 °C/20 000 h temperature index. If the customer were to require lifetime predictions this would be demonstrated based on the temperature index of the product as supplied by the manufacturer. The maximum temperature for short circuit conditions is 160 °C based on duration of 5 s. Under fire conditions, the cables exhibit special performance characteristics in respect of maximum permissible flame propagation (flame spread) and maximum permissible emission of smoke and toxic gases. These requirements are specified to permit the cables to satisfy Hazard Level 3 of EN 45545 1 and EN 45545 2. EN 50306 3:2020 is expected to be used in conjunction with EN 50306 1:2020, General Requirements, and EN 50306 2:2020, Single core cables.

This HD collates and specifies the test methods to be used for testing polymeric insulated and sheathed electric cables, of rated voltage up to and including 20,8/36 kV, intended for public distribution systems, and for use in power generating plants and sub-stations. Test methods in this HD are additional to those already harmonized, e.g. EN 60332-1 series and EN 60811 series, and are used for testing cable types specified in HD 603, HD 604, HD 620, HD 622, HD 626 and HD 627. In each case, these HDs give complementary information needed for the practical application to each specific type. Therefore the present HD as such is not sufficient for carrying out and evaluating the tests on electric cables. Full test conditions (e.g. temperatures, durations) and/or test requirements are not specified in this HD. Such data needed to carry out the tests is given in the particular sections. NOTE The words 'particular section' refer throughout to the section of HD 603 or HD 604, or other HD to which HD 605 applies, in which a particular cable type is specified.

Component basic functions can be conductive, stress control or stress grading, insulating, oil barrier, anti-tracking, external protection and sealing. Components are supplied as single layer items or as multi-layer items. Components are generally supplied pre-expanded or with a system allowing expansion prior to installation. NOTE Information on health and safety is given in Annex A.

This standard specifies design, dimensions and test requirements for halogen-free cables with extruded insulation and sheath having a voltage rating of up to and including 450/750 V for flexible applications under severe condition for the power supply between the electricity supply point or the charging station and the vehicle. The EV charging cable is intended to supply power and if needed communication (details see IEC 61851 series and IEC 62196 series) to an electric vehicle. The charging cables are applicable for charging modes 1-3 of IEC 61851-1. Cables with rated voltage 300/500 V are only permitted for charging mode 1 of IEC 61851-1. The maximum conductor operating temperatures for the cables in this standard is 90°C. The cables may be a) an integral part of the vehicle (case A of IEC 61851-1), or b) a detachable cable assembly with a vehicle connector and AC supply connection to a socket outlet (case B of IEC 61851-1), or c) permanently attached to a fixed charging point (case C of IEC 61851-1). This standard describes cables whose safety and reliability is ensured when they are installed and/or used in accordance to the guide to use EN 50565-1 and ANNEX B.

TThis Technical Specification gives the procedure and rules for extended application of results of tests carried out according to the test methods described in EN 50399, EN 60332 1 2 and EN 61034 2. The EXAP rules described apply to EN 50399 test results used for classification in classes B2ca,Cca and Dca, additional smoke production classes s1, s2 and s3 and flaming droplets/particles, to EN 60332 1 2 test results used for classification in classes B2ca,Cca, Dca and Eca and to EN 61034 2 test results used for classification in classes s1a and s1b. Cables of diameter 5,0 mm and less should be tested as bundles according to EN 50399 and are excluded from these rules. Bundled cables are not included in the EXAP rules applying to EN 50399 test results. The rules apply to circular and non-circular cables provided that they fall within the scope of the relevant test method. A specific EXAP rule has been developed for the most common generic power cable families and optical fibre cables. A general EXAP rule has been developed for any power cable families. The general EXAP rule is not applicable to communication or optical fibre cables. NOTE 1 Multicore power cables with more than 5 cores are sometimes referred to as control cables with a rated voltage but for the purposes of this standard are considered as power cables. The general EXAP rule may be applied in the case of hybrid cables provided that the conditions of 6.1 are fulfilled. The use of the specific EXAP rule gives benefit in the lower number of cables to be tested for a range of cable constructions (product family). An EXAP is only possible when cables belong to a defined family as defined in this Technical Specification. NOTE 2 No EXAP procedure and rules have been developed in respect of the results of tests carried out according to the test method described in EN 60754–2. As the parameters (pH and conductivity) for each cable in a family are determined based upon calculation using material test results, this is considered as a matter of direct application. Material test results taken from any one sample of finished cable from a family are sufficient to calculate the parameters for each cable in the family.

This European Standard specifies a test method to evaluate the maintenance of circuit integrity of electric cables which have intrinsic resistance to fire under fire conditions, in order to classify the electric cable according to EN 13501-3 [2]. The test determines the survival time for circuit integrity of the electric cable when exposed to fire under the conditions of the EN 1363-1 standard time/temperature curve. This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1. This European Standard applies to electric power and control cables with rated voltage up to and including 600/1 000 V. The cable is tested in a standardized representative installation condition. The test does not assess the performance of the cable management system. NOTE Optical and data cables could be tested using this method but do not form part of this European Standard as the verification procedures for such cables are still under development. This European Standard includes (Annex A) field of direct application and rules for extended application of test results (EXAP).

This European Standard specifies the test method for cables designed to have intrinsic resistance to fire and intended for use as emergency circuits for alarm, lighting and communication purposes. This European Standard is applicable to cables for emergency circuits of rated voltage not exceeding 600 V/1 000 V, including those of rated voltage below 80 V and optical fibre cables. This European Standard includes details for the specific point of failure, continuity checking arrangement, test sample, test procedure and test report relevant to electric power and control cables with rated voltage up to and including 600 V/1 000 V. Details for the specific point of failure, continuity checking arrangement, test sample, test procedure and test report relevant to copper data and telecom cables and optical cables are given in the relevant standards of CLC/TC 46X and CLC/TC 86A. The test method is limited to cables with an overall diameter not exceeding 20 mm. The test method is based on the direct impingement of flame from a propane burner giving a constant temperature attack of a notional 842 °C. It is intended to be used for cables for emergency circuits suitable for alarm, emergency lighting and communication. NOTE When the test method is used in support of EN 13501-3, it only applies to cables of less than 20 mm diameter, and, for metallic conductor cables, to those with conductor sizes up to and including 2,5 mm². For optical cables, only the less than 20 mm diameter limit applies. This European Standard includes (Annex B) the field of direct application and rules for extended application of test results (EXAP). Details regarding classification using data from this test are given in EN 13501-3 . Information regarding classification is given in Annex D. This European Standard also includes informative guidance (Annex E) on a means of applying a water spray to the cable during the test. Such a requirement may be a feature of particular product standards.

IEC 60885-3:2015 is available as IEC Standards+ 60885-3:2015 which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition. IEC 60885-3:2015 specifies the test methods for partial discharge (PD) measurements on lengths of extruded power cable, but does not include measurements made on installed cable systems. Reference is made to IEC 60270 which gives the techniques and considerations applicable to partial discharge measurements in general. This second edition of IEC 60885-3 cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1988 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - The definition of sensitivity as twice the background noise level has been removed and replaced by a practical assessment of sensitivity based on the minimum level of detectable discharge. - References to measurements of pulse heights in mm on an oscilloscope have been replaced by measurements of partial discharge magnitude in pC. - The order of the clauses has been revised in line with the general numbering scheme of IEC standards and to provide clarity in order to facilitate its practical use. Section 3 of the first edition (Application guide) has been removed as it is considered that background information is better obtained from the original references as listed in the bibliography.
