This document describes 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 according to EN 13501 6 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. No EXAP procedure and rules have been developed in respect to 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. Cables with a diameter of 5,0 mm or less are expected to be tested as bundles according to EN 50399. Cables with a diameter of less than or equal to 5,0 mm are included in the specific and general EXAP rules for single core unsheathed power cables only. 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 any of the types of electric cable families as defined in this document. A general EXAP rule has been developed for all electric cable families unless otherwise stated elsewhere in this document. NOTE 1 Multicore power cables are sometimes referred to as control cables with a rated voltage but for the purposes of this document are considered as power cables. For multipair, multitriple and multiquad control cables, either the general EXAP rule or the specific EXAP rule for power cables or the specific EXAP rule for communication cables can be applied. 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 family as defined in this document. NOTE 2 For the purposes of this document, the term "electric cables" also covers optical fibre cables.

This European Standard gives the general requirements for rigid and flexible energy cables of rated voltages U0/U up to and including 450/750 V AC, used in power installations and with domestic and industrial appliances and equipment. NOTE 1 For some types of flexible cables, the term "cord" is used. NOTE 2 Rated voltages are given by reference to alternating current systems. Use of the cables in direct current 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.

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 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 60754-2:2011 specifies the apparatus and procedure for the determination of the potential corrosivity of gases evolved during the combustion of materials taken from electric or optical fibre cable constructions by measuring the acidity (pH) and conductivity of an aqueous solution resulting from the gases evolved during the combustion. The general method specified in this standard is intended for the testing of individual components used in a cable construction. Formulae are given for the calculation of a weighted value for a combination of materials found in a specified cable. The use of this method will enable the verification of relevant requirements for either individual components or combined components of a cable construction stated in the appropriate cable specification. A simplified method is included for the testing of individual components where it is required only to demonstrate compliance with a stated performance requirement for quality control purposes. The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: - improved definition of safety requirements relating to capture of gases; - introduction of guidance on the preparation of test specimens for more even combustion; - better expression of tolerances and precision; - clarification of the conductivity and acidity functions; - improved definition of the heating procedure; - greater precision in the definition of the test temperature for the determination of pH value and conductivity; - correction of the formulae for the calculation of the test results.
