RISER CABLES TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
This Standard covers mechanical, electrical and flammability requirements for Riser cables. Depending upon the application and system requirements, this Standard provides choices for materials and transmission characteristics.
For those characteristics where no differentiation is made, the performance requirements are applicable to all cables. Selection of the applicable type shall be at the discretion of the user and shall be designated in the product specification.
The purpose of this Standard is to establish generic technical requirements that may be referenced by individual telecommunications cable specifications covering products intended for normal indoor premises use in the wiring systems of communications users. The parameters covered provide material, construction, and performance requirements.
Because this Standard does not cover all details of individual cable design, it cannot be used as a single document for procurement of product. This Standard is intended for use in conjunction with an individual product specification that provides complete design details for the specific cable type and designates the applicable performance requirements. Such individual cable specifications may be prepared either by the user or the manufacturer. The specification designated for procurement is at the option of the user.
