Electric cables - Low voltage energy cables of rated voltages up to and including 450/750 V (U0/U) - Part 2-83: Cables for general applications - Multicore cables with crosslinked silicone rubber insulation
|Publication Date:||1 May 2011|
|ICS Code (Cables):||29.060.20|
This European Standard applies to multicore cables insulated and sheathed with heat resistant crosslinked silicone rubber. Types with or without an overall textile braid, and with or without a strain-bearing element, are included.
The cables are of rated voltages U0/U 300/500 V.
The cables are intended for use within high temperature zones, either:
- in fixed installations with mechanical protection (cables to 4.1); or
- for flexible use under low mechanical stress (cables to 4.2).
The maximum conductor operating temperature for each of the cables in this standard is 180 °C.
NOTE HD 516 contains extensive guidance on the safe use of cables in this standard.
This EN 50525-2-83 should be read in conjunction with EN 50525-1, which specifies general requirements.
