This document applies to cable reels provided with a non-detachable flexible cable with a rated operating voltage not exceeding 690 V DC and/or 690 V AC with a frequency not exceeding 500 Hz and a rated current not exceeding 63 A, primarily intended for industrial use, either indoors or outdoors, for use with accessories complying with IEC 60309-1, IEC 60309-2 or IEC 60309-4.
This document applies to:
- portable cable reels equipped with one plug or appliance-inlet complying with IEC 60309-1 or IEC 60309-2 and at least one socket-outlet complying with IEC 603091, IEC 60309-2 or IEC 60309-4;
- fixed cable reels equipped with at least one socket-outlet complying with IEC 60309-1, IEC 60309-2 or IEC 60309-4;
- cable reels suitable for use at ambient temperature normally within the range of −25 °C to +40 °C.
The use of this equipment on construction sites and for agricultural, commercial and domestic appliances is not precluded.
This document also applies to cable reels intended to be used in extra-low voltage installations.
In locations where special conditions prevail, for example, on board ships, in vehicles and the like, or where explosions are liable to occur, additional requirements can be necessary.
NOTE 1 This document was not developed for Electric Vehicle (EV) application, but it can be used as guide for cable reels for EV application
NOTE 2 Additional requirements for cable reels for currents higher than 63 A are under consideration.
