Communication cables Part 2-29: Common design rules and construction - Crosslinked polyethylene insulation compounds: instrumentation, control and field bus cables

active, Most Current
Organization: CEI
Publication Date: 1 July 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 12
ICS Code (Plastics and rubber insulating materials): 29.035.20
ICS Code (Coaxial cables. Waveguides): 33.120.10
scope:

This Part 2-29 of EN 50290 gives specific requirements for Crosslinked Polyethylene (XLPE) compounds to be used for the insulation of instrumentation, control and field bus cables. There are several routes used for manufacture of XLPE insulated cables and as a consequence a number of different types of polyethylene compound may be specified. The compounds required for the different manufacturing processes are described (Table 1). The unstabilised materials require antioxidant to be added during the cable extrusion process.

It is essential to read this European Standard in conjunction with Part 2-20 of EN 50290, the product standards EN 50288-7 and EN 61158 and other applicable product standards.

Using raw material and type test data as outlined in this standard, the raw material supplier will have sufficient data to demonstrate compliance and warrant that the material is suitable for the specified application.
