CENELEC - EN 50173-4

Information technology - Generic cabling systems - Part 4: Homes

inactive
Organization: CENELEC
Publication Date: 1 May 2007
Status: inactive
Page Count: 48
ICS Code (Lines, connections and circuits): 33.040.50
scope:

This European Standard specifies generic cabling in homes, installed to support one or more of the following groups of applications and based upon balanced and coaxial cabling as appropriate:

1) Information and Communications Technologies (ICT);

2) Broadcast and Communications Technologies (BCT);

3) Commands, Controls and Communications in Buildings (CCCB).

A home may contain one or more buildings or may be within a building that contains more than one home.

This European Standard is based upon and references the requirements of EN 50173-1. In addition to the requirements of EN 50173-1, this European Standard specifies the following aspects of generic home cabling:

a) structure and topology;

b) minimum configuration;

c) performance requirements for permanent links and channels1);

d) density and location of connection points;

e) interfaces to application-specific equipment and external networks;

f) coexistence with other building services.

Safety (electrical safety and protection, optical power, fire, etc.) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this European Standard and are covered by other standards and regulations. However, information given in this European Standard may be of assistance in meeting these standards and regulations.

NOTE 1 National regulations and local codes may preclude carrying certain services on the cabling specified in this standard.

NOTE 2 Test requirements in this standard are for system designers.

NOTE 3 The installation tests should be decided between supplier and customer or according to the relevant installation guide.

NOTE 4 Audio/video applications are traditionally supported by application-specific cabling implemented with cabling systems based on EN 50083 (see Annex D). Such cabling systems may co-exist with generic cabling specified by this European Standard.

1) This term, as defined in EN 50173-1, refers to the passive cabling between the interfaces described in Clauses 4 and 5. Differing definitions of the term "channel" as given in other standards are not applicable in this European Standard.
