This European Standard specifies the constructional details and performances requirements for cables for indoor residential cabling systems characterized up to 100 MHz. Cables in this European Standard are based on the common design rules specified in EN 50290-2-1 and are specifically intended for supporting ICT and BCT applications (telephone, computer and TV services) as specified in EN 50173-4.
The cables covered in this European Standard are intended to operate with voltages and currents normally encountered in communications systems. These cables are not intended to be used in conjunction with low impedance sources, for example, the electrical power supply of public utility mains.
Cables covered in this European Standard may however be subjected to voltages of not more than 300 V a.c. or 450 V d.c. and comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive.
The maximum current rating per conductor is 3 A/mm² unless otherwise specified in the relevant detail specification.
