This European Standard specifies the composition, property requirements including electrical properties, and tolerances on dimensions and form for copper rod, bar and wire for general electrical purposes. Cross-sections and size ranges are:
- round, square and hexagonal rod with diameters or widths across-flats from 2 mm up to and including 160 mm;
- bar with thicknesses from 2 mm up to and including 40 mm and widths from 3 mm up to and including 200 mm;
- round, square, hexagonal and rectangular wire with diameters or widths across-flats from 2 mm up to and including 25 mm, as well as thicknesses from 0,5 mm up to and including 12 mm with widths from 1 mm up to and including 200 mm.
The sampling procedures and test methods for verification of conformity to the requirements of this standard are also specified.
NOTE Drawn, round copper wire - plain or tinned, single or multiline - for the manufacture of electrical conductors is specified in EN 13602.
