Information technology – Generic cabling – Industrial premises
|Publication Date:||1 October 2006|
|ICS Code (Interface and interconnection equipment):||35.200|
This International Standard specifies generic cabling that supports a wide range of communications services including automation, process control and monitoring applications for use within industrial premises or industrial areas within other types of premises, comprising single or multiple buildings on a campus. It covers balanced cabling and optical fibre cabling.
This standard is based upon and references the requirements of ISO/IEC 11801. It contains additional requirements that are appropriate to industrial premises in which the maximum distance over which communications services have to be distributed is 10 000 m. The principles of this International Standard may also be applied to installations that do not fall within this range.
In addition to the requirements of ISO/IEC 11801, this International Standard specifies
a) a modified structure and configuration for generic cabling within industrial premises in which information technology applications are used to support process monitoring and control functions,
b) implementation options,
c) additional requirements that reflect the range of operating environments within industrial premises.
Safety (electrical safety and protection, fire, etc.) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this International Standard and are covered by other standards and regulations. However, information given in this document may be of assistance in meeting these standards and regulations.
