|Publication Date:||1 July 2014|
|ICS Code (Coaxial cables. Waveguides):||33.120.10|
This European Standard details the method of test to determine the ability of the sheath markings of a finished cable used in analogue and digital communication systems to withstand abrasion.
It will be read in conjunction with EN 50289-3-1, which contains essential provisions for its application.
Depending on the kind of marking and as indicated in the relevant cable specification, one of the following two methods will be used:
- Method 1: is suitable for rigid marking types like embossing, indenting and sintering;
- Method 2: is applicable to marking types other than embossing, indenting and sintering.
