Preview Abstract IEC The optical power meter is zeroed and the changes in attenuation during the minutes burner application period are monitored.

Procedures and requirements — Electric Data Cables. It constitutes a technical revision. Circuit insulation Integrity in accordance with IEC IEC specifies tests for electric cable for circuit integrity under fire conditions.

The test sample provides cable fragment length at least mm. Result of the test is considered positive if at that time will not e considered a short circuit in the circuit being tested.

TC 20 – Electric cables rss. The following test report forms are related: The time of the fire is minutes. IEC details a method to assess the circuit integrity of optical fiber cables.

It is divided in following parts that describe the test modes, the conditions, and the equipment to use.

Details for the specific point of failure, continuity checking arrangement, test sample, test procedure and test report relevant to metallic data and telecom cables and optical fibre cables are not given by IEC The maximum change in attenuation a change from zero is recorded during the burner application period.


Procedures and requirements — Optic Fiber Cables.

IEC 60331-1:2018

IEC applies to the cables with a diameter greater than 20mm, and introduces the standards nd procedures for testing of cables exposed to fire and mechanical shock equipment according to The significant technical changes with respect to 603331-1 previous edition are as follows: IEC ed 1.

Procedures and requirements — Cables of rated voltage up to and including 0. During the test, to the wire cores of cable a voltage of the nominal value is applied for telecommunication cables equal to Vthereby creating a closed electric circuit.

Result of the test is considered positive if at that time will not be considered a short circuit in the circuit being researched.

Related publications IEC Annex A provides the jec of verification of the burner and control system used for the test. Cables of smaller diameter are intended to be tested using the apparatus, procedure and requirements of IEC In the 15 minutes period after the flame application, a maximum attenuation is also recorded.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in During the study, through all the cable wires is passed current with rated voltage and these cables are subjected to fire during min, where fire source is a gas burner set in conformity with standards, as well the echanical shock of the 5 minutes interval.

Fire Resisting Characteristics of Electrical Cables Apparatus

Procedures and requirements for fire ieec shock — Cables of rated voltage up to and including 0. To better simulate the real fire conditions, with mechanical stresses due to the fall of materials and with the presence of water, iiec testing conditions have been modified by changing the duration, increasing the temperature of the flame and by adding mechanical stresses and water spray. Tests for electric cables for fire conditions and shock- Circuit integrity.

Result of the test is considered positive if at that time will not be considered a short circuit in the circuit being tested.

Requirements are stated for an identification that may optionally be marked on the cable to signify compliance with this document. It is intended for use when testing cables of greater than 20 mm overall diameter. Bent wire on the U-shaped with a adius equal to the smallest permissible by the manufacturer, is mounted on a metal assay ladder.
