Tests for electric cables under fire conditions - Circuit integrity - Part 1: Test method for fire with shock at a temperature of at least 830 °C for cables of rated voltage up to and including 0,6/1,0 kV and with an overall diameter exceeding 20 mm
IEC 60331-1:2009 specifies the test apparatus and procedure and gives the performance requirements, including recommended flame application times, for low voltage power cables of rated voltage up to and including 0,6/1,0 kV and control cables with a rated voltage which are required to maintain circuit integrity when subject to fire and mechanical shock under specified conditions. It is intended for use when testing cables of greater than 20 mm overall diameter.
NOTE 1 Cables of smaller diameter shoulde tested using the apparatus, procedure and requirements of IEC 60331-2. This standard describes the means of test specimen preparation, the continuity checking arrangements, the electrical testing procedure, the method ofurning the cables and the method of shock production, and gives requirements for evaluating test results.
NOTE 2 Although the scope is restricted to cables with rated voltage up to and including 0,6/1,0 kV, the procedure maye used, with the agreement of the ma
