This Part 15 details the particular specifications for single-core non-sheathed cables for fixed wiring at rated voltages up to and including 450/750 V, insulated with halogen-free thermoplastic compound and having low emission of smoke and corrosive gases when exposed to fire. For cables rated at 450/750 V there are two types, Type 1 and Type 2. Type 2 cables are required to meet a more severe test for resistance to flame propagation (EN 50266-2-4) than Type 1, and have particular suitability for installation in bunches (see also Annex C). The maximum permissible conductor temperature is 70 °C.
