IEC 60332-3C PDF

Burning Behaviour of Bunched Cables. IEC The European Commission and The European Cable Industry (EUROPACABLE) are finalising. Definitions. IEC refers to various definitions, together with the following during the standard: .. F – B F. Category C, designation F – 3C F. IECC describes a method of type approval testing to define the ability of bunched cables to resist fire propagation. In this test, a cable specimen.

In this test, a cable specimen, consisting of number of 3. Compared with normal PVC cable, LSZH cable ieec by its fire retardant properties, low corrosivity and low smoke emission properties, however, normal PVC cables has better mechanical and electrical properties. Resistance to fire with mechanical shock — the final requirement is mechanical shock damage. The CMG cables are usually used in runs penetrating single floor.

Fire Testing

However, in European countries, 06332-3c content, the corrosivity of the gases, the smoke density and the toxicity of the gas are equally important factors affecting the safety and survival of human during a fire. It details the following methods to categorize the cables according to cable withstand capacities.

BS BS specifies the performance requirements for cables required to maintain ied integrity under fire conditions. A Judges Scientific plc Company. The test method is not suitable for the testing of some small wires due to the melting of the conductors during the time of application of the flame.

In this test, when the burner is heated to C, 1g sample is placed inside and the HCL is absorbed into water inside the chamber fed with air flow. Addison Fire Resistant Cable. The cable is defined as fire resisting ifunder the conditions of this test, it being assumed that the test flame intensity is of sufficient magnitude to destroy the organic material, no failure of any of the 3A fuses occurs and if the withstand voltage on completion is not less than the rated voltage of the cable.


BS specifies the performance requirements for cables required to maintain circuit integrity under fire conditions.

System 6 UTP LSOH Cable (IEC 60332-3C) – International

To qualify for a riser rating, the cables must have the flame spread of less than 12 feet beyond the ignition point. Test for vertical flame spread of verticallymounted bunched wires or cables – Category A.

IEC details a method of test for assessing the fire resisting characteristics of a cable. The temperature index of the coal is defined as C.

Test for vertical flame spread of vertically-mounted bunched wires or cables – Category D -Installation In one layer front.

Reduced Fire Propagation in accordance with IEC |FAQ

The specimen is deemed to pass this test if the pH value is not less than 4. Home Product Dispaly Navigation. The standard is subdivided in several parts that differ one from the other for the quantity of cable to be installed, the installation mode and the 63032-3c application time. Smoke Measurement Systems FTT can supply either laser or white light systems for smoke measurement in compliance with the standard.

Cable samples on a horizontal tray in a tunnel ic of chamber are burned at This cable cannot be installed in bundles and must be protected in metal conduit. Tests on electric and optical fiber cables under fire conditions – Part Method A and B.


For each gas, the measured concentration Ci is scaled up for g and the concentration is recalculated as though the combustion products is diffused into a volume of exactly 1m3. This test specifies a method for the determination of degree of acidity of gases evolved during combustion of cables taken from uec cable sample by measuring its pH and conductivity.

The test consists of 25 feet long ventilated tunnel.

This specifies a test for determination of the amount of halogen acid gas, other than the hydrofluoric acidevolve d during combustion of compound based on halogenated polymers and compounds containing halogenated additives taken from cable constructions. Iecc resistant cables are designed for maintaining circuit integrity during a fire.

Fire Testing Technology | IEC

Modifying Existing IEC Apparatus To Measure Heat Release Conversion of existing IEC apparatus 63032-3c measure heat release is accomplished by fitting a small instrumented section of ducting into the exhaust system of the rig and using 60332-3c with associated FTT gas analysis instrumentation and software and a modified test protocol. The former is calculated by continuous measurement of the oxygen consumed and carbon dioxide generated in the combustion process.

Carbon Dioxide Analyser infrared for use in heat release measurement. IEC fire performance standard. The Classification utilises the results obtained from traditional IEC test equipment fitted with heat and smoke release measurement instrumentation.
