Instructions for the safe application of cables

 

The cables manufactured by SAB Bröckskes are only appropriate for the transmission of electric energy for supply and signalling purposes.

First of all the valid construction and installation prescriptions for the corresponding machine or equipment has to be observed. The valid VDE prescription 0100 can be regarded as base. Furthermore, the following security advice has to be observed for the use of cables.


For each cable type you can find under "technical data" information on fields that can also be found under the following standards. Among others these are:

  • Nominal voltage/ Peak operating voltage HD 516 
  • Test voltage DIN VDE 0250 T1; EN 50525-1 as well as relevant cable standards
  • Minimum bending radius HD 516 
  • Temperature range HD 516
  • Fire performance IEC 60332 as well as relevant cable standards
  • Resistances EN 60811-404 as well as relevant cable standards

 

The safe application is described under "security requirements" and "boundary conditions".

 

Under "security requirements" you will find information on fields that can also be found under the following standards. Among others these are:

  • Basic requirements HD 516 S2 + A1:2003 pos. 4.1
  • General requirements HD 516 S2 + A1:2003 pos. 4.2
  • Current-carrying capacity for undisturbed service DIN VDE 0298 T4 pos. 5
  • Operating conditions DIN VDE 0298 T4 pos.5.3.1
  • Ambient conditions DIN VDE 0298 T4 pos. 5.3.3
  • Requirements for fixed laying HD 516 pos 4.3
  • Requirements for flexible cables HD 516 pos. 4.4
