Operating conditions for cables



The used cables have to be appropriate for the corresponding operating conditions as well as for the device protection class. Operating conditions are among others:

  • Voltage
  • Current
  • Safety apparatus
  • Cable accumulation
  • Type of laying
  • Accessibility

The used cables have to be appropriate for all possible external impacts. External impacts are among others:

  • Ambient temperature
  • Rain
  • Steam or water
  • Presence of corrosive, polluting or other chemical bodies
  • Mechanical stress (e.g. sharp edges of metal constructions)
  • Animals (e.g. rodents)
  • Plants (e.g. mould fungus)
  • Radiation (e.g. solar radiation)

Note: In this connection it has to be considered that the colour is of greatest importance. The colour black offers much more protection at radiation that all other colours.
