BS EN 50483-5:2009 Test requirements for low voltage aerial bundled cable accessories. Electrical ageing test

The BS EN 50483 series applies to overhead line fittings for tensioning, supporting and connecting aerial bundled cables (ABC) of rated voltage U0/U (Um): 0,6/1 (1,2) kV.

BS EN 50483-5 applies to the connections described in BS EN 50483-4, including branch connectors, Insulation Piercing Connectors (IPC), pre-insulated lugs (terminals) and through pre-insulated connectors (sleeves).

The objective of BS EN 50483-5 is to provide a method of testing the suitability of connectors when used under normal operating conditions with low voltage aerial bundled cables complying with HD 626.

Two classes of connectors are covered by BS EN 50483-5:

• Class A: These are connectors intended for electricity distribution or industrial networks in which they can be subjected to short-circuits of relatively high intensity and duration. As a consequence, Class A connectors will be suitable for the majority of applications.
• Class B: These are connectors for networks in which overloads or short-circuits are rapidly cleared by the operation of protection devices.
