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. This Part 5 applies to the connections described in EN 50483-4, including branch connectors, Insulation Piercing Connectors (IPC), pre-insulated lugs (terminals) and through pre-insulated connectors (sleeves). The objective 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 this standard: 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. Depending on their application, the connectors are subjected to heat cycles and short-circuit current tests. Class A: the connectors are subjected to heat cycles and short-circuit current tests. Class B: the connectors are subjected to heat cycles only. The object of this Part 5 is to define the heating cycles test methods and requirements which apply to compression through connectors, insulation piercing connectors and all other type of connections for low voltage aerial bundled cables. NOTE This European Standard does not invalidate existing approvals of products achieved on the basis of national standards and specifications and/or the demonstration of satisfactory service performance. However, products approved according to such national standards or specifications cannot directly claim approval to this European Standard. It may be possible, subject to agreement between supplier and purchaser, and/or the relevant conformity assessment body, to demonstrate that conformity to the earlier standard can be used to claim conformity to this standard, provided an assessment is made of any additional type testing that may need to be carried out. Any such additional testing that is part of a sequence of testing cannot be done separately
