BS EN 50395:2005+A1:2011

Electrical test methods for low voltage energy cables

Status : Current   Published : November 2005



BS EN 50395:2005 contains the electrical test methods required for the testing of harmonized low voltage energy cables, especially those rated at up to and including 450/750 V. These electrical test methods include all those previously contained in HD 21 and HD 22.

The particular cable standard dictates the tests which need to be performed on the relevant cable type. It also specifies whether the specific test is a type test (T), a sample test (S) or a routine test (R) for the particular cable type.

The origin of the test methods and the background to the standard is also included in the document.
