IEC 60331-1:2018

To better simulate kec real fire conditions, with mechanical stresses due to the fall of materials and with the presence of water, the testing conditions have been modified by changing the duration, increasing the temperature of the flame and by adding mechanical stresses and water spray.

IEC ed 1.

During the test, to the wire cores of cable a voltage of the nominal value is applied for telecommunication cables equal to Vthereby creating a closed electric circuit.


IEC details a method to assess the circuit eic of optical fiber cables. Procedures and requirements — Electric Data Cables.

Related publications IEC The optical power meter oec zeroed and the changes in attenuation during the minutes burner application period are monitored. The test sample provides cable fragment length at least mm.

Result of the test is considered positive if at that time will not be considered a short circuit in the circuit being researched.

603311-1 second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in Result of the test is considered positive if at that time will not e considered a short circuit in the circuit being tested.

It constitutes a technical revision.

The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: Our prices are in Swiss francs CHF. We accept all major credit cards American Express, Mastercard and VisaPayPal and bank transfers as form of payment. Requirements are stated for an identification that may optionally be marked on the cable to signify compliance with this document.

Result of the test is considered positive if at that time will not be considered a short circuit in the circuit being tested. Bent wire on the U-shaped with a adius equal to the smallest permissible by the manufacturer, is mounted on a metal assay ladder. It is intended for use when testing cables of greater than 20 mm overall diameter.


The following test report forms are related: Procedures and requirements — Cables of rated voltage up to and including 0. Cables of smaller diameter are intended to be tested using the apparatus, procedure and requirements of IEC lec In the 15 minutes period after the flame application, a maximum attenuation is also recorded.

The maximum change in attenuation a change from zero is recorded during the burner application period.

Fire Resisting Characteristics of Electrical Cables Apparatus

Circuit insulation Integrity in accordance with IEC IEC specifies tests for electric cable for circuit integrity under fire conditions. Annex A provides the method of verification of the burner and control system used for the test.

During the study, through all the cable wires is passed current with rated voltage and these cables are subjected to fire during min, where fire source is a gas burner set in conformity with standards, as well the echanical shock of the 5 minutes interval. The time of the fire is minutes. Tests for electric cables for fire conditions and shock- Circuit integrity.

It is divided in following parts that describe the test modes, the conditions, and the equipment to use.
