Coaxial communication cables - Part 1-212: Environmental test methods - UV stability


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 61196-1-212:2021 describes three methods to determine the UV resistance of sheath materials for electric and optical fibre cables. These tests apply for outdoor and indoor cable applications according to the product standard. The samples of sheath are taken from the finished cables. Although this test method is written principally for communication cables, it can be used for energy cables if called up by the relevant product standard.
