This European Standard covers the construction, requirements and particular test methods for flat, flexible PVC insulated and PVC sheathed cables, of rated voltage Uo/U 300/500 V, for use in passenger and goods lifts (elevators), and Uo/U 450/750 V for general purposes and for special applications such as hoists and travelling cranes. Cables of composite construction (for instance, cables with cores of different sizes) are not specified, but conditions are given for the inclusion of telecommunication units into the cables. NOTE 1 This revision is in accordance with an agreement with CEN TC 10 to specify in the same standard a) flexible cables for lifts as required by EN 81, and b) flexible cable for applications such as hoists and travelling cranes, previously found in HD 359. In accordance with this agreement only those cables in Clauses 5 and 6 are suitable for use with EN 81. NOTE 2 The limits for the overall diameter of the cables have been calculated in accordance with EN 60719.
