IEC 61084-2-4:2017 specifies requirements and tests for cable trunking systems (CTS) and cable ducting systems (CDS) intended for the accommodation, and where necessary for the electrically protective separation, of insulated conductors, cables and possibly other electrical equipment in electrical and/or communication systems installations. The maximum voltage of these installations is 1 000 V AC and 1 500 V DC.
Service poles and service posts are intended to be mounted in free space and in contact with mounting surface(s) only at one or two ends, where the word “mounted” means fixed or placed on the floor with a weighted base or linked to a mounting surface through a flexible component.
NOTE Service poles and service posts can also be part of a CTS/CDS intended for wall or ceiling mounting covered by IEC 61084-2-1 or floor mounting covered by IEC 61084-2-2 and are then also tested according to said parts, as appropriate.
This international standard does not apply to conduit systems, cable tray systems, cable ladder systems, powertrack systems or equipment covered by other standards.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1996. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- mechanical and electrical properties.
This International Standard is to be used in conjunction with IEC 61084-1:2017.
