Cables come in a wide variety of types and sizes and can be made from many different materials.
Selecting the right cable is important for the safety of an installation and to provide an efficient and effective electrical or communications system.
Cable management systems (CMS) are a series of components and systems used to support, protect and route cables from their source to where the power or information is needed, safely and securely.
This is a comprehensive guide to the different types of cables used in electrical and telecommunications installations.
In addition, it provides information on CMS and on the good cable installation practice that ensures sale electrical installations.
It should be noted that this is not a design guide. Where applicable, guidance has been given on certain design aspects, but reference should always be made to BS 767112018 Requirements for Electrical Installations (IET Wiring Regulations, 18th Edition) for definitive design requirements.
BS 7671 is a joint publication of the British Standards institution (BSI) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). This guide is one of several publications prepared by the IET to provide guidance on certain aspects in relation to BS 767132018 Electrical installations in the United Kingdom must comply with relevant statutory regulations, such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EAWR), the Building Regulations and, where re f evant, the Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations 2002 (ESQCR).
This guide provides an overview of the complex regulatory provisions in this area, including, but not exclusively:
(a) the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974,
(b) the EAWR;
(c) the Building Regulations,
(d) the ESOCR;
(e) the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical Equipment Regulations (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Regulations - RoHS),
(f) the Construction Products Regulations (CPR),
(g) the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (WEEE),
(h) the Low Voltage Directive (LVD).
The changes brought about by the UK's decision to leave the EU and the accompanying legislation may result in some of the EU legislation quoted in this guide being superseded by subsequent UK legislation.
It is anticipated that the legislation as it stands will remain in force, but reference to HM Government websites is recommended when referring to the legislation quoted.
This IET Guide provides a solid grounding on the breadth of cables and cable management systems, covering both electrical supply, communications and control technologies, for traditional and special applications. The Guide is commended to those training to make specification decisions, and as a refresher to those wishing to keep up with current developments.
