BS 6004:2012 pdf download.Electric cables – PVC insulated and PVC sheathed cables for voltages up to and including 300/500 V, for electric power and lighting.
BS 6004 specifies requirements and test methods for the construction and performance of cables that:
a) have a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) insulation of rated voltage 300/500 V; b) are intended for electric power and lighting.
The types of cable included in this British Standard are:
• PVC insulated, PVC sheathed cable 300/500 V, single-core 6181Y, flat-twin 6192Y and 3-core 6193Y (see Table 3);
• PVC insulated, PVC sheathed cable with circuit protective conductor, 300/500 V, single-core 6241Y, flat-twin 6242Y and 3-core 6243Y (see Table 4);
• PVC insulated, PVC sheathed cable with or without circuit protective conductor, 300/500 V, single-core 6192Y, 6241Y and flat-twin 6242Y (alternative conductor versions) (see Table 5);
• ordinary duty low temperature PVC insulated, PVC sheathed flexible cable, 300/500 V, flat-twin 3192A, circular-twin 3182A, 3-core 3183A, 4-core 3184A and 5-core 3185A (see Table 6).
The insulation and other components are suitable to permit operation of the cables at a maximum sustained conductor temperature of 70 °C and for a maximum short-circuit conductor temperature of 160 °C (for a maximum period of 5 s).
NOTE 1 Limitation on the temperature of the cables may be imposed in situations where they could be touched or where they could touch other materials. NOTE 2 In installations that include wiring accessories, junction boxes and consumer units etc., the performance of these accessories should be taken into account in deciding the maximum operating temperature of the cable.
NOTE 3 Annex A provides a guide to the cross-referencing of the traditional United Kingdom Cable Codes (formerly known as the CMA codes) and harmonized CENELEC codes. Furthermore, Annex B gives information on the traditional UK cables transferred to BS EN 50525.
NOTE 4 Annex C gives guidance on the use of the cables specified in this British Standard.
NOTE 5 Annex 0 gives the compatibility test method.
NOTE 6 Annex E gives the voltage withstand test.
NOTE 7 Annex F gives notes on type tests.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this British Standard, the terms and definitions given in IEC 60050-461 and the following apply.
3.1 cable manufacturer
organization that has the capability to both produce and control the conformity of cable made to this British Standard
NOTE See 11. la) for information on marking the cable with the cable manufacturer’s name and identifier.
3.2 length of lay
axial length of one complete turn of the helix formed by one cable component
3.3 nominal value
value by which a quantity is designated
NOTE Nominal values usually give rise to values to be checked by measurement taking into account specified tolerances.
3.4 routine tests, R
tests made on all production lengths of cable to demonstrate their integrity
3.5 sample tests. S
tests made on samples of completed cable, or components taken from a completed cable, adequate to verify that the finished product meets the design specifications
3.6 type tests, T
tests made before supplying, on a general commercial basis, a type of cable covered by this British Standard, in order to demonstrate satisfactory performance characteristics to meet the intended application
NOTE These tests are of such a nature that, after they have been made, they need not be repeated unless changes are made in the cable materials, design or type of manufacturing process, which might change the performance characteristics.BS 6004 pdf free download.
