BS 6724:2016 pdf free.Electric cables – Thermosetting insulated, armoured cables of rated voltages of 600/1 000 V and 1 900/3 300 V for fixed installations, having low emission of smoke and corrosive gases when affected by fire – Specification.
This British Standard is applicable to cables that are designed for a maximum sustained conductor temperature of 90 °C and for a maximum short-circuit conductor temperature of 250 °C (for a maximum of 5 s).
NOTE 2 Limitation on the temperature of the cables may be imposed in situations where they might be touched or where they could touch other materials.
NOTE 3 Annex A gives a guide to the use and installation of cables, Annex B gives armour wire tests, Annex C gives a compatibility test, Annex D gives an abrasion resistance test, Annex E gives an insulation resistance constant test on oversheath, Annex F gives the resistance of conductor and armour. Annex G gives the gross cross-sectional area of armour, Annex H gives a test for shrinkage of oversheath on cable, Annex I gives guidance on type tests and Annex J gives the standard United Kingdom reference codes.
