Worldwide unique progressive methods of testing electrical cables for the needs of conformity assessment and verification of the constancy of their parameters as construction productsSupervisor: doc. Ing. Jozef Martinka, PhD.
This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.
|Project description:||For most electrical cables within the meaning of Annex V to the Directive of European Parliament and the Council no. 305/2011 on the assessment and verification of constancy of parameters is used system 1+. On 01/07/2017, ends the transitional period and the assessment and verification of constancy of parameters of most electrical cables in the European Union will be carried out only in accordance with EN 50575: 2014. For manufacturers, this will mean the obligation of performing tests of power, control and communication cables for general use in accredited testing laboratories at yearly intervals. Costs for annual testing for one type of cable are in the order of thousands of euros. At a range of several hundred kinds of cables - power, control and communication cables of different diameters, different rated voltage and current load will this obligation mean a heavy financial burden on the production of cables. In the Slovak Republic, production and distribution of electrical cables directly and indirectly employs thousands of workers and represents a significant contribution to GDP. Despite this fact exhibit Slovak cable manufacturer in comparison to the other producers in Europe, but also US and China, low volume of production. For that reason, the costs on annual tests will more significantly share in the price of products. These may significantly jeopardize the competitiveness of Slovak producers in the European Union markets. Even producers in the European Union have in comparison with producers from the US and China low volume of production. Consequences of that fact, and their costs significantly reflected in the price of the product will also threatens their competitiveness. The solution is to develop new innovative tests that will maintain current safety requirements and substantially reduce the cost of testing. The project aims to develop tests satisfying the above conditions.|
