EN 50483 series applies to overhead line fittings for tensioning, supporting and connecting aerial bundled cables (ABC) of rated voltage U0/U (Um): 0,6/1 (1,2) kV. The objective is to provide a method of testing the suitability of accessories when used under normal operating conditions with low voltage aerial bundled cables complying with HD 626. This Part 6 defines the environmental tests in particular the climatic and corrosion ageing tests. The objective of these tests is to predict the behaviour of ABC accessories when subjected to sun radiation, to weather conditions (humidity, spraying water, heat, cold) and pollution.
