This European Standard applies to single core, crosslinked elastomer covered arc welding cables. The cables are of rated voltage U0/U 100/100 V. The cables are intended for connections between the welding power source and the electrode holder and the work piece. Two types of cable are included, with respectively Class D and Class E conductors. These conductors are more flexible than Class 6 to EN 60228, with Class E having the greater flexibility. The maximum conductor operating temperature for each of the cables in this standard is 85 °C.
