  • 3. Importance of the type and position of the couplers To optimise the performance of the cable tray, the choice of couplers is as important as that of their positioning in the span. CABLOFIL® couplers are designed and tested for high mechanical and electrical performance. It is important to follow these recommendations to take full benefit from this optimum performance: The primary function of CABLOFIL® is to be an efficient and universal cable support. The mechanical performance of all products and accessories is tested to the stringent requirements of the international standard IEC 61537. Mechanical resistance General case valid for all spans L/2 Optimum Possible Prohibited (100% performance) Placing the splice at 1/5th of the span is the best solution. (70% performance) the coefficient to be applied on the permissible load if splicing at L/2 is 0.7. Never put the support under the splice. Special case : The CABLOFIL® 2-metre span (P2000) Cable tray L : 3 metres Splice 0.5m Beginning 2m 2nd support 0.5m 2m 3rd support The permissible load is indicated in our catalogues. It corresponds to the guaranteed load that can be supported by CABLOFIL ®. Since the load is distributed uniformly, it is expressed in DaN/m. For a span of 2 metres therefore, whereas the standard requires a deflection of 20 mm, CABLOFIL® deliberately limits it to 10 mm. Cable tray L : 3 metres Splices 1,5 m CF54 PG, EZ, GC The standard imposes a deflection of 1/100th of the span. CABLOFIL ®, being more demanding, has reduced this figure to 1/200th. There is an optimum configuration to obtain 2-metre spans without the couplers being positioned at the supports or in the middle of the spans. Cable tray L : 3 metres Permissible load 4th support 2m 5th support 6th support To obtain this result, the first span is deliberately limited to 1.5 metres, then the supports are placed every 2 metres. The couplers are therefore always 0.5 m from a support which is close to the optimium performance of 0.4 m. CF 54/50 à 100 120,0 CF 54/150 CF 54/200 100,0 CF 54/300 CF 54/400 à 500 80,0 CF 54/600 60,0 40,0 20,0 0,0 1500 1600 1700 1800 1900 2000 2100 2200 2300 2400 2500 span (mm) Permissible load for maximum deflection = L/200 on the intermediate span, splicing at 1/5th of the span. Load test : test configuration according to standard IEC 61537 0.5m 2m 140,0 load (kg/m) L/5 This configuration, coupled with the quality and penetration of the welding of the wires, guarantees a span of 2 metres for the leading range of CABLOFIL® (CF 54 of 50 mm to 500 mm wide). Each CABLOFIL ® reference has been tested in the required configuration. The resultant deflection is measured in the middle of the span with a splice at 1/5th of the span. The Safe Working Load (SWL) is then the smallest value of either: th q The load creating a deflection equal to 1/200 of the span. th q The breaking load divided by 1.7 if the deflection at 1/200 is not reached. Splicing L/5 0.4 L L = span L L Choice and position of supports Change of level and direction : The support must be placed within 1/5th span of the cable tray fittings. It is recommanded to place supports at the start and end of 90° bends. For bends of large radius, plan an extra support in the middle of the fitting. L L/20 max L L/20 The brackets are characterised by their permissible loads (in DaN). The hangers are characterised by their permissible torques (in DaN.m). All CABLOFIL® supports are tested and conform with the standard IEC 61537. The Safe Working Load (SWL) as defined by the standard is the lowest value of either : q The load creating a deflection of L/20 at the end. q The breaking load divided by 1.7, if the deflection at L/20 is not reached. max Safety In the event of critical overload, a mesh structure becomes deformed like a hammock. 4 ® Warning!

  • 4. Cable trays are mainly exposed to atmospheric corrosion. The environment in which the cable trays are installed is therefore the main criterion in the choice of surface treatment or the type of steel. Uncontrolled corrosion is a recurrent problem with all applications involving metals, it may lead to a reduction in the performance and lifetime of the installation. Aggressive environment: stainless steel In highly aggressive environments, rather than changing the type of surface treatment, a different type of steel is used. CABLOFIL® has selected 2 austenitic steel, 304 L and 316 L, for their excellent corrosion resistance. This is primarily due to their very low carbon content (“L” for “Low carbon”). 304L Stainless steel 304 L 304 L has good corrosion resistance against fresh water, natural atmospheres, food industry (except mustard and white wine). 316L EN 10088-2 – AISI 316L – X2CrNiMo17.12.2 316 L Stainless steel contains molybdenum and so offers almost perfect corrosion resistance in all types of environments, particularly chemical and food industries, nitrate explosive industries, photography laboratories and halogenic environments.

  • 5. EMC Tests Carried out in independent and accredited laboratories, AEMC Mesures and CETIM, these tests demonstrate the performance of CABLOFIL® in regard to the EMC of the electrical installation. 2nd test configuration 1st test configuration Data cable subjected to an external electromagnetic field A UTP category 5e cable, placed in an insulated chamber, is subjected to a severe electromagnetic field, simulating electromagnetic disturbance. Each different type of metal cable tray, connected to earth, is tested: Cable without metal cable tray: control Cable in CABLOFIL® Cable in perforated tray Understanding EMC involves the analysis of electromagnetic pollution between a source of disturbance and its victim Cable in CABLOFIL® + cover Data cable alongside a power cable A UTP category 6 cable, placed in an insulated chamber, is subjected to an electromagnetic field created by a power cable. The following parameters are studied: • Impact of earthing • Separation distance : 0, 10, 20, 30 cm • Type of containment: wire mesh, perforated tray and trunking • Separated cable trays • One cable tray with divider and without divider 118 configurations were tested An electromagnetic disturbance was creating by passing a current in the power cable The disturbance created in the data cable Cable in trunking Phenomenon Electromagnetic disturbance is emitted by a source polluting a victim. The transmission of electromagnetic disturbance is known as coupling. An EMC problem only occurs when the three elements source, coupling and victim are evident. To obtain good EMC we simply need to eliminate one of the three elements or reduce its effect.. A metallic cable tray has excellent electrical continuity and is part of the equipotential earth network of the installation, it will reduce the impact of the coupling thereby participating in good EMC of the electrical installation. was measured In practice, the electrical system must be installed according to industry standards, however: Comparison of 3 of 118 configurations Electromagnetic compatibility Source Coupling Victim Examples of sources : frequency modulators, mobile telephones, lightning, power cables, etc. Example of victims : computer hardware, devices, DATA cables, etc. The golden rules ! Separate the power and DATA cables (20 cm separation) Cables of different families should cross each other at right angles EN 50174-2 Results and interpretations Results and interpretations The comparison of the results of each configuration of cable tray, wire mesh and perforated tray, with and without cover, shows the EMC performance of cable tray. These tests show that there is no significant difference in the "Faraday cage“ effect offered by wire mesh or perforated cable tray. These results show that it is vital: § To use metal cable tray § To earth the cable tray § To use a cover if required This 2nd test configuration confirms the attenuation effect of a metallic cable tray irrespective of its design (wire mesh or perforated tray). To obtain a good EMC, these results shows that it is vital: § To use metal cable tray § To earth the cable tray These tests show the importance of the following criteria: § To ensure maximum separation distances § To use two separate cable trays for power and data § To use a divider if sharing containment systems Provide electrical continuity: Metallic cable tray and low resistances couplers The CABLOFIL® solution q ! Non metallic cable tray (PVC, composite material) has no effect against electromagnetic disturbances ! Never mix power cables and data cables in a trunking system Connect the cable trays to the earth network (every 15 to 20 m) q q Its open structure makes it easy to ensure correct cable separation by visual inspection. Its easy installation and metal structure guarantee excellent electrical continuity in all cases: couplings, bends, level changes, crossing walls, etc. Its open structure can reduce crosstalk. Conclusion EXCELLENT Optimal EMC performances Visual inspection of cables position 8 ® POSSIBLE Performances equivalent to wire mesh cable tray, but limited visual monitoring WARNING When the CABLOFIL® “steel wire” cable tray is integrated in the earth or building network, it helps to contribute enhanced EMC in an electrical installation.

  • 6. Earth network The earthing of an installation is vital and necessary for the safety of people and property. In addition it plays an active role in EMC. (1) (1) also called "grounding" Fundamental to providing safety to people and property, electrical continuity also plays a role in the EMC performance of an electrical installation. Protective conductor Definition The earth network consists of all metal parts of a building connected together: beams, conduits, cable trays, metal frames or devices, all parts which must be connected together to guarantee the equipotentiality of the earth network. Earth Earth Conductor Earth Spike Advantages of an equipotential earth network The equipotential earth network works like a system of conduits evacuating any fault currents and the parasite currents to earth. This provides a means of : q Protecting people and property. q Obtaining a satisfactory EMC performance level. CABLOFIL® integrated in the earth network In order to benefit from the safety and EMC advantages, CABLOFIL® should be bonded to the earth of the installation every 15 to 20 metres. If the length is less than 15 to 20 metres, CABLOFIL® must be connected to the earth at each end. To correctly evacuate any fault and noise currents, the electrical circuit formed by the cable tray must be closed. Definition The electrical continuity of a system is its ability to conduct an electric current. Each system is characterised by its resistance R. If R = 0 Ω : the system is a perfect conductor If R is infinite : the system is a perfect insulator The lower the resistance of a system, the better its electrical continuity. The advantage of having excellent electrical continuity Even at the same electrical potential each part of the cable tray helps dissipate any fault currents and therefore : Guarantees the safety of people and property : by avoiding any risk of electrocution. No couplers = DANGER Couplers = SAFETY Role of the protective conductor : the protective conductor is a simple and efficient means of connecting the cable tray to earth. Suitable accessories Electrical continuity Electrical continuity tested CABLOFIL® Under test, the CABLOFIL® wires exceed the requirements of standard IEC 61537 which impose a maximum resistance for the cable tray of 5 mΩ /m. CABLOFIL® couplers Under the requirements of standard IEC 61537, the couplers must have a maximum resistance of 50 mΩ . The test consist of passing an electric current in the system (cable tray + couplers) and of measuring the resistance of the coupler Test Configuration The installer must first determine the cross-section of the protective conductor. The CABLOFIL® range includes a wide range of suitable accessories : Promotes good EMC within an installation : <1mΩ Electromagnetic disturbance The metal structure of the cable tray absorbs some of the electromagnetic disturbance and converts it into noise current. GRIFEQUIP : aluminium connector representing an easy, low-cost earthing solution for a protective conductor of cross-section from 6 mm 2 to 35 mm 2. Bi-metal terminal : bi-metal connector for safe, durable earthing for protective conductors Test results 0,82m Ω on average for the CABLOFIL® couplers , i.e. 50 to 80 times better than the requirement given in the standard. of 16 mm 2, 35 mm 2 and 50 mm 2. All CABLOFIL® couplers are tested and compliant. Terminal support + bi-metal terminal : for earthing to suit the most demanding specifications. 10 ® Warning! All cable trays are not the same. The mechanical and electrical characteristics, the tests, certifications, Total Quality Organisation and recommendations underlined in this technical guide refer to Cablofil only and do not under any circumstance represent other similar products or imitations ! The full results of these tests are available upon request from our technical department. Epoxy coated trays do not conduct electric currents. Warning! All cable trays are not the same.

  • 7. Ventilation of cables By improving the heat dissipation of power cables, substantial savings can be made on the installation and operation costs. The open structure of CABLOFIL® maximises ventilation. The installation of power cabling systems relies on high-quality cable supports. CABLOFIL® takes this further, by offering a strong, fast, safe, clean and ventilated system. Power cables The problem The performance level of the cable depends on its electrical resistance. This is proportional to the resistivity, which is in turn proportional to the temperature. When the temperature rises, the cable resistance increases and the cable performance drops. (Ω.m) 0.280 0.275 0.270 0.265 When electric current flows through the cable, the temperature of the central copper or aluminium conductor increases up to an operating temperature of about 70°C to 80°C. 0.260 0.255 0.250 0.245 0.240 0.235 60 50 70 80 90 100 The resistivity of copper varies with temperature Heat given off by the cable due to the Joule effect poses no problem in free air. In a confined space, however, such as inside a closed cable tray or trunking, the cable will heat up and its performance will drop therefore less current will be carried. Studies have shown that excessive cable temperature wastes considerable energy. There are two possible solutions An high cost solution would be to increase the cable cross-sections An low cost solution is to ventilate the system by installing the cables in CABLOFIL® CABLOFIL® is in fact the nearest thing to a cable in free air as it represents only 10% solid surface area, and in many cases is considered as such by the IEC 60 364 standard. Using an unventilated, or only slightly ventilated installation method, some configurations (several power cables running in the cable tray) require the use of cables of cross-section 1.5 to 2 times larger than with CABLOFIL®. A technical and financial advantage The performance levels of cables supported by CABLOFIL® are therefore optimised, resulting in significant cost-savings : q Optimisation of the cross-section and therefore the cost of the cable. q Reduction of the installation time and therefore the cost of labour q Reduction of the heating effect and therefore the energy consumption. The CABLOFIL® solution Numerous references Mechanical performance CABLOFIL® was subjected to a series of mechanical tests. Each reference is able to support power cables. The load tables shown in the catalogues can be used to select the most suitable reference. Armoured, singles or twin& earth cables are the ones used most frequently in an electrical installation. They carry the power required to run electrical installations. The choice of a power cable is based mainly on two criteria : q Flexibility All CABLOFIL® fittings including bends, tees, risers and sets are created to suit the installation on site whilst maintaining the bend radius of the cables. Maintenance Mechanical performance: tension, fire, rating temperature performance, chemical resistance, shock and vibration resistance, etc. q Electrical performance : AC or DC, very low, low, medium, high or very high voltage, singlephase or three-phase, etc. Solutions for all applications encountered in the electrical world can be found by combining these characteristics. There are numerous cable references. Its open structure makes it easy to inspect the cable installation which simplifies any maintenance work that may be required. Safety In some installations it may be necessary to improve the protection of the safety of people and/or property. A sufficiently large protection conductor may be used. CABLOFIL® includes suitable accessories (see Earth network). Cleanliness Retention of dust, ingression of bacteria and any debris obstructing the cable path are greatly reduced due to the open mesh construction of CABLOFIL®. The energy savings gained by using Cablofil help to reduce the greenhouse effect. 12 ® Warning! All cable trays are not the same.

  • 8. Reliability and durability The two major considerations are the reliability and durability of the installation. A series of independent tests were carried out in order to measure the positive contribution of CABLOFIL®, when overloaded with cables. Independent tests Measurements CABLOFIL® had its cable trays tested by the Intertek Testing Services laboratory, a division of ETL, the world leader in test, inspection and certification services. For the following two tests, the characteristic parameters of the cables (NEXT, FEXT, Attenuation, Return Loss, etc.) are measured in various configurations. Objectives : to obtain a detailed understanding of the positive short- or long-term effects of using CABLOFIL® for Cat 5e and Cat 6 cables compared with a traditional flat-bottomed support. The main parameter chosen to make the comparisons was the Return Loss: the impedance regularity of the cable is determined. Each irregularity results in the return of the signal towards its source. ANSI/TIA/EIA 568 & 569 “Data Network Cabling Standards“ The ANSI/TIA/EIA 568 standard covers the planning and the installation of a network, in particular including the level of performance and the parameters. The ANSI/TIA/EIA 569 standard deals with electrical installation rules and more particularly of the pathway. Test of reliability under load : test configuration Results : The tests show that for a Category 5e or Category 6 cable subjected to a load of 40 cables lying on it, no significant difference in performance is noted between the cable on CABLOFIL® cable tray and a cable on a smooth flat support. The development of communications cable technology is rapidly changing and the use of high-speed networks is growing exponentially. CABLOFIL® has become accepted as the ideal support for copper communication cables (coaxial cables and twisted pairs). 90 metres of Cat 5e and Cat 6 cables were tested without load, then subjected to mechanical stress equal to a weight of 40 stacked cables. By comparing these measurements the effect of the support can be determined. CABLOFIL® not loaded CABLOFIL® under load New standards for new performance Category Cat 3 Cat 4 Cat 5 Cat 6 Cat 7 Frequency 16 MHz 20 MHz 100 MHz 250 MHz 600 MHz A category characterises the performance level of a component alone: a cable, a connector or a lead. For example, a cable will be stamped "cat. 6" if it passes the tests required for category 6 approval. Class A B C D E F Frequency 100 kHz 1 MHz 16 MHz 100 MHz 250 MHz 600 MHz A class characterises the performance level of a link formed from several components (for example, cable + connector). The class is therefore not used to characterise a component but to define the performance level of an installation. When compiling specifications, the desired application class should be indicated, as well as the category of components to be installed. Coaxial cable Flat surface not loaded Flat surface under load Low-cost and easy to handle, screened coaxial cables are used in computer applications, in industry and instrumentation to transmit fast digital signals at low level. Copper communications cable Twisted pair This type of cable is most widespread in telephony and computer applications in local area networks. The pairs, consisting of 2 copper wires twisted together, are insulated from each other by plastic and enclosed in a sheath. UTP Unshielded Twisted Pair : unshielded twisted pairs in an unscreened sheath. The most widespread throughout the world and the cheapest. FTP Foiled Twisted Pair : twisted pairs in a screened sheath. Mostly used in France. S/FTP or S-STP Screened Shielded Twisted Pair : shielded twisted pairs in a screened sheath. Mainly used in Germany. Protective sheath Test of durability under load To find the variation over time of an installation of data cables, the same tests are carried out with a 15-year ageing simulation, based on extremely stringent military standards: the cables and their support are subjected to 200 cycles of large temperature variations (-40 °C to +85 °C) over a 2-week period. Results : A cable lying in CABLOFIL®, an open and ventilated system, performs better than a flat-bottomed and closed system in which the heat is unable to dissipate. Metal braid Dielectric Copper core To provide efficient protection against electromagnetic disturbance, the screening of FTP and SFTP cables must be connected to earth at both ends. Important ! To guarantee the performance of the system the cables must be installed carefully and conform to the standard in terms of bend radius, puling forces and bundle dimensions. The detailed results are available upon request from our technical department 14 ® Warning! All cable trays are not the same.

  • 9. Advantages q q q q q q q The most reliable and secure transmission mode Very high data transmission speed, up to 1 Gb/s Low signal attenuation: transport over long distances Immunity against electromagnetic disturbance No electromagnetic radiation Discrete, 100% secure link Corrosion resistance A solid structure The development of fibre optics stems directly from the increasing demand in fast data transmission between the various terminals. Its immunity to electromagnetic disturbance and its signal transmission characteristics make it the ideal support for high-speed data transmission. Fibre optical cables are incorrectly considered as being fragile, even though before they are put into use they undergo severe tests defined in the various standards, for example French standards NFC 93 850. Traction tests These involve an optical cable 100 metres long, successively subjected to 3 stretching levels for 10 minutes : To = 220 DaN; Tn = 300 DaN; Tm = 350 DaN A stretching level is characterised by a force T applied to the end of the optical cable. T Force T exerted on the optical cable The tests are conclusive when the following 3 criteria are met : a. No variation of the transmission factor after the 3 stretches. b. Zero resultant extension* for To. c. Resultant extension* for Tm < 15 cm (i.e. < 0.15% of the total length). *The resultant elongation corresponds to the elongation observed after the forces have been applied on the optical cable. Crushing tests F = 30 DaN/cm 5m Crushing force F The fibre undergoes a force of 30 DaN/cm at 5 metres from the end of the cable for 5 minutes. The test is successful if : a. There are no perforations, cracks or breaks in the sheath visible to the naked eye. b The variation in transmission factor which characterises the optical fibre must be zero (to within 0.1 dB). Curvature tests These tests are carried out on a mandrel * of diameter 30 cm. No cracks or folds must be observed after the tests. * cylinder around which the cables are wound Optical fibre wound around a mandrel Fibre optic cable Definition The optical fibre is a very thin glass cable transmitting light signals on which digital data is carried. The transmission factor of an optical fibre, given in decibels (dB), defines the data transmission quality. Protective covering Composition of a fibre optic cable The light waves travel along the optical core which is made from silica, melted quartz or plastic. The core diameter ranges from 50 to 200 microns. The optical cladding traps the light waves inside the core: the light ray travels along by successive reflections on the walls formed by the optical cladding. optical core Primary Cladding Optical cladding The protective covering, generally a layer of plastic 25 to 1000 microns thick, gives the fibre excellent mechanical properties. Dimensions of fibre optic cables Light signal The dimension of an optical fibre refers to the diameters of the core and the optical cladding. The most common dimensions are 9/125, 50/125, 62.5/125 and 100/140 microns. Types of optical fibre The CABLOFIL® solution Monomode optical fibre Just like copper cables, optical fibre cables must conform with professional installation standards. CABLOFIL® offers 3 major advantages : q The rounded shape of the wire and a smooth safe edge. q A range of customised accessories (CABLEXIT, CABLOGRIP…). q Open mesh ensuring easy maintenance and checks of the installation quality. Multimode, step-index optical fibre The light travels along the very thin core almost in a straight line. This type of fibre is widely used for telecom applications, links over long distances (several km) and in backbones. The core is comparatively wider than the cladding. This type of fibre is very efficient over short distances, but rarely used. Multimode, graded-index optical fibre The core and the cladding form successive layers of glass. It is very frequently used for medium distances, local area networks and the main routings in buildings. 16 ® Warning! All cable trays are not the same.

  • 10. In many cases the fire performance of an electrical system is the primary consideration. Understanding how components react when exposed to fire is essential. CABLOFIL® has been successfully tested and proven to meet all fire-safety requirements. CABLOFIL® is the first manufacturer of cable tray to be certified E 30-E 90 according to DIN 4102-12: 1998-11. Configurations tested CABLOFIL®, the cable tray that conforms to E 30-E 90 The surprising appearance of the cable tray after the test is quite normal. The mechanical properties of the cables and cable tray are impaired but they achieved their objective : to ensure the durability of the installation for a given period. Standard DIN 4102-12 The German standard serves as a reference. To date, there are no direct European standards on fire resistance specifically for cable trays. However, the fire performance of the "cable system" is becoming increasingly important, this would therefore include the cable support system, as in the standard BSEN5839-1:2002 Fire resistance The German standard DIN 4102-12 specifies that the complete system of cable trays, accessories and cables must be tested in an oven measuring at least 3m long, for a period of 30, 60 or 90 minutes up to a temperature of 1000°C. The aim of the test is to validate the correct operation of the electrical system and to ensure that the critical services (emergency lighting, fans, emergency exit, fire alarm, etc.) remain functional for long enough to organise rescue in the event of fire. A recognised, independent laboratory Duration Standard > 30 min > 60 min > 90 min E 30 E 60 E 90 The IBMB (Institut für Baustoffe, Massivbau & Brandschutz) laboratory is certified to perform the tests and issue the corresponding certificates. It ensures that the test conditions described in standard 4102-12 are adhered to. IBMB oven Test configuration The standard CABLOFIL® range has passed the test. 1000C C The configuration used by CABLOFIL is a cable tray of span 1250 mm. The maximum permissible load is 10 kg/m. ® The temperature rise takes place according to the temperature curve (ETK) defined by DIN 4102-12. The E90 test does not qualify a cable tray specifically but it associates CABLOFIL® with a particular model and manufacturer of cable. Several types of cable have already been successfully tested: Eupen, Dätwyler and Alcatel. The cables are tested in pairs. 1000 900 800 700 600 500 400 300 200 100 0 mn 930 C 830 C 30 mn 60 mn 90 mn EZ Path - the firestop solution from CABLOFIL® q q ® Warning!

  • 11. The Standards : The IEC standard 61537: "cable tray systems and cable ladder systems for electrical installations" defines the characteristics of the cable tray product. The marking The standard IEC 61537 is the "product" standard defining the requirements and test methods for the cable tray and cable ladder systems. Being the only standard harmonised at European level, it is the reference when marking CE on the products, as requested in the LVD. All CABLOFIL® cable trays and accessories now comply with the European standards. The products are therefore marked with the CE logo. The manufacture and use of cable tray is subject to strict and precise regulations. CABLOFIL® gives an update on the applicable texts and guarantees conformance of its products. The standard IEC 61537 This standard defines the configurations of the mechanical tests to be carried out on the cable tray, brackets, hangers and other accessories. It also specifies the requirements and methodologies for the electrical continuity tests that the cable trays and splices must meet. The directives The following directives apply directly to the cable tray : q The Low Voltage Directive 73/23/CEE known as "LVD" q Directive 93/68/CEE known as "CE Marking" The “LVD” directive All mechanical and electrical performance levels of the CABLOFIL® range are tested according to the methods described in this standard. The low voltage directive (LVD) 73/23/CEE harmonises the legislation of member states and covers consumer and capital goods intended for use within the following voltage limits : q 50 to 1000 Volts AC. q 75 to 1500 Volts DC. Standards and directives Difference between a directive and a standard A directive defines the requirements related to the effects of the products on property and persons, but it does not explain in direct terms how to comply: this is the function of standards. The “CE Marking” directive Directive 93/68/CEE, known as the "CE Marking" Directive, modifies the Low Voltage Directive for issues concerning the conformance evaluation and marking procedures. Special case of the EMC directive 89/336/CEE The EMC Directive 89/336/CEE applies exclusively to the active elements (is carrying a current or to which a voltage is applied). Since, by definition, the cable tray is a passive element, this directive is therefore not applicable. Correctly connected to the earth network, however, the metal cable tray plays a positive role in the correct EMC of the installation. 20 ® Warning! All cable trays are not the same.
