the loads indicated below in kg/m, as a function of tray width.

The cable trays and all associated fittings shall be designed and constructed to withstand, without noticeable
deterioration, the seismic and environmental conditions indicated in Chapter 4 of the present document.

The Supplier shall indicate the maximum load that can be applied safely in normal use (safe working load or
SWL) to the cable trays supplied.

The Supplier shall also declare the classification of the cable tray system to be supplied according to the
maximum and minimum transport, storage, installation and application temperatures (in accordance with
Tables 2 and 3 of standard IEC 61537, Section 6.6), as well as the limitations, if any, regarding end span
length or regarding position of the couplings in the end spans or throughout the tray system.

Cable tray system components shall be fire-resistant, as well as non-flame and non-fire propagating, as per
Section 13 of standard IEC 61537.

Typical tray details are included in drawing BO1001-00BZP-ETC104-448220701 Typical Details of Cable
Trays.

seismic load defined in Section 4, taking into consideration the declared SWL acting on the centre of gravity
of the equipment from the most unfavourable direction.

The hot-dip galvanizing of all parts, fitting and accessories of galvanized steel trays shall be carried out after
mechanical shaping so that, once galvanized, the part will undergo no folding, bending, perforation, welding,
cutting, etc. that could damage the zinc coating and lead to non-galvanized areas being exposed to the
environment.

The galvanization process shall be carried out by hot dipping the parts in a melted zinc bath.

Zinc buildups or pimples shall not be acceptable.

The zinc coat layer shall be smooth, continuous and complete. It shall be free of imperfections, and shall not

The steel shapes that make the side rails and rungs, as well as all auxiliary parts of the tray, shall be built
without sharp edges so as to eliminate the risk of damaging cables during their installation.

All fittings such as bends, tees, crosses, reducers, auxiliary parts, etc. shall be made of steel sheeting of the
same grade as the cable trays, and have the same finish.

Fittings for the purpose of changing horizontal direction (flat bends, tees, etc) shall be radiused, the curvature
achieved by means of circumference arcs with a minimum radius of 330 mm. Vertical changes in direction may
feature either circumference arcs or polygonal arcs. The straight section of these coupling fittings shall have a
minimum length of 125 mm.

The inner and outer diameters as well as the wall thickness of the conduits that form part of the supply must
be per Standard DIN 2440 (EN 10255).

Installation shall be with non continuous conduit except for Classified Areas.

Steel conduits shall be used in Classified Areas in accordance with DIN 2440 (EN10255).

The units of straight sections shall be approximately 3 meters long.

Conduits shall be earthed at the distribution board by means of an earth clip and a direct connection to the
main earthing conductor.

The thickness of the conduit wall shall be the same throughout its length. The circular section of the conduits
shall be precise enough to allow the threading to be carried out appropriately.

The conduits shall be threaded at both ends with a NPT thread in accordance with DIN 2440 (EN10255).

The conduits must have bevelled edges at both ends in order to eliminate rough and sharp edges.

The outer and inner surfaces of the conduit must be completely and evenly coated with zinc, applied directly
to the surfaces. The content of zinc in the protective coating on both the inner and the outer surfaces shall be
equivalent to minimum thickness of 0.02 mm.

The threading shall be preferably done before the hot dipped galvanization.

Nevertheless, if the threading is done after the protective zinc coating is applied; a protective coating must be
applied to this area to prevent corrosion. This protective coat will not impede electrical continuity.

Before performing the finishing process, the outer and inner surfaces must be properly cleaned so that the
protective coat adheres correctly, and there are no rough or imperfect surfaces.

The inner surfaces of the conduits shall be completely smooth, free of rough edges or any other type of defect
that may damage the cable insulation.

The rigid conduits shall be cold bendable without this producing any cracking as per DIN2440 (EN 10255).

The flexible conduits shall be formed by flat-shaped, galvanised steel strips, and have a coating of EPR or
similar that is resistant to water, grease and oil and is flame-retardant as per IEC Standard 60332-1. The
protective coating shall be evenly applied to the outer surface of the conduit. Flexible conduits and fittings shall
be able to be coiled without damage or reduction in cross sectional area.

The ends of the conduits must be protected by means of suitable plastic parts or metal taps in order to avoid
the ingress of dust, humidity or other extraneous substances, as well as to protect the threading during storage,
transport and unloading of the parts.

The conduit couplings shall be steel cylinders, internally threaded and sized according to DIN2440 (EN 10255).

The thread length of the fittings must be such that the threads are not exposed when it is completely threaded
over the conduit.

Both ends of the fitting must be bevelled in order to eliminate any rough or sharp edges. Threads on the ends
shall be true and clean. Running threads shall not be used.

The fittings must be submitted to an anti-corrosive treatment, identical to the one indicated for conduits.

The elbows (when applicable) shall be made with conduits that have characteristics identical to those used for
the straight sections. All that indicated above for straight sections shall apply.

The elbows shall be sized in accordance with DIN2440 (EN 10255).

5.2.3 Connecting parts and accessories

The connecting parts shall be cast hot dipped galvanized and threaded over all their length. They shall be
constructed in such a way that once installed in the conduction they may be exposed to rain without water
ingress.

The connection between connecting parts and between the connecting parts and the conduits must not break
their electrical continuity.

The inner and outer surfaces of the steel connecting parts as well as the outer surfaces of the cast type
connecting parts must be completely and evenly protected by zinc coating, applied directly to the surfaces.

The surface finish of the steel outer connecting parts must have a minimum zinc or cadmium thickness of
0.013 mm, except for the outer threads, which will be 0.005 mm. The zinc coating of the inner surfaces shall
have a minimum thickness of 0.004 mm.

The outer surfaces of cast type connecting parts must have a 0.005 mm zinc coating.

The inner surfaces of the cast type connecting parts must have a visible zinc coating.

An organic protective coating offering a similar level of protection as the metal protective coating shall be
accepted in cases where zinc coating cannot be performed.

Both the inner tapered threading and the outer straight threading shall be carried out in accordance with
DIN2440 (EN 10255).

The conduit locknuts shall be grooved to facilitate tightening. The nipples must be corrugated to facilitate
tightening. The EPR protections or similar must be perfectly round and smooth in order to protect the conductor
insulation from abrasion.
