The following European standards and/or draft standards for this product segment have been published:
EN 1047-1:2005 "Data cabinets and diskette inserts"
European Standard EN 1047-1 contains definitions, requirements and technical testing criteria for data cabinets of the security classes S 60 P, S 120 P, S 60 D, S 120 D, S 60 DIS and S 120 DIS as well as for product certifications. The type tests for data cabinets comprise a fire resistance test as well as a fire shock and impact test from a height of 9.15 m. For diskette inserts, only a fire resistance test is required.
After the exposure of the test specimens to flames (for 60 minutes and 120 minutes, respectively), the temperature is also measured during a cooling phase (cooling curve). In the fire resistance test of data media (D and DIS), it is additionally checked that the maximum relative air humidity remains under 85%. For data cabinets for paper (P), the air humidity is not taken into account.
The latest version of the European Standard EN 1047-1 was approved in August 2005.
