DIN EN 50173 defines the bending radius for copper cable:
Minimum bending radius during installation: 8 times the cable diameter.
Minimum bending radius after installation (only once): 4 times the cable diameter.
In the product standard DIN VDE 0298 part 3 the permitted bending radius for electric lines depends on the conductor diameter Ø are specified:
For multi-core plastic-insulated cables
4 x Ø
For flexible cables with free movement:
Ø = 8 to 12mm: 4 x Ø
Ø = 12 to 20mm: 5 x Ø
For flexible cables for fixed installation:
Ø = 8 to 12mm: 3 x Ø
Ø = 12 to 20mm: 4 x Ø
If the bend radius is not adhered to during the cable routing, the material stretches and compressions change the mechanical construction of the cable. The result is a degradation of the electrical properties.
