RUT955 ECE Regulation 118
ECE Regulation No. 118 is responsible for uniform technical prescriptions concerning the burning behaviour and/or the capability to repel fuel or lubricant of materials used in the construction of certain categories of motor vehicles.
The standard decides the burning rate of materials in the occupant compartments of motor vehicles. Requirements of burning rates are found in ECE Regulation 118.
The device in question and its components were considered under the following:
|External case of RUT955
|Material: Aluminium with ABS+PC panel
In accordance with Reg. ECE points 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 it is not necessary to submit this component to the tests in the Annexes VI, VII and VIII*.
|The above told connectors are fabricated in plastic material and metal.
Their surface and volume does not exceed respectively the are of 300 cm2 or 120 cm2, considering the most onerous condition foreseen by Reg. 118 ECE (point 18.104.22.168.2).
|Miscellaneous internal components
|Inside the router parts of electrical/electronic components are contained. It is premised that in any case the shape/dimensions of such components do not allow the extraction of samples in the dimensions prescribed by Annex VI para. 3.1 and Annex para. 3 (see Reg. 118 ECE point 22.214.171.124).
Moreover these parts are completely contained in the metallic/plastic case and therefore they are not exposed to any source of flame and/or irradiance.
- Annex 6 - Test to determine the horizontal burning rate of materials
- Annex 7 - Test to determine the melting behaviour of materials
- Annex 8 - Test to determine the vertical burning rate of materials
