Using the application classes defined in these documents, planners and developers can record the essential cornerstones of an industrial cabling system and specify the components. In the case of data cables

, thedefinition depends on the installation area to be bridged, which can be subject to a wide variety of influences.

This aspect of industrial cabling is taken into account in the European standardEN 50173 (-3). In addition, the MICE concept provides the user with a set of tools for selecting data cables.
