INSTALLATION OF ELECTRIC CABLES OR LINES, OR OF COMBINED OPTICAL AND ELECTRIC CABLES OR LINES( distribution points incorporating switches H02B; guiding telephone cords H04M 1/15 ; cable ducts or mountings for telephone or telegraph exchange installations H04Q 1/06 )
NOTE
-

1. This subclass covers installation of communication cables or lines, including those comprising a combination of optical and electrical conductors, or of lightning conductors as well as installation of power cables or lines.


2. This subclass does not cover installation of purely optical cables, which is covered by groups
{
G02B 6/44 C
}
, G02B 6/46 .


3. In this subclass, the following expression is used with the meaning indicated:

- "electric cable" includes cables comprising optical
conductors, e.g. fibres, in combination with electrical
conductors.

In this subclass it is desirable to add indexing codes of group H02G 2200/00 whenever appropriate
