Title Live working - Voltage detectors - Part 1: Capacitive type to be used for voltages exceeding 1 kV a.c.
Project Number 15356
Abstract/Scope Is applicable to portable voltage detectors, with or without built-in power sources, to be used on electrical systems for voltages of 1 kV to 765 kV a.c., and frequencies of 50 Hz and/or 60 Hz. This part applies only to voltage detectors of capacitive type used in contact with the part to be tested, as a complete device including its insulating element or as a separate device, adaptable to an insulating stick which, as a separate tool, is not covered by this standard (see 4.4.1 for general design).
