International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 60060-1:2010
Title High-voltage test techniques - Part 1: General definitions and test requirements
Project Number 21831
Abstract/Scope IEC 60060-1:2010 applies to dielectric tests with alternating voltage; dielectric tests with direct voltage; dielectric tests with impulse voltage and dielectric tests with combinations of the above. This document is applicable to tests on equipment having its highest voltage for equipment Um above 1 kV. The third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 1989, and constitutes a technical revision. The major technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: - artifical pollution test procedures were removed as they are now described in IEC 60507, - measurement of impulse current has been transferred to a new standard on current measurement (IEC 62475), - the atmospheric correction factors are now presented as formulas.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
