Title Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use - Part 031: Safety requirements for hand-held probe assemblies for electrical measurement and test
Project Number 12016
Abstract/Scope Deals with the safety of hand-held and hand-manipulated probe assemblies. They are for use in the interface between an electrical phenomenon and test or measurement equipment. Three main types are described: (A) Low-voltage and high-voltage, non-attenuating probe assemblies. For voltages less lthan 63 kV. They do not incorporate active components. (B) High-voltage attenuating or divider probe assemblies. For voltages less than 63 kV. They incorporate a divider function. (C) Low voltage attenuating or divider probe assemblies. For voltages less than 1 kV r.m.s or 1,5 kV d.c. They incorporate a signal conditioning function.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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