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



Reference EN 61481:2001
Title Live working - Portable phase comparators for use on voltages from 1 kV to 36 kV a.c.
Project Number 12892
Abstract/Scope Is applicable to portable phase comparators with or without a built-in power source to be used on electrical systems for voltages from 1 kV to 36 kV a.c. and frequencies from 50 Hz to 60 Hz. This standard is applicable to two-pole phase comparators having a connecting lead between them, two-pole phase comparators operating with a wireless connection and single-pole phase comparators operating with a memory system. This standard is applicable to phase comparators used in contact with the part to be tested, as a single unit or as a separate device completed by an adaptable insulating pole covered in EN 60855 or EN 61235.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
