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



Reference EN 61869-1:2009
Title Instrument transformers - Part 1: General requirements
Project Number 20678
Abstract/Scope This International Standard is applicable to newly manufactured instrument transformers with analogue or digital output for use with electrical measuring instruments or electrical protective devices having rated frequencies from 15 Hz to 100 Hz. TC 38 decided to restructure the whole set of stand-alone Standards in the IEC 60044 series and transform it into a new set of standards composed of general requirements documents and specific requirements documents. This Standard is the first issue of this new series and can be regarded as a Product Family standard. It contains the general requirements for instrument transformers and shall be read in conjunction with the relevant specific requirements standard for the instrument transformer concerned.
