Reference EN 60695-2-1/0:1996
Title Fire hazard testing - Part 2: Test methods - Section 1/sheet 0: Glow-wire test methods - General
Project Number 5668
Abstract/Scope Specifies a glow-wire test to simulate the effect of thermal stresses which may be produced by heat sources such as glowing elements or overloaded resistors, for short periods, in order to assess the fire hazard by a simulation technique. The test described in this standard is applicable, in the first place, to electrotechnical equipment, its sub-assemblies and components, but may also be applied to solid electrical insulating materials or other solid combustible materials. Section 1 of EN 60695-2 replaces HD 444.2.1 S1. Has the status of a basic safety publication in accordanc with IEC Guide 104.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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