Title Locking devices for ball and socket couplings of string insulator units - Dimensions and tests
Project Number 15886
Abstract/Scope Applicable to locking devices used with ball and socket couplings of string insulator units and used with the corresponding metal fittings standardized in EN 60120. -Defines the shapes and some standard dimensions for locking devices as well as the test methods for locking devices; -States the acceptance conditions for supply and gives other dimensions for guidance of manufacturing only. Replaces EN 60372-1 (1977) and 60372-2 (1976).

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
