Reference EN 61243-3:1998
Title Live working - Voltage detectors - Part 3: Two-pole low-voltage type
Project Number 12231
Abstract/Scope Is applicable to two-pole voltage detectors to be used on electrical systems for nominal voltages not exceeding 1 000 V a.c. and/or 1500 V d.c and below 500 Hz (nominal frequencies). The detector types are classified as follows: voltage class A: up to and including 500 V a.c./750 V d.c.; voltage class B: up to and including 1 000 V a.c./ 1 500 V d.c. Low-voltage detectors covered by this standard are not intended to provide measurement of absolute values. Measuring devices are excluded form this standard. NOTE - The requirements for measuring devices are specified in EN 61010-1 and EN 61010-2-031.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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