INTRODUCTION

General

This publication deals with dry heat tests applicable both to heat-dissipating and non heat-dissipating specimens. For non heat-dissipating specimens, Tests Ba and Bb do not deviate essentially from earlier issues.

The object of the dry heat test is limited to the determination of the ability of components, equipment or other articles to be used or stored at high temperature.

These dry heat tests do not enable the ability of specimens to withstand or operate during temperature variations to be assessed. In this case, it would be necessary to use Test N: Change of temperature.

The dry heat tests are subdivided as follows:

Dry heat tests for non heat-dissipating specimens

— with sudden change of temperature, Ba;

— with gradual change of temperature, Bb.

Dry heat tests for heat-dissipating specimens

— with sudden change of temperature, Bc;

— with gradual change of temperature, Bd.

The procedures given in this publication are normally intended for specimens which achieve temperature stability during the performance of the test procedure.

The duration of the test commences at the time when temperature stability of the specimen has been reached.

For the exceptional cases when the specimen does not reach temperature stability during the performance of the test procedure, the duration of the test commences at the time when the test chamber reaches the test temperature.

The relevant specification shall define:

a) the rate of change of temperature in the test chamber;

b) the time at which the specimens are introduced into the test chamber;

c) the time at which the exposure commences;

d) the time at which the specimens are energized.

For these cases, the specification writer will fìnd guidance on choosing the above four parameters in IEC Publication 68-3-1. (Amendments to cover these cases are under consideration.)
