Tracked Changes (Redline) - Test procedure for the determination of the temperature index of enamelled and tape wrapped winding wires
|Publication Date:||26 February 2020|
|ICS Code (Wires):||29.060.10|
This International Standard specifies, in accordance with the provisions of IEC 60216-1, a method for evaluating the temperature index of enamelled wire, varnished or unvarnished with an impregnating agent, and of tape wrapped round and rectangular wire, in air at atmospheric pressure by periodically monitoring changes in response to AC proof voltage tests. This procedure does not apply to fibre-insulated wire or wire covered with tapes containing inorganic fibres.
NOTE The data obtained according to this test procedure provide the designer and development engineer with information for the selection of winding wire for further evaluation of insulation systems and equipment tests.
