This part of IEC 60695, which is a Technical Specification, presents a general characterization of small-scale test flames and associated confirmatory tests based on copper block calorimetry. Guidance is presented for the selection of critical parameters in confirmatory test designs.
NOTE A theory of thermal dynamics presents, in Annex A, additional performance parameters for confirmatory tests, enabling a precise implicit mathematical characterization of confirmatory test heating curves.
This basic safety publication is intended for use by technical committee in the preparation of safety publications in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51.
One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications. The requirements, test methods or test conditions of this basic safety publication will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.
