Safety of power transformers, power supply units and similar – Part 2: Particular requirements for isolating transformers for general use
|Publication Date:||1 January 2003|
|ICS Code (Transformers. Reactors):||29.180|
This part 2 of IEC 61558 applies to stationary or portable, single-phase or polyphase, air-cooled isolating transformers, associated or otherwise, having a rated supply voltage not exceeding 1000 V a.c. and rated frequency not exceeding 500 Hz, the rated output not exceeding:
- 25 kVA for single-phase transformers;
- 40 kVA for polyphase transformers.
This standard is also applicable to isolating transformers without limitation of the rated output, however such transformers are considered as special transformers and are subjected to an agreement between the purchaser and the supplier.
The no-load output voltage or the rated output voltage does not exceed 500 V a.c. or 708 V ripple-free d.c.
1 The no-load output voltage or the rated output voltage may be up to 1000 V a.c. or 1 415 V ripple-free d.c. to be in accordance with the national wiring rules or for a special purpose.
2 This standard is applicable to those isolating transformers used when the installation rules call for the separation of circuits for the supply of certain parts of the circuits or of equipment (portable tools, lawn mowers, etc.).
The no-load output voltage and/or the rated output voltage shall exceed 50 V a.c. and/or 120 V ripple-free d.c.
This standard is also applicable to transformers associated with specific items of equipment, to the extent decided upon by the relevant IEC technical committees.
This standard is applicable to dry type transformers. The windings may be encapsulated or non-encapsulated.
NOTES 3 For transformers filled with liquid dielectric or pulverized material, such as sand, additional requirements are under consideration.
4 In locations where special environmental conditions prevail, particular requirements may be necessary in accordance with IEC 364-5-51.
