|Publication Date:||1 July 2008|

Scope and object
This part of IEC 60255 is applicable to measuring relays and protection equipment for power system protection, including the control, monitoring and process interface equipment used with those systems.
This standard specifies the requirements for electromagnetic compatibility for measuring relays and protection equipment.
For equipment not incorporating electronic circuits, for example electromechanical relays, tests according to this standard are not required.
The requirements specified in this standard are applicable to measuring relays and protection equipment in a new condition and all tests specified are type tests only.
The object of this standard is to specify limits and test methods, for measuring relays and protection equipment in relation to electromagnetic emissions which may cause interference in other equipment.
These emission limits represent electromagnetic compatibility requirements and have been selected to ensure that the disturbances generated by measuring relays and protection equipment, operated normally in substations and power plants, do not exceed a level which could prevent other equipment from operating as intended.
Test requirements are specified for the enclosure and power supply ports.
This standard is to specify the immunity test requirements for measuring relays and protection equipment in relation to continuous and transient, conducted and radiated disturbances, including electrostatic discharges.
These test requirements represent the electromagnetic compatibility immunity requirements and have been selected so as to ensure an adequate level of immunity for measuring relays and protection equipment.
NOTE 1 Safety considerations are not covered in this standard.
NOTE 2 In special cases, situations will arise where the levels of disturbance may exceed the levels specified in this standard, for example where a hand-held transmitter is used in close proximity to measuring relays and protection equipment. In these instances, special precautions may have to be employed.
