Fire hazard testing – Part 2-20: Glowing/hot wire based test methods – Hot-wire coil test method – Apparatus, verification, test method and guidance

active, Most Current
Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 April 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 34
ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
ICS Code (Electrical engineering in general): 29.020
scope:

This part of IEC 60695, which is a technical specification, describes a test method that applies to solid electrical insulating materials of which test specimens can be provided. The test measures the time required to ignite a test specimen when it is affected by heat from an electrically heated wire wound around the test specimen. If the test specimen drips, the time at which this occurs is also recorded.

The test method can be used to provide classifications which can be used for quality assurance, the preselection of materials of products as described in IEC 60695-1-30, or to verify the required minimum classification of materials used in end products.

This basic safety publication is intended for use by technical committees in the preparation of standards 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.
