Polymeric insulators for indoor and outdoor use with a nominal voltage >1 000 V General definitions, test methods and acceptance criteria
|Publication Date:||1 October 2005|
|ICS Code (Insulators):||29.080.10|
Scope and object
This International Standard is applicable to polymeric insulators whose insulating body consists of one or various organic materials. Polymeric insulators covered by this standard include both solid core and hollow insulators. They are intended for use on overhead lines and in indoor and outdoor equipment with a rated voltage greater than 1 000 V.
The object of this standard is
- to define the common terms used for polymeric insulators,
- to prescribe common test methods for design tests on polymeric insulators,
- to prescribe acceptance or failure criteria, if applicable,
- to give recommendations for polymeric insulator test standards or product standards, complemented by specific requirements as needed.
These tests, criteria and recommendations are intended to ensure a satisfactory life-time under normal operating and environmental conditions (see Clause 5).
