Standard for Interrupter Switches for Alternating Current, Rated Above 1000 Volts
|Publication Date:||22 July 1998|
This standard applies to switching devices, interrupters, and interrupter switches (as defined in IEEE Std C37.100-1992) for alternating current, rated above 1000 volts and used indoors, outdoors, or in enclosures for which a switching rating is to be assigned. While this standard covers the basic requirements of interrupter switches used indoors, outdoors, and in enclosures, other standards such as IEEE Std C37.20.2-1993, IEEE Std C37.20.3-1987, IEEE Std C37.20.4-1996, IEEE Std C37.71-1984, and IEEE PC37.73 (D.9, 1997) also contain requirements for switches used in enclosures. This standard does not apply to load-break separable insulated connectors, which are covered by IEEE Std 386-1995 [B7].1 This standard also does not apply to circuit-breakers, circuit-switchers, or reclosers.
NOTE-IEEE PC37.73 (D.9, 1997) is currently under development. Requirements specified by this document will become effective when it is approved as a standard.
