Electrical safety in low voltage distribution systems up to 1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. - Equipment for testing, measuring or monitoring of protective measures - Part 8: Insulation monitoring devices for IT systems

active, Most Current
Organization: CENELEC
Publication Date: 1 February 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 170
ICS Code (Power transmission and distribution networks in general): 29.240.01
ICS Code (Measurement of electrical and magnetic quantities): 17.220.20
ICS Code (Electrical insulation in general): 29.080.01
scope:

This part of IEC 61557 specifies the requirements for insulation monitoring devices (IMD) which permanently monitor the insulation resistance RF to earth of unearthed a.c. IT systems, of a.c. IT systems with galvanically connected d.c. circuits having nominal voltages up to 1 000 V a.c., as well as of unearthed d.c. IT systems with voltages up to 1 500 V d.c. independent from the method of measuring.

IT systems are described in IEC 60364-4-41 amongst other literature. Additional data for the selection of devices in other standards should be noted.

NOTE Various standards specify the use of IMDs in IT systems. In such cases, the objective of the equipment is to signal a drop in insulation resistance RF below a minimum limit.

IMDs according to this part of IEC 61557 can also be used for de-energized TT, TN and IT systems or appliances.
