Scope and object
The IEC 61577 series covers the general features concerning test and calibration of radon and radon decay products measuring instruments. It is also intended to help define type tests, which have to be conducted in order to qualify these instruments. These type tests are described in IEC 61577-2 and IEC 61577-3. This standard addresses only the instruments and associated methods for measuring isotopes 220 and 222 of radon and their subsequent short-lived decay products in gases.
IEC 61577-4 concerns the System for Test Atmospheres with Radon (STAR) needed for testing, in a reference atmosphere, the instruments measuring radon and RnDP. The clauses that follow do neither claim to solve all the problems involved in the production of equipment for setting up reference atmospheres for radon and its decay products, nor to describe all the methods for doing so. They do however set out to be a guide enabling those faced with such problems to choose the best methods for adoption in full knowledge of the facts.
