BS EN 60060-1:2010

High-voltage test techniques. General definitions and test requirements

Status : Current   Published : February 2011



What is BS EN 60060-1:2010?

BS EN 60060-1 provides definitions and requirements for high voltage tests. It applies to dielectric tests with direct voltage; alternating voltage; impulse voltage; or combined or composite voltages.

How does it work?

BS EN 60060-1 starts with the general requirements for testing procedures, including atmospheric dry tests, wet tests and artificial pollution tests. It also covers tests with direct, alternating, lightning-impulse and switching-impulse voltages. 

Who should buy it?

  • Electric engineers
  • Anyone responsible for doing high voltage tests
