BS EN 60695-11-4:2011

Brief Introduction

The best method for testing electro technical products with regard to fire hazard is to duplicate exactly the conditions occurring in practice. In most instances, this is not possible. Accordingly, for practical reasons, the testing of electro technical products with regard to fire hazard is best conducted by simulating as closely as possible the actual effects occurring in practice

BS EN 60695-11-4 is an international standard that provides a comprehensive description of the apparatus required to produce a 50 W test flame as well as a description of a calibration procedure to check that the test flame produced meets given requirements.

What does it do?

This part of IEC 60695 provides detailed requirements for the production of a 50 W nominal, pre-mixed type test flame.

Who is it for?

This basic safety publication is intended for use by technical committees in the preparation of Standards in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51.
One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications.
