IEC 60068-2-52:2017 RLV

which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 60068-2-52:2017 specifies the application of the cyclic salt mist test to components or equipment designed to withstand a salt-laden atmosphere as salt can degrade the performance of parts manufactured using metallic and/or non-metallic materials. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1996. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

- the entire content has been harmonized with ISO 9227 as far as possible;

- an introduction has been added;

- the scope has been simplified;

- normative references have been updated;

- the general description of the test has been changed;

- a dry chamber has been added to the test apparatus;

- severities have been changed to test methods;

- test methods 7 and 8 have been added;

- information on the test report has been added;

- Figure 1 has been changed to Table 1;

- a typical test apparatus example has been added in a new Annex A;

- a description of each test method has been added in a new Annex B;
