IEC 61243-3

IEC 61243-3:2014
Live working - Voltage detectors - Part 3: Two-pole low-voltage type
IEC 61243-3:2014 is applicable to hand-held two-pole voltage detectors with their accessories (crocodile clips and detachable leads) to be used in contact with parts of electrical systems for a.c. voltages not exceeding 1 000 V at nominal frequencies between 16 2/3 Hz and up to 500 Hz, and/or for d.c. voltages not exceeding 1 500 V. Contact electrode extensions are not covered by this standard. Voltage detectors covered by this standard are intended to be used under dry and humid conditions, both indoor and outdoor. They are not intended to be used under rain conditions. Voltage detectors covered by this standard are not intended to be used for continuous operation. Voltage detectors covered by this standard are intended to be used up to 2 000 m above sea level. This standard also includes provisions for the following supplementary functions when available:
- phase indication;
- rotating field indication;
- and continuity check. Other supplementary functions are not covered by this standard. Voltage detectors covered by this standard are not considered as measuring devices. Relevant safety requirements for measuring devices are included in IEC 61010 series. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2009. It is a technical revision which includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- requirement and test to manage interference voltages at power frequencies;
- and informative annex on voltage detectors and the presence of interference voltages.
The contents of the corrigendum of January 2015 and May 2015 have been included in this copy.
