IEC 60358-2:2013 

Coupling capacitors and capacitor dividers - Part 2: AC or DC single-phase coupling capacitor connected between line and ground for power line carrier-frequency (PLC) application


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 60358-2:2013 applies to AC or DC single-phase coupling capacitors, with rated voltage > 1 000 V, connected between line and ground with a low voltage terminal either permanently earthed or connected to a device for power line carrier-frequency (PLC) applications at frequencies from 30 kHz to 500 kHz or similar applications (DC or AC) at power frequencies from 15 Hz to 60 Hz. The transmission requirements for coupling devices for power line carrier (PLC) systems are defined in IEC 60481. Keywords: AC or DC single-phase coupling capacitors, power line carrier-frequency (PLC). This standard cancels and replaces the second edition of IEC 60358 (1990), and constitutes a technical revision.

This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60358-1:2012.
