IEC 62153-4-8:2018 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is available in English only and provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between the official IEC Standard and its previous edition.

IEC 62153-4-8:2018 specifies a test method for determining the capacitive coupling admittance, the capacitive coupling impedance and the coupling capacitance by the use of a triaxial set-up in a similar manner as for the measurement of the transfer impedance (see IEC 62153-4-3). Most cables have negligible capacitive coupling; however, in the case of cables with loose single-braids, the coupling through the holes in the screen shall be determined by the measurement of the capacitive coupling admittance. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2006. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) use of the triaxial set-up in a similar manner as for the measurement of the transfer impedance (see IEC 62153-4-3),
b) use of vector network analyser instead of capacitance bridge or pulse generator.
