IEC 61083-1:2021 pdf free download Instruments and software used for measurements in high-voltage and high-current tests – Part 1: Requirements for instruments for impulse tests
This part of lEC 61083 is applicable to digital recorders,including digital oscilloscopes, usedfor measurements during tests with high impulse voltages and high impulse currents. lt specifiesthe measuring characteristics and calibrations required to meet the measuring uncertaintiesand procedures specified in IEC 60060-2 and lEC 62475.
This document
defines the terms specifically related to digital recorders;
specifies the necessary requirements for such instruments to ensure their compliance withthe requirements for high-voltage and high-current impulse tests;
establishes the tests and procedures necessary to demonstrate their compliance;
covers digital recorders that permit access to raw data from permanent or temporary storage;covers peak meters used for measuring the extreme value of lightning impulses, the peakvalue of switching or current impulses.
lt has the status of a horizontal standard in accordance with lEC Guide 108.
This horizontal standard is primarily intended for use by technical committees in the preparationof standards in accordance with the principles laid down in lEC Guide 108. one of theresponsibilities of a technical committee is,wherever applicable, to make use of horizontalstandards in the preparation of its publications. The contents of this horizontal standard will notapply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.
