    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers forced-convection ventilated electrically-heated ovens, operating over all or part of the temperature range from 20°C above the ambient temperature to 500°C, and used for thermal endurance evaluation of electrical insulating materials.

    1.2 The specification requirements for Type I ovens are based on IEC Publication 216-4-1, and are technically identical to it. The requirements for Type II ovens are essentially identical to the requirements of Specification D2436. This specification and an associated test method, D5374, have replaced Specification D2436.

    1.3 While the ovens covered by this specification are intended primarily for thermal endurance evaluation, they can also be used wherever their characteristics make them suitable for other applications.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
