This specification covers the requirements and testing procedures for five types of electrical insulation monitoring devices intended as permanently installed units that are used in the detection of ohmic insulation faults to ground in active AC ungrounded electrical systems. This specification does not address devices which are not intended for DC or AC ungrounded systems that operated with DC components, unless AC to DC conversion is isolated from the monitored system with transformers. Information required in the equipment manual that shall be provided with this system are also detailed.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers electrical insulation monitoring devices intended as permanently installed units for use in the detection of ohmic insulation faults to ground in active AC ungrounded electrical systems.
1.2 Limitations—This specification does not cover devices which are not intended for operation for: DC ungrounded systems or AC ungrounded systems with DC components unless AC to DC conversion is isolated from the monitored system with transformers.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 9, of this specification: 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.
