Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers insulation monitoring devices for stripboard electrical systems. Materials covered by this specification include Type I (ac device) and Type II (dc device) electrical system insulation monitoring devices used in the detection of ohmic insulation faults to ground in either active ac ungrounded electrical systems with dc components (Type I) or dc ungrounded electrical systems (Type II). However, devices used in ac ungrounded systems without dc components are not included. The devices shall undergo conformance and routine tests to ensure that the device meets the requirements specified. Conformance tests shall included testing of response time, peak voltage, input impedance or resistance, built-in meters, and impulse voltage withstand capabilities, whereas routine tests shall include testing of response value, self-test function, built-in meters, and voltage.
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.
1.1.1 Type I is an AC device intended as a permanently installed unit for use in the detection of ohmic insulation faults to ground in active AC ungrounded electrical systems up to 1000 VAC, having DC components up to 1500 VDC.
1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 7 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.
