This part of 61000-5 defines how protective devices for conducted disturbance proposed for HEMP protection shall be specified. It is intended to be used for the harmonization of existing or future specifications issued by protective device manufacturers, electronic equipment manufacturers, administrations and other ultimate buyers. Performance requirements shall be given in future IEC documents. This section covers protective devices currently being used for protection against induced HEMP transients on signal and low voltage power lines (nominal voltage up to 1 kV a.c.). General information can be applied also to high voltage lines. However, in these cases, the additional requirements for the protection levels of existing lightning arresters (especially gapless MO-arresters) are under consideration.
