IEC 60310:2016 applies to traction and auxiliary power transformers installed on board rolling stock and to the various types of power inductors inserted in the traction and auxiliary circuits of rolling stock, of dry or liquid-immersed design. This standard can also be applied, after agreement between purchaser and manufacturer, to the traction transformers of three-phase AC line-side powered vehicles and to the transformers inserted in the single-phase or poly-phase auxiliary circuits of vehicles, except instrument transformers and transformers of a rated output below 1 kVA single-phase or 5 kVA poly-phase. This new edition takes into account the new generic railway standards, more specifically general service conditions referring to IEC 62498-1 and shock and vibration considerations referring to IEC 61373. It also includes the following significant technical changes with regard to the previous edition:
- temperature limits;
- temperature-rise test;
- dielectric tests;
- partial discharge test;
- inductance measurement methods;
- voltage between terminals withstand test, etc.
