IEC 60811-508:2012+A1:2017 gives the procedure for a pressure test at high temperature, which typically applies to thermoplastic compounds used for insulating and sheathing materials. IEC 60811-508:2012 cancels and replaces Clause 8 of IEC 60811-3-1:1985, which is withdrawn. Full details of the replacements are shown in Annex A of IEC 60811-100:2012. Significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows:
- re-statement of oven characteristics, especially relating to anti-vibration and to temperature control;
- enhanced detail as to the preparations and testing of flat cables;
- enhanced detail as to thickness and dimensional measurements. See also the Foreword to IEC 60811-100:2012.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60811-100:2012. This consolidated version consists of the first edition (2012) and its amendment 1 (2017). Therefore, no need to order amendment in addition to this publication.
