New Edition of IEC 62631-3-1:2016, Standard for Dielectric and Resistive Properties of Solid Insulating Materials

RevisionThe International Electrotechnical Commission has released the first edition of IEC 62631-3-1:2016. This standard handles “Dielectric and resistive properties of solid insulating materials – Part 3-1: Determination of resistive properties (DC methods) – Volume resistance and volume resistivity – General method.” The standard can now be purchased on the IEC webstore.

Description from the IEC website:

IEC 62631-3-1:2016 covers a method of test for the determination of volume resistance and volume resistivity of electrical insulation materials by applying a DC voltage. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the second edition of IEC 60093:

a) IEC 60093 has been completely revised, both editorially and technically, and incorporated into the new IEC 62631 series;
b) test methods have been updated to current day state of the art;
c) volume and surface resistance and resistivity are now separated to appear in this part of IEC 62631 and in IEC 62631-3-2, respectively.
