The International Electrotechnical Commission has released a new edition of IEC 61557-16. IEC 61557-16 ed1.0 applies to “Electrical safety in low voltage distribution systems up to 1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c – Equipment for testing, measuring or monitoring of protective measures – Part 16: Equipment for testing the effectiveness of the protective measures of electrical equipment and/or medical electrical equipment”.
The new edition is available for purchase on the IEC’s website.
“IEC 61557-16:2014 defines performance requirements for test and measurement equipment to determine the effectiveness of the protective measures of electrical measures for electrical equipment and/or medical electrical equipment described in IEC 62353. It is the intention of this standard to achieve comparable measuring results, additional safety for the testing person and negligible electrical stress for the unit under test”.
