Newly Released IEC 61788-22-1:2017 for Superconducting Sensors and Detectors


The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has released IEC 61788-22-1:2017.  This standard applies to Superconductivity – Part 22-1: Superconducting electronic devices – Generic specification for sensors and detectors and is now available on the IEC webstore.

Description: “IEC 61788-22-1:2017 describes general items concerning the specifications for superconducting sensors and detectors, which are the basis for specifications given in other parts of IEC 61788 for various types of sensors and detectors.

The sensors and detectors described are basically made of superconducting materials and depend on superconducting phenomena or related phenomena. The objects to be measured (measurands) include magnetic fields, electromagnetic waves, photons of various energies, electrons, ions, a‑particles, and others.
