DESCRIPTION

BS EN 61482-1-2:2014


This standard BS EN 61482-1-2:2014 Live working. Protective clothing against the thermal hazards of an electric arc is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 29.260.99 Other electrical equipment for working in special conditions
  • 13.340.10 Protective clothing
  • 13.220.40 Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products

This part of IEC 61482 specifies procedures to test material and garments intended for use in heat and flame-resistant clothing for workers if there is an electric arc hazard. A directed and constrained electric arc in a test circuit is used to classify material and clothing in two defined arc protection classes.

This International Standard is not dedicated toward measuring the arc rating values (ATPV 1 , ELIM 2 or EBT 3 ). Procedures determining these arc rating values are prescribed in IEC 61482‑1‑1, using an open arc for testing.

Other effects than the thermal effects of an electric arc like noise, light emissions, pressure rise, hot oil, electric shock, the consequences of physical and mental shock or toxic influences are not covered by this standard.

Protective clothing for work intentionally using an electric arc, e.g. arc welding, plasma torch, is not covered by this standard.
