IEC/IEEE 63195-2:2022 specifies computational procedures for conservative and reproducible computations of power density (PD) incident to a human head or body due to radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic field (EMF) transmitting devices. The computational procedures described are finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) and finite element methods (FEM), which are computational techniques that can be used to determine electromagnetic quantities by solving Maxwell’s equations within a specified computational uncertainty. The procedures specified here apply to exposure assessments for a significant majority of the population during the use of hand-held and body-worn RF transmitting devices. The methods apply to devices that can feature single or multiple transmitters or antennas, and that can be operated with their radiating part or parts at distances up to 200 mm from a human head or body.
This document can be employed to determine conformity with any applicable maximum PD requirements of different types of RF transmitting devices used in close proximity to the head and body, including those combined with other RF transmitting or non-transmitting devices or accessories (e.g. belt-clip), or embedded in garments. The overall applicable frequency range of these protocols and procedures is from 6 GHz to 300 GHz.
The RF transmitting device categories covered in this document include but are not limited to mobile telephones, radio transmitters in personal computers, desktop and laptop devices, and multi-band and multi-antenna devices.
The procedures of this document do not apply to PD assessment of electromagnetic fields emitted or altered by devices or objects intended to be implanted in the body.
NOTE For the assessment of the combined exposure from simultaneous transmitters at frequencies below 6 GHz, the relevant standards for SAR computation are IEC/IEEE 62704-1:2017 and IEC/IEEE 62704-4:2020.
This publication is published as an IEC/IEEE Dual Logo standard.

IEC/IEEE 63195-1:2022 specifies protocols and test procedures for repeatable and reproducible measurements of power density (PD) that provide conservative estimates of exposure incident to a human head or body due to radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic field (EMF) transmitting communication devices, with a specified measurement uncertainty. These protocols and procedures apply for exposure evaluations of a significant majority of the population during the use of hand-held and body-worn RF transmitting communication devices. The methods apply for devices that can feature single or multiple transmitters or antennas, and can be operated with their radiating structure(s) at distances up to 200 mm from a human head or body.
The methods of this document can be used to determine conformity with applicable maximum PD requirements of different types of RF transmitting communication devices being used in close proximity to the head and body, including if combined with other RF transmitting or non-transmitting devices or accessories (e.g. belt-clip), or embedded in garments. The overall applicable frequency range of these protocols and procedures is from 6 GHz to 300 GHz.
The RF transmitting communication device categories covered in this document include but are not limited to mobile telephones, radio transmitters in personal computers, desktop and laptop devices, and multi-band and multi-antenna devices.
NOTE 1 The protocols and test procedures in this document can be adapted to evaluate exposure also due to non-communication types of devices operating in close proximity to the head and body, but these devices are not in the scope of this document.
NOTE 2 For the assessment of the combined exposure from simultaneous transmitters at frequencies below 6 GHz, the relevant standards for SAR measurements are IEC/IEEE 62209-1528:2020 and IEC/IEEE 62209-3:2019 [1].
NOTE 3 Between 6 GHz and 10 GHz, the scopes of this document and IEC/IEEE 62209-1528:2020 overlap. According to ICNIRP [2] and IEEE ICES TC95 [3] exposure guidelines, power density is the conformity metric in this frequency range. SAR can be used as conformity metric if local regulatory requirements allow it. (e.g. in case where a single transmit band includes test channels at both below and above 6 GHz).
The procedures of this document do not apply for EMF measurements of devices or objects intended to be implanted in the body.

IEC 60587:2022 describes two test methods for the evaluation of electrical insulating materials for use under severe ambient conditions at power frequencies (45 Hz to 65 Hz) by the evaluation of the resistance to tracking and erosion, using a liquid contaminant and inclined plane specimens. The two methods are:
- Method 1: test at constant voltage,
- Method 2: test at stepwise increased voltage.
Method 1 is the most widely used method as there is less need for continual inspection.
The test conditions are designed to accelerate the production of the effects, but do not reproduce all the conditions encountered in service.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) an improved description of the experimental methods has been implemented;
b) an improved description of the preparation of the test specimens has been implemented;
c) a more detailed description of the electrode material and of the electrode quality has been added;

This part of IEC 60404 is applicable to grain-oriented electrical steel strip and sheet specified in IEC 60404-8-7 for the measurement of magnetostriction characteristics under an applied AC magnetic field at 50 Hz or 60Hz.
This document defines the general principles and technical details of the measurement of magnetostriction characteristics of grain-oriented electrical steel strip and sheet by means of a single sheet tester and an optical sensor.
NOTE 1 The accelerometer method [5] is also an established method for the measurement of magnetostriction.
However, it is more suited to the measurement of magnetostriction under an externally applied tensile or compressive stress, not zero stress, because it places a weight on the test specimen to prevent a deformation of the test specimen.
Since this document includes the measurement at zero stress, the optical sensor method is provided as the optimum method.
This document is applicable to the measurement of:
- the butterfly loop;
- the peak-to-peak value λp-p;
- the zero-to-peak value λ0-p.
The magnetostriction characteristics are determined for a sinusoidal induced secondary voltage, for a specified peak value of the magnetic polarization and at a specified magnetizing frequency.
NOTE 2 Throughout this document the term “magnetic polarization” is used as described in IEC 60050-121-11-54.
In some standards of the 60404 series, the term “magnetic flux density” is used.

This part of IEC 62056 describes two sets of profiles: the first set of profiles allows a
bidirectional communication between a client and a server. This set of profiles is made of three
profiles allowing local bus data exchange with stations either energized or not. For nonenergized
stations, the bus supplies energy for data exchange. Three different profiles are
supported:
• base profile: this three-layer profile provides remote communication services;
NOTE 1 This first profile was published in IEC 61142:1993 and became known as the Euridis standard.
• profile with DLMS: this profile allows using DLMS services as specified in IEC 61334-4-41;
NOTE 2 This second profile was published in IEC 62056-31:1999.
• profile with DLMS/COSEM: this profile allows using the DLMS/COSEM Application layer and
the COSEM object model as specified in IEC 62056-5-3 and in IEC 62056-6-2 respectively.
The three profiles use the same physical layer and they are fully compatible, meaning that
devices implementing any of these profiles can be operated on the same bus. The transmission
medium is twisted pair using carrier signalling and it is known as the Euridis Bus.
The second set of profiles allows unidirectional communication between a given Energy
Metering device and a Customer Energy Management System. This second set is made up of
three profiles.
Subclause 4.2.1 to Clause 8 included specify the bidirectional communication using twisted pair
signalling and Clause 9 to 9.5 the unidirectional communication using twisted pair signalling.

Clause 1 of IEC 61869-1:2007 is replaced by the following:
This part of IEC 61869 is a product standard and covers only additional requirements for standalone
merging units (SAMUs) used for AC applications having rated frequencies from 15 Hz to
100 Hz. The digital output format specification is not covered by this document; it is
standardized in IEC 61869-9 as an application of IEC 61850, which specifies the power utility
communication architecture.
This document covers SAMUs having standardized analogue inputs (for example: 1 A, 5 A,
3,25 V / √3 or 100 V / √3) provided by instrument transformers compliant with relevant product
standards (e.g. IEC 61869-2 to IEC 61869-5, IEC 61869-7, IEC 61869-8, IEC 61869-10,
IEC 61869-11, IEC 60044-1 to IEC 60044-6, IEC 60185, IEC 60186, IEEE C57.13), and aims
to convert them to the digital output compliant with IEC 61869-9. Other input and output types
are outside the scope of this document. Appropriate SAMU functionality can be combined with
switchgear controller functionality defined in IEC 62271-3 or other IED functionality defined in
IEC 60255 (all parts).
Cyber security requirements are outside the scope of this document and are covered by the
IEC 62351 series.

This part of IEC 61788 specifies the measurements of the local critical current density (Jc) and
its distribution in large-area high-temperature superconducting (HTS) films by an inductive
method using third-harmonic voltages. The most important consideration for precise
measurements is to determine Jc at liquid nitrogen temperatures by an electric-field criterion
and obtain current-voltage characteristics from its frequency dependence. Although it is
possible to measure Jc in applied DC magnetic fields [20] [21], the scope of this document is
limited to the measurement without DC magnetic fields.
This technique intrinsically measures the critical sheet current that is the product of Jc and the
film thickness d. The range and measurement resolution for Jcd of HTS films are as follows.
– Jcd: from 200 A/m to 32 kA/m (based on results, not limitation).
– Measurement resolution: 100 A/m (based on results, not limitation).

IEC 62056-3-1:2021 is available as IEC 62056-3-1:2021 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
IEC 62056-3-1:2021 describes two sets of profiles: the first set of profiles allows a bidirectional communication between a client and a server. This set of profiles is made of three profiles allowing local bus data exchange with stations either energized or not. For non-energized stations, the bus supplies energy for data exchange. Three different profiles are supported:
• base profile: this three-layer profile provides remote communication services;
NOTE 1 This first profile was published in IEC 61142:1993 and became known as the Euridis standard.
• profile with DLMS: this profile allows using DLMS services as specified in IEC 61334 4 41;
NOTE 2 This second profile was published in IEC 62056-31:1999.
• profile with DLMS/COSEM: this profile allows using the DLMS/COSEM Application layer and the COSEM object model as specified in IEC 62056 5 3 and in IEC 62056 6 2 respectively.
The three profiles use the same physical layer and they are fully compatible, meaning that devices implementing any of these profiles can be operated on the same bus. The transmission medium is twisted pair using carrier signalling and it is known as the Euridis Bus.
The second set of profiles allows unidirectional communication between a given Energy Metering device and a Customer Energy Management System. This second set is made up of three profiles.
Subclause 4.2.1 to Clause 8 included specify the bidirectional communication using twisted pair signalling and Clause 9 to 9.5 the unidirectional communication using twisted pair signalling.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 62056-3-1, issued in 2013, and constitutes a technical revision.
The main technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows:
• addition of a profile which makes use of the IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM Application layer and COSEM object model;
• review of the data link layer which is split into two parts:
– a pure Data Link layer;
– a "Support Manager" entity managing the communication media;
• ability to negotiate the communication speed, bringing baud rate up to 9 600 bauds.
