This international standard is applicable to locking devices used with ball and socket
couplings of string insulator units and used with the corresponding metal fittings standardized
in IEC 60120, when they are supplied separately.
When these locking devices are supplied with an insulator or fitting, they are considered as an
integral part of it. In this case, the relevant test is to be included with those of insulators, as
specified in IEC 60383-1 and IEC 61325. On request, a certificate is to be delivered
confirming that the tests on locking devices as specified in this document have been carried
out. The locking devices are usually supplied with the insulator or corresponding metal fittings.
The object of this document is
• to define the shapes and some standard dimensions for locking devices,
• to define the test methods for locking devices,
• to state the acceptance conditions for supply,
• to give other dimensions for guidance of manufacturing only.
The object of this document does not include the specification of the nature of the material,
and the material covered by the scope of this document does not have a surface coating for
corrosion protection. However, the material which will give rise to significant contact
corrosion(chemical reaction) between the locking device and the ball and socket coupling
does not covered by this document.

This part of IEC 62561 specifies the requirements and tests for isolating spark gaps (ISG) for
lightning protection systems.
ISGs can be used to indirectly bond a lightning protection system to other nearby metalwork
where a direct bond is not permissible for functional reasons.
Typical applications include the connection to
• earth-termination systems of power installations,
• earth-termination systems of telecommunication systems,
• auxiliary earth electrodes of voltage-operated, earth fault circuit breakers,
• rail earth electrode of power and DC railways,
• measuring earth electrodes for laboratories,
• installations with cathodic protection and stray current systems,
• service entry masts for low-voltage overhead cables,
• bypassing insulated flanges and insulated couplings of pipelines.
This does not cover applications where follow currents occur.
NOTE Lightning protection system components (LPSC) can also be suitable for use in hazardous conditions such
as fire and explosive atmosphere. Due regard will be taken of the extra requirements necessary for the
components to be installed in such conditions.

IEC TS 60079-46:2017 specifies requirements for the design, construction, assembly, testing, inspection, marking, documenting and assessment of equipment assemblies for use in explosive atmospheres under the responsibility of the manufacturer of the equipment assembly. The requirements of this document apply to individual items according to the IEC 60079 series or ISO 80079 series that comprise the assembly and that have individual certificates. These individual items are then integrated as part of the equipment assembly. Also included are requirements to address aspects for the assembly which may be beyond the certificates of the individual items forming the assembly. The scope of this document includes assessment of the additional requirements for assemblies for hazardous areas and does not include requirements for non-hazardous areas. It is assumed that compliance with other electrical or mechanical requirements that are applicable for non-hazardous areas will be verified by either the same or different party in addition to the requirements of this document. This document does not apply to:
- equipment which is covered, in its entirety, by one or more IEC 60079 and ISO 80079 equipment types of protection;
- pressurized rooms, “p”, in accordance with IEC 60079-13, artificial ventilation for the protection of analyzer(s) houses in accordance with IEC TR 60079-16, and other standards addressing specific Ex assemblies;
- installation at the end-user site under the scope of IEC 60079-14;
- classification of the hazardous area;
- equipment assemblies for mines susceptible to firedamp (Group I applications);
- inherently explosive situations and dust from explosives or pyrophoric substances (for example explosives manufacturing and processing);
- rooms used for medical purposes;
- electrical installations in areas where the hazard is due to flammable mist.
The specification is only intended to provide validation for the initial supply of an assembly.

Gives guidance for the interpretation of dissolved gas analysis (DGA) which has been developed for bushings, in service, where the main insulation (generally paper) is impregnated with mineral insulating oil according to IEC 60296. Is applicable to oil-filled and impregnated paper bushings in service. The contents of the corrigendum of January 2003 have been included in this copy.

This European Standard applies to:  Fixed installations (downstream the secondary of the substation transformer) and rolling stock equipment linked to the contact line of one of the systems defined in EN 50163;  Rolling stock equipment linked to a train line. This standard gives simulation and/or test requirements for protection against transient overvoltages of such equipment. Long-term overvoltages are not treated in this document.
