Electrical insulating materials - Determination of the effects of ionizing radiation on insulating materials - Part 2: Procedures for irradiation and test

IEC 60544-2:2012 specifies the controls maintained over the exposure conditions during and after the irradiation of insulating materials with ionizing radiation prior to the determination of radiation-induced changes in physical or chemical properties. This standard specifies a number of potentially significant irradiation conditions as well as various parameters which can influence the radiation-induced reactions under these conditions. The objective of this standard is to emphasize the importance of selecting suitable specimens, exposure conditions and test methods for determining the effect of radiation on appropriately chosen properties. Since many materials are used either in air or in inert environments, standard exposure conditions are recommended for both of these situations. It should be noted that this standard does not consider measurements which are performed during the irradiation. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - alignment with standards recently developed by SC 45A as well as with other parts in the IEC 60544 series.

Matériaux isolants électriques - Détermination des effets des rayonnements ionisants sur les matériaux isolants - Partie 2: Méthodes d'irradiation et d'essai

La CEI 60544-2:2012 spécifie d'abord les contrôles exercés sur les conditions d'exposition pendant et après l'irradiation de matériaux isolants par des rayonnements ionisants, avant de déterminer les changements de propriétés physiques ou chimiques induits par rayonnement. Cette norme discute certaines des principales conditions d'irradiation possibles d'une importance significative et spécifie les divers paramètres qui peuvent influer sur les réactions induites par rayonnement dans ces conditions. L'objectif de la présente norme est de démontrer l'importance du choix d'échantillons, de conditions d'exposition et de méthodes d'essai appropriés pour déterminer les effets des rayonnements sur des propriétés convenablement choisies. Comme un grand nombre de matériaux peuvent être utilisés soit dans l'air, soit dans des environnements inertes, des conditions normales d'exposition sont recommandées pour chacune de ces situations. Il convient de noter que cette norme ne prend pas en compte les mesures réalisées pendant l'irradiation. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: - alignement avec des normes récemment élaborées au sein du SC 45A, ainsi qu'avec d'autres parties de la série CEI 60544.

Električni izolacijski materiali - Navodilo za ugotavljanje učinkov ionizirnega sevanja na izolacijske materiale - 2. del: Postopki za obsevanje in preskušanje

Ta del standarda IEC 60544 določa nadzor nad pogoji izpostavljenosti med obsevanjem izolacijskih materialov z ionizirajočim sevanjem in po njem, preden se določijo spremembe, ki so posledica sevanja, v okviru fizikalnih in kemičnih lastnosti. Ta standard določa število potencialno pomembnih pogojev obsevanja in različne parametre, ki lahko vplivajo na reakcije, ki jih povzroči obsevanje, pod temi pogoji. Cilj tega standarda je poudariti pomen izbire ustreznih vzorcev, pogojev izpostavljenosti in preizkusnih metod za določanje učinka obsevanja na ustrezno izbrane lastnosti. Ker se veliko materialov uporablja v zraku ali v inertnih okoljih, so za obe navedeni vrsti okoliščin priporočljivi standardni pogoji izpostavljenosti. V tem standardu niso obravnavane meritve, ki se izvajajo med obsevanjem.
