Electrical measuring transducers for converting A.C. and D.C. electrical quantities to analogue or digital signals

IEC 60688:2012 applies to transducers with electrical inputs and outputs for making measurements of a.c. or d.c. electrical quantities. This International Standard is intended to specify the terminology and definitions relating to transducers whose main application are in industry; to unify the test methods used in evaluating transducer performance; and to specify accuracy limits and output values for transducers. The output signal may be in the form of an analogue direct current, an analogue direct voltage or in digital form. In this case, that part of the transducer utilized for communication purposes will need to be compatible with the external system. This standard applies to measuring transducers used for converting electrical quantities such as current, voltage, active power, reactive power, power factor, phase angle, frequency, harmonics or total harmonic distortion, and apparent power to an output signal. This standard is not applicable for instrument transformers that comply with IEC 60044 series; transmitters for use in industrial process applications that comply with the IEC 60770 series; performance measuring and monitoring devices (PMD) that comply with IEC 61557-12.

Elektrische Messumformer zur Umwandlung von elektrischen Wechselstromgrößen und Gleichstromgrößen in analoge oder digitale Signale

Transducteurs électriques de mesure convertissant les grandeurs électriques alternatives ou continues en signaux analogiques ou numériques

La CEI 60688:2012 s'applique aux transducteurs à grandeurs d'entrées et de sorties électriques destinés à mesurer des grandeurs électriques alternatives ou continues. La présente Norme internationale a pour objet de spécifier la terminologie et les définitions relatives aux transducteurs dont l'application principale est du domaine de l'industrie; d'unifier les méthodes d'essai utilisées pour évaluer les caractéristiques de fonctionnement des transducteurs; et de spécifier les limites de précision et les valeurs de sortie des transducteurs. Le signal de sortie peut être sous la forme de courant continu analogique ou d'une tension continue ou d'un signal numérique. Dans ce cas, la partie du transducteur utilisée à des fins de communication doit pouvoir être compatible avec le système extérieur. Cette norme s'applique aux transducteurs de mesure destinés à convertir des grandeurs électriques alternatives, telles que courants, tensions, puissances actives, puissances réactives, facteurs de puissance, angles de phase, fréquences, harmoniques ou distorsion harmonique totale, et puissances apparentes en signal de sortie. Ce standard ne s'applique pas pour les transformateurs de mesure répondant aux normes de la série CEI 60044; les transducteurs utilisés dans le processus industriel répondant aux normes de la série CEI 60770; et les dispositifs de mesure et de surveillance des performances (PMD) répondant à la norme CEI 61557-12.

Električni merilni pretvorniki za pretvarjanje izmeničnih električnih veličin v analogne ali digitalne signale (IEC 60688:2012)

Ta mednarodni standard se uporablja za pretvornike z električnimi vhodi in izhodi za izvajanje meritev izmeničnih ali enosmernih električnih veličin. Izhodni signal je lahko v obliki analognega enosmernega toka, analogne enosmerne napetosti ali v digitalni obliki. V tem primeru mora biti tisti del pretvornika, ki se uporablja za komunikacijo, združljiv z zunanjim sistemom. Ta standard se uporablja za merjenje pretvornikov, ki se uporabljajo za pretvarjanje električnih veličin, kot so: – tok, – napetost, – delovna moč, – jalova moč, – faktor moči, – fazni kot, – frekvenca, – harmoniki ali skupna harmonska popačenja, – navidezna moč v izhodni signal. Ta standard se ne uporablja za: – instrumentne transformatorje, ki izpolnjujejo zahteve skupine standardov IEC 60044; – oddajnike za uporabo v industrijskih procesih, ki izpolnjujejo zahteve skupine standardov IEC 60770; – naprave za merjenje in nadzorovanje lastnosti/parametrov električnih omrežij (PMD), ki izpolnjujejo zahteve standarda IEC 61557-12. V okviru merilnega razpona je izhodni signal funkcija merjene veličine. Morda je potrebno pomožno napajanje. Ta standard se uporablja: a) če je nazivna frekvenca vhoda/vhodov med 0 Hz in 1500 Hz; b) če je merilni pretvornik del sistema za merjenje neelektrične veličine, se lahko ta standard uporablja za električni merilni pretvornik, če sicer spada na področje uporabe tega standarda; c) za pretvornike, ki se uporabljajo za različne namene, kot sta telemetrija in kontrola procesa, ter v enem od številnih opredeljenih okolij. Ta mednarodni standard je namenjen: – določanju terminologije in opredelitev v zvezi s pretvorniki, ki se uporabljajo predvsem v industriji; – poenotenju preskusnih metod za ocenjevanje lastnosti pretvornika; – opredelitvi mejnih vrednosti točnosti in izhodnih vrednosti za pretvornike.

ELECTRICAL MEASURING TRANSDUCERS
FOR CONVERTING A.C. AND D.C. ELECTRICAL
QUANTITIES TO ANALOGUE OR DIGITAL SIGNALS
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard 60688 has been prepared by IEC Technical Committee 85: Measuring

equipment for electrical and electromagnetic quantities.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1992 and its

Amendment 1 (1997) and Amendment 2 (2001). It constitutes a technical revision

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
– extending the scope to DC quantities;

– extending the scope to harmonics, total harmonic distortion and apparent power;

– adaptation of the requirements for digital transducers;
– updating normative references;
– updating safety requirements with the IEC 61010 series;
– updating EMC requirements with IEC 61326-1.

INTRODUCTION

New transducers can now be equipped with micro-processors that utilize digital data

processing, communication methods and auxiliary sensors. This makes them more complex

than conventional analogue transducers and gives them considerable added value.

The class index system of classification used in this standard is based upon the IEC 60051

series: Direct acting indicating analogue electrical measuring instruments and their

accessories. Under this system, the permitted variations of the output signal due to varying

influence quantities – ambient temperature, voltage, frequency, etc., – are implicit in the clas-

sification.

For those unfamiliar with the class index system, a word of warning is necessary. If, for

example, a transducer is classified as Class 1, it does not mean that the error under practical

conditions of use will be within ±1 % of the actual value of the output or ±1 % of the full output

value. It means that the error should not exceed ±1 % of the fiducial value under closely

specified conditions. If the influence quantities are varied between the limits specified by the

nominal ranges of use, a variation of amount comparable with the value of the class index

may be incurred for each influence quantity.

The permissible error of a transducer under working conditions is the sum of the permissible

intrinsic error and of the permissible variations due to each of the influence quantities.

However, the actual error is likely to be much smaller because not all of the influence

quantities are likely to be simultaneously at their most unfavourable values and some of the

variations may cancel one another. It is important that these facts be taken into consideration

when specifying transducers for a particular purpose.

Furthermore, some of the terms used in this standard are different from those used in

IEC 60051 due to the fundamental differences between indicating instruments and measuring

transducers.

All statements of performance are related to the output which is governed by two basic terms:

– "the nominal value", which may have a positive or a negative sign or both;

– "the span", which is the range of values of the output signal from maximum positive to

maximum negative, if appropriate.

ELECTRICAL MEASURING TRANSDUCERS
FOR CONVERTING A.C. AND D.C. ELECTRICAL
QUANTITIES TO ANALOGUE OR DIGITAL SIGNALS
1 Scope

This International Standard applies to transducers with electrical inputs and outputs for

making measurements of a.c. or d.c. electrical quantities. The output signal may be in the

form of an analogue direct current, an analogue direct voltage or in digital form. In this case,

that part of the transducer utilized for communication purposes will need to be compatible with

the external system.

This standard applies to measuring transducers used for converting electrical quantities such

as the following:
– current,
– voltage,
– active power,
– reactive power,
– power factor,
– phase angle,
– frequency,
– harmonics or total harmonic distortion,
– apparent power
to an output signal.
This standard is not applicable for:
– instrument transformers that comply with IEC 60044 series;

– transmitters for use in industrial process applications that comply with the IEC 60770

series;

– performance measuring and monitoring devices (PMD) that comply with IEC 61557-12.

Within the measuring range, the output signal is a function of the measurand. An auxiliary

supply may be needed.
This standard applies:
a) if the nominal frequency of the input(s) lies between 0 Hz and 1 500 Hz;

b) if a measuring transducer is part of a system for the measurement of a non-electrical

quantity, this standard may be applied to the electrical measuring transducer, if it

otherwise falls within the scope of this standard;

c) to transducers for use in a variety of applications such as telemetry and process control

and in one of a number of defined environments.
This International Standard is intended:

– to specify the terminology and definitions relating to transducers whose main application is

in industry;
– to unify the test methods used in evaluating transducer performance;
---------------------- Page: 13 ----------------------
