For each category of test impulse a new set of samples can be used.

It is admissible to measure the impulse-limiting voltage 6.2.1.3 while testing impulse durability 6.2.1.6.

Test not applicable if there is a linear component between its terminals.
Each test series is carried out on three samples.
Applicable only for 4/5 terminal SPD (see fig. 1d and 1e)
2 Normative references
Replace the existing reference to IEC 60999-1:1999 with the following:

total discharge current I
Total

current which flows through the earthing terminal (common terminal C) of a multi-terminal

SPD during the total discharge current test.
NOTE This may also be called “Total surge current”.
Add the following new definitions:
3.33
nominal discharge current I
crest value of the current through the SPD having a current waveshape of 8/20

crest value of a discharge current (10/350) through the SPD
4.2 Test temperature and humidity
Replace the existing first paragraph with the following:

The SPDs shall be tested at a temperature of 25 °C ± 10 °C with relative humidity from 25 %

to 75 %.

If required by the manufacturer or customer, the SPDs shall be tested at the extreme

temperatures of the service temperature range selected for the intended application. The

selected temperature range may be narrower than the full range of 4.1 depending on the

application.
4.3 SPD testing
Replace the existing third paragraph with the following:

When a base is used for testing, the measurements shall be made as close as possible to the

terminals of the SPD base (termination module) intended for external connections. Waveform

recorders used for measurements shall have a minimum performance in accordance with

IEC 61083-1 with respect to the specific measurement.
NOTE For waveform recorders settings, see Annex D.
Replace the existing fourth paragraph with the following:

SPDs of Figures 1c, 1e and 1f may have a common current path (including protective

components or just internal connections) that conducts the total impulse current I . The

Total

manufacturer shall state the maximum value of impulse current for this current path. This

value of impulse current may be less than n times the maximum current capability of each line

terminal, where n equals the number of line terminals.
Delete the 5th paragraph of 4.3.
5.1.1 Identification and documentation
Replace items e), j), l) and m) with the following:
e) Maximum continuous operating voltage U (AC and/or DC)

j) Impulse rating (according to Table 3 - category and corresponding parameters e.g. C2:

2k V/ 1kA)
l) Transmission characteristics (appropriate to the intended SPD use)
m) Additional information, where applicable:
• replaceable components,
• the use of radioisotopes,

• ‘i ’ and ‘AC overstress current’ when impulse overstress test (6.2.1.7) is required

• surge currents as I , I , I I
SM n imp, Total
Add the following item to the end of the list:

o) (SPD-) Category and rating (if the category is printed on the SPD it is recommended to

frame the category in a square. Example: )
5.1.2 Marking
Replace the existing first paragraph with the following:

The SPDs shall be clearly marked with 5.1.1 items: a) the manufacturer's name or trademark,

b) manufacturing traceability, c) model number, and e) the maximum continuous operating

voltage. The marking material shall be wipe resistant and resistant to solvents normally used

in the SPD application. The location can be under a cover of the enclosure, but shall be easily

accessible by the end user (e.g. no tools). Any notes for special handling shall be included in

the documentation or on the packaging. Compliance is checked in accordance with 6.1.2.

6.2.1 Voltage-limiting tests

Add the following text immediately after the subheading 6.2.1 Voltage-limiting tests:

If not otherwise specified, for all tests where a power supply at U or at the maximum

interrupting voltage is required, the voltage tolerance for testing shall be +0/-5 %. When DC is

used the maximum ripple shall not exceed 5 %. When AC is used tests shall be performed at

50 Hz or 60 Hz, except if otherwise specified by the manufacturer.
At all voltage-limiting tests it is required to
