NOTE 1: (Air temperature, low).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product specification). If a cold start up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a cold start up temperature, but it may be modified (within the class characteristic severity range) by the product specification. In this case, the cold start up test shall commence once low temperature stability is achieved.

NOTE 2: (Air temperature, high).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product specification). If two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar and heat radiation or the equipment is ventilated (natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar and/or heat radiation. If a high temperature start up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a high start up temperature, but it may be modified (within the class characteristic severity range) by the product specification. In this case, the high temperature start up test shall commence once high temperature stability is achieved.

NOTE 3: (Air temperature, change).

The change of temperature test is normally used to check design tolerance. IEC 60068-2-14 [7] Test Nb shall be used. For change of temperature of 0,5 °C/min, the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min. NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).

There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter. NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab. NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level. SIST EN 300 019-2-3 V2.4.1:2016

The effect of wind driven rain outside to the equipment in the weatherprotected or partly weatherprotected locations is included in IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db. No test is recommended. NOTE 10: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for components and materials. NOTE 11: (Radiation, heat).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect. NOTE 12: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document. NOTE 13: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This condition should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials.

The severities are given as peak values. NOTE 2: (Shocks). The values for test severity are not specified in IEC 60068-2 series. The severities are given as peak values. The energy content and the SRS of the shock given as test severity have been considered more appropriate than that given by the characteristic severity. Equipment under test shall be mounted in the "in use" position. The equipment function shall be monitored throughout the test.

For change of temperature of 0,5 °C/min, the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min. NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).

There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter. NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab. NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level. NOTE 9: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for components and materials. NOTE 10: (Radiation, heat).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect. NOTE 11: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document. NOTE 12: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This condition should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials. NOTE 13: (Flora, fauna).

The characteristic severity should be considered when choosing components and materials.

NOTE 1: (Air temperature, low).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product

specification). If a cold start up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a cold start up temperature, but it may be modified (within the

class characteristic severity range) by the product specification. In this case, the cold start up test shall commence once low temperature stability is

achieved.
NOTE 2: (Air temperature, high).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product

specification). If two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar and heat radiation or the

equipment is ventilated (natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar and/or heat radiation. If a high temperature start

up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a high start up temperature, but it may be modified (within the class characteristic severity

range) by the product specification. In this case, the high temperature start up test shall commence once high temperature stability is achieved.

NOTE 3: (Air temperature, change).

The change of temperature test is normally used to check design tolerance. IEC 60068-2-14 [7] Test Nb shall be used. For change of temperature of

0,5 °C/min, the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min.

NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).
There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter.
NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab.

NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 9: (Water, rain).

The effect of wind driven rain outside to the equipment in the weatherprotected or partly weatherprotected locations is included in IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test

Db. No test is recommended.
NOTE 10: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for

components and materials.
NOTE 11: (Radiation, heat).
The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect.
NOTE 12: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when

choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document.

NOTE 13: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This condition

should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials.

severity
NOTE 1: (Air temperature, low).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product

specification). If a cold start up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a cold start up temperature, but it may be modified

(within the class characteristic severity range) by the product specification. In this case, the cold start up test shall commence once low

temperature stability is achieved.
NOTE 2: (Air temperature, high).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product

specification). If two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar and heat radiation

or the equipment is ventilated (natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar and/or heat radiation. If a high

temperature start up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a high start up temperature, but it may be modified (within the

class characteristic severity range) by the product specification. In this case, the high temperature start up test shall commence once high

temperature stability is achieved.
NOTE 3: (Air temperature, change).

The change of temperature test is normally used to check design tolerance. IEC 60068-2-14 [7] Test Nb shall be used. For change of temperature

of 0,5 °C/min, the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min.

NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).
There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter.
NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab.

NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 9: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for

components and materials.
NOTE 10: (Radiation, heat).
The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect.
NOTE 11: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when

choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document.

NOTE 12: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This

condition should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials.

NOTE 13: (Flora, fauna).

The characteristic severity should be considered when choosing components and materials.

NOTE 1: (Air temperature, low).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product

specification). If a cold start up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a cold start up temperature, but it may be modified (within the

class characteristic severity range) by the product specification. In this case, the cold start up test shall commence once low temperature stability is

achieved.
NOTE 2: (Air temperature, high).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product

specification). If two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar and heat radiation or the

equipment is ventilated (natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar and/or heat radiation. If a high temperature start

up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a high start up temperature, but it may be modified (within the class characteristic severity

range) by the product specification. In this case, the high temperature start up test shall commence once high temperature stability is achieved.

NOTE 3: (Air temperature, change).

The change of temperature test is normally used to check design tolerance. IEC 60068-2-14 [7] Test Nb shall be used. For change of temperature of

0,5 °C/min, the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min.

NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).
There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter.
NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab.

NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 9: (Water, rain).

The effect of wind driven rain outside to the equipment in the weatherprotected or partly weatherprotected locations is included in IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test

Db. No test is recommended.
NOTE 10: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for

components and materials.
NOTE 11: (Radiation, heat).
The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect.
NOTE 12: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when

choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document.

NOTE 13: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This condition

should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials.

severity
NOTE 1: (Air temperature, low).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product

specification). If a cold start up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a cold start up temperature, but it may be modified

(within the class characteristic severity range) by the product specification. In this case, the cold start up test shall commence once low

temperature stability is achieved.
NOTE 2: (Air temperature, high).

The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product

specification). If two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar and heat radiation

or the equipment is ventilated (natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar and/or heat radiation. If a high

temperature start up test is performed, the characteristic severity should be used as a high start up temperature, but it may be modified (within the

class characteristic severity range) by the product specification. In this case, the high temperature start up test shall commence once high

temperature stability is achieved.
NOTE 3: (Air temperature, change).

The change of temperature test is normally used to check design tolerance. IEC 60068-2-14 [7] Test Nb shall be used. For change of temperature

of 0,5 °C/min, the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min.

NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).
There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter.
NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab.

NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 9: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for

components and materials.
NOTE 10: (Radiation, heat).
The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect.
NOTE 11: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when

choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document.

NOTE 12: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This

condition should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials.

NOTE 13: (Flora, fauna).

The characteristic severity should be considered when choosing components and materials.
