CLIMATIC FIELD DATA INCLUDING VALIDATION
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.

The main task of IEC technical committees is to prepare International Standards. However, a

technical committee may propose the publication of a technical report when it has collected

data of a different kind from that which is normally published as an International Standard, for

example "state of the art".

IEC/TR 62130, which is a technical report, has been prepared by IEC technical committee

104: Environmental conditions, classification and methods of test.
The text of this technical report is based on the following documents:
Enquiry draft Report on voting
104/572/DTR 104/577/RVC

Full information on the voting for the approval of this technical report can be found in the

report on voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.
A bilingual version of this publication may be issued at a later date.

indicates that it contains colours which are considered to be useful for the correct

understanding of its contents. Users should therefore print this document using a

colour printer.

CLIMATIC FIELD DATA INCLUDING VALIDATION
1 Scope

IEC/TR 62130, which is a technical report, provides traceable recommendations from

validated field data for updating IEC 60721-2-1.
2 Normative references

The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and

are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For

undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any
amendments) applies.

IEC 60721-1:1982, Classification of environmental conditions – Part 1: Environmental

parameters and their severities

IEC 60721-2-1:1982, Classification of environmental conditions – Part 2-1: Environmental

conditions appearing in nature – Temperature and humidity
Amendment 1:1987
3 Current IEC 60721-2-1 standard dealing with temperature and humidity

IEC 60721-2-1:1982 and its Amendment 1 (1987) give maps of climatic types with the

following parameters:

– mean value of the annual extreme daily mean values of temperature, humidity and highest

temperature with RH < 95 %;
– mean value of the annual extreme values of temperature, humidity and highest
temperature with RH ≥ 95 %;
– absolute extreme values of temperature, humidity and highest temperature with
RH ≥ 95 %.

Values of parameters and maps of statistical open-air climates in the geographical areas of

the world are given in Tables 1 to 3, and in Figures 1 and 2, respectively.

4 Task 1

The purpose of task 1 is to collect field data and to collate the validated data into a form

suitable for comparison with IEC 60721-2-1.

The field data was collected from two independent main sources. The data was organized,

arranged and analysed using a spreadsheet (Figure 3 and attachment). Annex A shows the

graphical data based on the data in Annex B. The validation process is described in details in

Clauses 5 and 6.

5 Task 2
5.1 General
The purpose of task 2 is to ensure traceability of the comparison process.
5.2 Description of the comparison process

The high level process for updating IEC 60721-2 standards [1] is given in Figure 4. The

process has four main phases. The traceability between measured field data and values given

in the standard can be achieved by following this process. Detailed actions that were carried

out in each phase are given in Table 4. To ensure full traceability, it is crucial that all process

phases are documented and that the sources used can be found in the future.

In Phase 1, it is decided what standards will be reviewed and possibly updated. In Phase 2,

data sources are identified and data is collected with certain attributes. Analysis of data and

comparison to current values in the particular standard takes place in Phase 3. The data

comparison process is a key phase to ensure traceability of data and it can vary depending on

which parameters are in question. This phase is described in detail in Clause 6. The output of

the process (Phase 4) helps the maintenance team decide how a standard should be updated

and/or modified. The decision can also be a proposal to leave the parameters in the standard

as they are.
