The equipment under test shall remain operational throughout this test (without any damage or deterioration of performance, according to product specification). Two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar irradiation. The higher test temperature includes heat irradiation emitted from the equipment. 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). Two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar radiation or the equipment is ventilated (natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar 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). This test is intended for specimen with large thermal time constant. For equipment where the rapid change of temperature of the surface has a significant effect on internal components, the values of the change of temperature up to 5 °C/min can be applied (e.g. heat sinks). NOTE 4: (Humidity, relative high). IEC 60068-2-78 [16] Test Cab shall be used with test severities not higher than climatogram limits for this class. NOTE 5: (Condensation). IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test severities not higher than climatogram limits for this class. NOTE 6: (Humidity, absolute, high). This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [16] Test Cab. NOTE 7: (Air pressure, low and high). No test shall be used for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level. NOTE 8: There is no IEC 60068-2 [i.3] series test for this parameter. NOTE 9: (Water, rain). IEC 60068-2-18 [15] Test Rb method 1 has been chosen even if it does not imitate normal rain. It is a simple hand held shower test, easy to perform and can demonstrate that the specimen design is adequately toleranced to survive this condition. The cooling effect of the low temperature of the rain is included in IEC 60068-2-14 [8] Test Nb. Two durations are given, whichever is the greatest should be chosen. NOTE 10: (Water, other sources). No test is recommended because the effect is already included in IEC 60068-2-18 [15] Test Rb. NOTE 11: (Radiation). The heating effect of solar radiation is included in the higher test temperature in IEC 60068-2-2 [7] Test Bb as described in note 2. Photochemical tests can be made separately for component and materials. NOTE 12: (Chemically active substances). Characteristic severities are mean/maximum values. The characteristic severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document, except for the mechanical enclosures, where the salt mist test is required to be performed. The execution of this test can be performed on the entire enclosure or subparts of the enclosure if the results are not affected. NOTE 13: (Mechanically active substances). The characteristic severities are much lower than the lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [i.2] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This condition should be considered when designing the equipment and choosing components and materials.

NOTE 14: (Flora and fauna). The characteristic severities should be considered when choosing components and materials.

severity 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). Two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar

irradiation. The higher test temperature includes heat irradiation emitted from the equipment. 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). Two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar

radiation or the equipment is ventilated (natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar 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). This test is intended for specimen with large thermal time constant. For equipment where the rapid change of temperature

of the surface has a significant effect on internal components, the values of the change of temperature up to 5 °C/min can be applied (e.g. heat sinks).

NOTE 4: (Humidity, relative high). IEC 60068-2-78 [16] Test Cab shall be used with test severities not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 5: (Condensation). IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test severities not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Humidity, absolute, high). This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [16] Test Cab.

NOTE 7: (Air pressure, low and high). No test shall be used for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 8: There is no IEC 60068-2 [i.3] series test for this parameter.

NOTE 9: (Water, rain). IEC 60068-2-18 [15] Test Rb method 1 has been chosen even if it does not imitate normal rain. It is a simple hand held shower test,

easy to perform and can demonstrate that the specimen design is adequately toleranced to survive this condition. The cooling effect of the low

temperature of the rain is included in IEC 60068-2-14 [8] Test Nb. Two durations are given, whichever is the greatest should be chosen.

NOTE 10: (Water, other sources). No test is recommended because the effect is already included in IEC 60068-2-18 [15] Test Rb.

NOTE 11: (Radiation). The heating effect of solar radiation is included in the higher test temperature in IEC 60068-2-2 [7] Test Bb as described in note 2.

Photochemical tests can be made separately for component and materials.

NOTE 12: (Chemically active substances). Characteristic severities are mean/maximum values. The characteristic severities should be considered when

designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document, except for the mechanical

enclosures, where the salt mist test is required to be performed. The execution of this test can be performed on the entire enclosure or subparts of the

enclosure if the results are not affected.

NOTE 13: (Mechanically active substances). The characteristic severities are much lower than the lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [i.2] Test L and

therefore no test is recommended. This condition should be considered when designing the equipment and choosing components and materials.

NOTE 14: (Flora and fauna). The characteristic severities should be considered when choosing components and materials.

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). This test is intended for specimen with large thermal time constant. For equipment where the rapid change of temperature of the surface

has a significant effect on internal components, the values of the change of temperature up to 5 °C/min can be applied (e.g. heat sinks).

NOTE 4: (Humidity, relative high). IEC 60068-2-78 [16] Test Cab is shall be used with test severities not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 5: (Condensation). IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test severities not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Humidity, absolute, high). This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [16] Test Cab.

NOTE 7: (Air pressure, low and high). No test shall be used for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 8: There is no IEC 60068-2 [i.3] series test for this parameter.

NOTE 9: (Water, rain). IEC 60068-2-18 [15] Test Rb method 1 has been chosen even if it does not imitate normal rain. It is a simple hand held shower test, easy to perform and

can demonstrate that the specimen design is adequately toleranced to survive this condition. The cooling effect of the low temperature of the rain is included in

IEC 60068-2-14 [8] Test Nb. Two durations are given, whichever is the greatest should be chosen.

NOTE 10: (Water, other sources). No test is recommended because the effect is already included in IEC 60068-2-18 [15] Test Rb.

NOTE 11: (Radiation). The heating effect of solar radiation is included in the higher test temperature in IEC 60068-2-2 [7] Test Bb as described in note 2. Photochemical tests

can be made separately for component and materials.

NOTE 12: (Chemically active substances). Characteristic severities are mean/maximum values. The characteristic severities should be considered when designing the

equipment and when choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document, except for the mechanical enclosures, where the salt

mist test is required to be performed. The execution of this test can be performed on the entire enclosure or subparts of the enclosure if the results are not affected.

NOTE 13: (Mechanically active substances). The characteristic severities are much lower than the lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [i.2] Test L and therefore no test is

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

NOTE 14: (Flora and fauna). The characteristic severities should be considered 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). Two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar irradiation. The higher test

temperature includes heat irradiation emitted from the equipment. 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). Two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar radiation or the equipment is

ventilated (natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar 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). This test is intended for specimen with large thermal time constant. For equipment where the rapid change of temperature of the surface

has a significant effect on internal components, the values of the change of temperature up to 5 °C/min can be applied (e.g. heat sinks).

NOTE 4: (Humidity, relative high). IEC 60068-2-78 [16] Test Cab is shall be used with test severities not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 5: (Condensation). IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test severities not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Humidity, absolute, high). This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [16] Test Cab.

NOTE 7: (Air pressure, low and high). No test shall be used for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 8: There is no IEC 60068-2 [i.3] series test for this parameter.

NOTE 9: (Water, rain). IEC 60068-2-18 [15] Test Rb method 1 has been chosen even if it does not imitate normal rain. It is a simple hand held shower test, easy to perform and

can demonstrate that the specimen design is adequately toleranced to survive this condition. The cooling effect of the low temperature of the rain is included in

IEC 60068-2-14 [8] Test Nb. Two durations are given, whichever is the greatest should be chosen.

NOTE 10: (Water, other sources). No test is recommended because the effect is already included in IEC 60068-2-18 [15] Test Rb.

NOTE 11: (Radiation). The heating effect of solar radiation is included in the higher test temperature in IEC 60068-2-2 [7] Test Bb as described in note 2. Photochemical tests

can be made separately for component and materials.

NOTE 12: (Chemically active substances). Characteristic severities are mean/maximum values. The characteristic severities should be considered when designing the

equipment and when choosing components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document, except for the mechanical enclosures, where the salt

mist test is required to be performed. The execution of this test can be performed on the entire enclosure or subparts of the enclosure if the results are not affected.

NOTE 13: (Mechanically active substances). The characteristic severities are much lower than the lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [i.2] Test L and therefore no test is

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

NOTE 14: (Flora and fauna). The characteristic severities should be considered when choosing components and materials.
