Ils ont pour objectif principal de mesurer la tension sur un réseau sous tension. Ils peuvent être tenus à la main en utilisation normale. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2012. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: - Le domaine d'application a été réduit aux multimètres portatifs. Les voltmètres et les pinces multimétriques ont été supprimés. Ils sont traités respectivement par l'IEC 61010­2­030 et l'IEC 61010-2-032. Les définitions correspondantes ont été supprimées. - Le 4.4.2.101 a été intégré à l'Article 102. - Les distances d'isolement et les lignes de fuite applicables aux emplacements humides et aux bornes des circuits de mesure dont la tension alternative est supérieure à 1 000 V ou la tension continue est supérieure à 1 414 V ont été spécifiées. - Les exigences pour "Circuits ou composants utilisés comme limiteurs de surtensions dans les circuits de mesure utilisés sur un RESEAU" ont été supprimées. Le paragraphe 14.102 a été renuméroté 14.101. - Des références à l'IEC 61010-031 pour les sondes équipées et à l'IEC 61010-2-032 pour les capteurs de courant ont été ajoutées. - Des exigences relatives à la protection des circuits de mesure contre les surtensions du réseau ont été ajoutées. - L'Article 102 a été reformulé. - Des exigences concernant les circuits de mesure entre 1 000 V et 3 000 V ont été ajoutées. - Une Annexe CC informative relative aux dimensions des bornes "banane" de 4 mm a été ajoutée. - Un organigramme de l'isolation selon le type de circuit a été ajouté dans une nouvelle Annexe DD.

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 IEC 61010-2-033 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 66:

Safety of measuring, control and laboratory equipment.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2012. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:

a) The scope has been reduced to hand-held multimeters. Voltmeters and clamp multimeters

have been removed. They are addressed respectively by IEC 61010-2-030 and
IEC 61010-2-032. The relevant definitions have been removed.
b) Subclause 4.4.2.101 has been relocated into Clause 102.

5.1.5.101 Measuring circuit

Measuring circuit TERMINALS shall be marked with the value of the RATED voltage to earth.

Each pair or set of measuring circuit TERMINALS that are intended to be used together shall be

marked with the value of the RATED voltage or the RATED current as applicable to the pair or

set of TERMINALS.

Measuring circuit TERMINALS are usually arranged in pairs or sets. Each pair or set of

TERMINALS may have a RATED voltage or a RATED current, or both, within that set, and each

individual TERMINAL will have a RATED voltage to earth. For some hand-held multimeters, the

RATED voltage between TERMINALS may be different from the RATED voltage to earth. Markings

shall be clear to avoid misunderstanding.
