Electrical safety in low voltage distribution systems up to 1 000 v a.c. And 1 500 v d.c. - Equipment for testing, measuring or monitoring of protective measures - Part 9: Equipment for insulation fault location in IT systems (IEC 61557-9:2014)

This part of IEC 61557 specifies the requirements for the insulation fault location system
(IFLS) which localizes insulation faults in any part of the system in unearthed IT a.c. systems
and unearthed IT a.c. systems with galvanically connected d.c. circuits having nominal
voltages up to 1 000 V a.c., as well as in unearthed IT d.c. systems with voltages up to
1 500 V d.c., independent of the measuring principle.
IT systems are described in IEC 60364-4-41 amongst other literature. Additional data for a
selection of devices in other standards should be noted.
NOTE Further information on insulation fault location can be found in the following standards:
IEC 60364-4-41:2005, 411.6, and IEC 60364-5-53:2001, 531.3.

Elektrische Sicherheit in Niederspannungsnetzen bis AC 1 000 V und DC 1 500 V - Geräte zum Prüfen, Messen oder Überwachen von Schutzmaßnahmen - Teil 9: Einrichtungen zur Isolationsfehlersuche in IT-Systemen (IEC 61557-9:2014)

Sécurité électrique dans les réseaux de distribution basse tension de 1 000 V c.a. et 1 500 V c.c - Dispositifs de contrôle, de mesure ou de surveillance de mesures de protection - Partie 9: Dispositifs de localisation de défauts d'isolement pour réseaux IT (IEC 61557-9:2014)

L'IEC 61557-9:2014 spécifie les exigences applicables aux dispositifs de localisation de défauts d'isolement (DLD) qui, indépendamment du principe de mesure, peuvent localiser les défauts d'isolement des parties de réseaux IT à courant alternatif non mis à la terre et des réseaux IT à courant alternatif non mis à la terre comprenant des circuits à courant continu reliés galvaniquement dont les tensions nominales sont au plus égales à 1 000 V en courant alternatif, et de réseaux IT à courant continu non mis à la terre dont les tensions sont au plus égales à 1 500 V en courant continu. Les réseaux IT sont décrits entre autres dans l'IEC 60364-4-41. Il convient de noter que, pour le choix des appareils, des indications supplémentaires sont données dans d'autres normes. Cette troisième édition annule et remplace la deuxième édition parue en 2009. Elle constitue une révision technique qui inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: - le domaine d'application, les références normatives, les termes et définitions ont été complétés; - énumération et explication des abréviations; - les exigences de marquage, les instructions de fonctionnement ont été révisées; - définition des fonctions obligatoires et facultatives et adaptation de leur terminologie à l'IEC 61557-15; - ajout d'exigences mécaniques; - l'Article 6 "Essais" a été révisé; - et des nouveaux Tableaux ont été ajoutés.

Električna varnost v nizkonapetostnih razdelilnih sistemih za izmenične napetosti do 1 kV in enosmerne napetosti do 1,5 kV - Oprema za preskušanje, merjenje ali nadzorovanje zaščitnih ukrepov - 9. del: Oprema za ugotavljanje mesta izolacijske okvare v IT-sistemih (IEC 61557-9:2014)

Ta del standarda IEC 61557 določa zahteve za sistem za ugotavljanje mesta izolacijske okvare (IFLS), ki ugotovi mesto izolacijskih okvar v katerem koli delu sistema pri neozemljenih IT sistemih na izmenični tok, neozemljenih IT-sistemih na izmenični tok z galvansko povezanimi tokokrogi enosmernega toka z nominalnimi vrednostmi izmenične napetosti do 1000 V ter neozemljenih IT-sistemih na enosmerni tok z vrednostmi enosmerne napetosti do 1500 V, neodvisno od principa merjenja.
IT-sistemi so med drugim opisani tudi v standardu IEC 60364-4-41. Upoštevali naj bi dodatne podatke za izbiro naprav v drugih standardih.
OPOMBA: več informacij o ugotavljanju mesta izolacijske okvare je mogoče najti v teh standardih: IEC 60364-4-41:2005, 411.6 in IEC 60364-5-53:2001, 531.3.

Part 9: Equipment for insulation fault location in IT systems
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 61557-9 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 85:

Measuring equipment for electrical and electromagnetic quantities.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2009. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:

a) the scope, normative references, terms and definitions have been complemented;

b) abbreviations are listed and explained;
c) requirements, marking and operating instructions have been revised;

d) mandatory and optional functions have been defined and their terminology has been

adapted to IEC 61557-15;

ELECTRICAL SAFETY IN LOW VOLTAGE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS UP
TO 1 000 V AC AND 1 500 V DC – EQUIPMENT FOR TESTING, MEASURING
OR MONITORING OF PROTECTIVE MEASURES –
Part 9: Equipment for insulation fault location in IT systems
1 Scope

This part of IEC 61557 specifies the requirements for the insulation fault location system

(IFLS) which localizes insulation faults in any part of the system in unearthed IT a.c. systems

and unearthed IT a.c. systems with galvanically connected d.c. circuits having nominal

voltages up to 1 000 V a.c., as well as in unearthed IT d.c. systems with voltages up to

1 500 V d.c., independent of the measuring principle.

IT systems are described in IEC 60364-4-41 amongst other literature. Additional data for a

selection of devices in other standards should be noted.

NOTE Further information on insulation fault location can be found in the following standards:

IEC 60364-4-41:2005, 411.6, and IEC 60364-5-53:2001, 531.3.
