Live working - Voltage detectors -- Part 5: Voltage detecting systems (VDS)

Is applicable to voltage detecting systems that are single-pole and are capacitively-coupled to live parts. They are used to detect the presence or absence of operating voltage on a.c. electrical systems for voltages from 1 kV to 52 kV, and for frequencies from 16 2/3 Hz to 60 Hz. This standard is also applicable to phase comparators designed for voltage detecting systems.

61243-5 © IEC:1997– 7 –INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION___________LIVE WORKING – VOLTAGE DETECTORS –Part 5 : Voltage detecting systems (VDS)FOREWORD1)The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is a worldwide organization for standardizationcomprising all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of the IEC is topromote international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronicfields. To this end and in addition to other activities, the IEC publishes International Standards. Theirpreparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealtwith may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizationsliaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. The IEC collaborates closely with the InternationalOrganization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between thetwo organizations.2)The formal decisions or agreements of the IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, aninternational consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representationfrom all interested National Committees.3)The documents produced have the form of recommendations for international use and are published in theform of standards, technical reports or guides and they are accepted by the National Committees in thatsense.4)In order to promote international unification, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC InternationalStandards transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional standards. Anydivergence between the IEC Standard and the corresponding national or regional standard shall be clearlyindicated in the latter.5)The IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for anyequipment declared to be in conformity with one of its standards.6)Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be thesubject of patent rights. The IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.International Standard IEC 61243-5 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 78: Toolsfor live working.The text of this standard is based on the following documents:FDISReport on voting78/203/FDIS78/217/RVDFull information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report onvoting indicated in the above table.Annexes A, B and C form an integral part of this standard.Annexes D, E and F are for information only.SIST EN 61243-5:2002

61243-5 © IEC:1997– 9 –INTRODUCTIONCapacitive voltage detecting systems have already been used for a long time, especially onhermetically enclosed gas insulated switchgear in the medium voltage range. At the beginningthis technique was used only for information about the voltage. With this part of IEC 61243, it isthe intention to have the same level of safety for detection of the absence or presence ofvoltage as with conventional voltage detectors.SIST EN 61243-5:2002

61243-5 © IEC:1997– 11 –LIVE WORKING – VOLTAGE DETECTORS –Part 5 : Voltage detecting systems (VDS)1 ScopeThis part of IEC 61243 is applicable to voltage detecting systems that are single-pole and arecapacitively-coupled to live parts. They are used to detect the presence or absence ofoperating voltage on a.c. electrical systems for voltages from 1 kV to 52 kV, and forfrequencies from 162/3 Hz to 60 Hz.This standard is also applicable to phase comparators designed for voltage detecting systems.EMC tests are not included as, at the present time, not enough information about minimumrequirements is available.NOTES1Except where specified otherwise, all the voltages defined in this standard refer to values of phase-to-phasevoltages of three-phase systems. In other systems, the applicable phase-to-phase or phase-to-earth voltagesare used to determine the operating voltage.2Voltage detecting systems based on fundamentally different principles (for example optical systems,resistive coupling elements) are not covered in this standard but should meet the requirements of this standardwhere applicable.3For frequencies differing from 50 Hz, the values Cs and Ut according to table 1 are valid. The thresholdvalues for It have to be changed accordingly.4If in an electrical installation it is verified that the installation is dead by other means than using a voltagedetecting system, a different device which can be termed voltage indicating system may be used for serviceinformation about the voltage state with reduced requirements concerning tests for clear and reliable indication.If so, this should be clearly stated and made explicit by the manufacturer (see annex F for further details).2 Normative referencesThe following normative documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text,constitute provisions of this part of IEC 61243. At the time of publication, the editions indicatedwere valid. All normative documents are subject to revision, and parties to agreements basedon this part of IEC 61243 are encouraged to investigate the possibility of applying the mostrecent editions of the normative documents indicated below.
