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).

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).

If two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar and heat radiation or the equipment is ventilated

(natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar and/or heat 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).

The change of temperature test is normally used to check design tolerance. IEC 60068-2-14 [7] Test Nb shall be used. For change of temperature of 0,5 °C/min,

the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min.

NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).
There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter.
NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab.

NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 9: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for components

and materials.
NOTE 10: (Radiation, heat).
The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect.
NOTE 11: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing

components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document.
NOTE 12: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This condition should

be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials.

The values for test severity are not specified in IEC 60068-2 series. The severities are given as peak values. The energy content and the SRS of the shock given

as test severity have been considered more appropriate than that given by the characteristic severity.Equipment under test shall be mounted in the "in use"

position. The equipment function shall be monitored throughout the test.

Specification T 3.1E: Temperature-controlled locations - exceptional operating conditions.

The specification in table 3 shall apply to permanently temperature-controlled locations where humidity is usually not controlled. The reference class is the same as for T 3.1,

but with extended temperature and humidity ranges.

Performance criterion A:

The equipment shall function according to the manufacturer specifications before, during and after the tests. No

degradation of performance or loss of function is allowed below the performance level specified by the manufacturer

when the equipment is used as intended. If the minimum performance level is not specified by the manufacturer, then

this may be deduced from the product description and documentation and what the user may reasonably expect from the

equipment if used as intended.
Performance criterion B:

The equipment shall function according to the manufacturer specifications before and after the tests. During the test it is

not required to monitor the equipment functionality. No degradation of performance or loss of function is allowed

below the performance level specified by the manufacturer when the equipment is used as intended. If the minimum

performance level is not specified by the manufacturer, then this may be deduced from the product description and

documentation and what the user may reasonably expect from the equipment if used as intended.

Performance criterion C:

The equipment shall function according to the manufacturer specifications before and after the tests. No degradation of

performance or loss of function is allowed below the performance level specified by the manufacturer when the

equipment is used as intended. If the minimum performance level is not specified by the manufacturer, then this may be

deduced from the product description and documentation and what the user may reasonably expect from the equipment

if used as intended.During the application of the test, temporary loss of function is allowed but after the test the

equipment shall restore to the normal functionality without replacement of components, manual rebooting or human

intervention. The equipment shall sustain the test without permanent structural or mechanical damage.

Performance criterion D:

This performance criterion applies to the enclosure of the equipment. No corrosion traces (e.g. rust) or deterioration of

the enclosure shall occur at the end of the test.

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).

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).

If two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar and heat radiation or the equipment is ventilated

(natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar and/or heat 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).

The change of temperature test is normally used to check design tolerance. IEC 60068-2-14 [7] Test Nb shall be used. For change of temperature of 0,5 °C/min,

the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min.

NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).
There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter.
NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab.

NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 9: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for components

and materials.
NOTE 10: (Radiation, heat).
The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect.
NOTE 11: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing

components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document.
NOTE 12: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This condition should

be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials.

The values for test severity are not specified in IEC 60068-2 series. The severities are given as peak values. The energy content and the SRS of the shock given

as test severity have been considered more appropriate than that given by the characteristic severity.Equipment under test shall be mounted in the "in use"

position. The equipment function shall be monitored throughout the test.

Specification T 3.1E: Temperature-controlled locations - exceptional operating conditions.

The specification in table 3 shall apply to permanently temperature-controlled locations where humidity is usually not controlled. The reference class is the same as for T 3.1,

but with extended temperature and humidity ranges.

4.2 Performance criteria

The following performance criteria shall apply in tests defined by the present document.

Performance criterion A:

The equipment shall function according to the manufacturer specifications before, during and after the tests. No

degradation of performance or loss of function is allowed below the performance level specified by the manufacturer

when the equipment is used as intended. If the minimum performance level is not specified by the manufacturer, then

this may be deduced from the product description and documentation and what the user may reasonably expect from the

equipment if used as intended.
Performance criterion B:

The equipment shall function according to the manufacturer specifications before and after the tests. During the test it is

not required to monitor the equipment functionality. No degradation of performance or loss of function is allowed

below the performance level specified by the manufacturer when the equipment is used as intended. If the minimum

performance level is not specified by the manufacturer, then this may be deduced from the product description and

documentation and what the user may reasonably expect from the equipment if used as intended.

Performance criterion C:

The equipment shall function according to the manufacturer specifications before and after the tests. No degradation of

performance or loss of function is allowed below the performance level specified by the manufacturer when the

equipment is used as intended. If the minimum performance level is not specified by the manufacturer, then this may be

deduced from the product description and documentation and what the user may reasonably expect from the equipment

if used as intended.During the application of the test, temporary loss of function is allowed but after the test the

equipment shall restore to the normal functionality without replacement of components, manual rebooting or human

intervention. The equipment shall sustain the test without permanent structural or mechanical damage.

Performance criterion D:

This performance criterion applies to the enclosure of the equipment. No corrosion traces (e.g. rust) or deterioration of

the enclosure shall occur at the end of the test.

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).

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).

If two test temperatures are given, the lower test temperature applies if the equipment is protected against solar and heat radiation or the equipment is ventilated

(natural or forced). The higher test temperature includes the heating effects of solar and/or heat 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).

The change of temperature test is normally used to check design tolerance. IEC 60068-2-14 [7] Test Nb shall be used. For change of temperature of 0,5 °C/min,

the cooling gradient may be reduced to 0,2 °C/min where test chamber restrictions preclude a gradient of 0,5 °C/min.

NOTE 4: (Relative humidity, low).
There is no IEC 60068-2 series test method for this parameter.
NOTE 5: (Humidity, relative, high).

IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 6: (Condensation).

IEC 60068-2-30 [9] Test Db shall be used with test values not higher than climatogram limits for this class.

NOTE 7: (Humidity, absolute, high).

This effect is considered to be partly included in the damp heat test IEC 60068-2-78 [8] Test Cab.

NOTE 8: (Air pressure, low and high).

No test is recommended for normal applications, because the effect of air pressure is evaluated at the component level.

NOTE 9: (Radiation, solar).

The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect of solar radiation. Photochemical tests can be made separately for components

and materials.
NOTE 10: (Radiation, heat).
The higher test temperature as described in note 2 includes the heating effect.
NOTE 11: (Chemically active substances).

The characteristic severities are given as mean/maximum values. These severities should be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing

components and materials. No test is recommended in the present document.
NOTE 12: (Mechanically active substances).

The characteristic severities are much lower than lowest test severity in IEC 60068-2-68 [14] Test L and therefore no test is recommended. This condition should

be considered when designing the equipment and when choosing components and materials.

The values for test severity are not specified in IEC 60068-2 series. The severities are given as peak values. The energy content and the SRS of the shock given

as test severity have been considered more appropriate than that given by the characteristic severity.Equipment under test shall be mounted in the "in use"

position. The equipment function shall be monitored throughout the test.

Specification T 3.1E: Temperature-controlled locations - exceptional operating conditions.

The specification in table 3 shall apply to permanently temperature-controlled locations where humidity is usually not controlled. The reference class is the same as for T 3.1,

but with extended temperature and humidity ranges.
