It is also applicable to insulators of similar design, used in substations. Applies also to string insulator units: -of the long rod type either with a clevis at both ends for coupling with a tongue, or with a socket at both ends for coupling with a pin ball -with external metal fittings -for use on overhead lines situated in slightly polluted areas, and the creepage distances given in Tables I and II have been established accordingly -and insulators of similar design, used in substations. This standard may be regarded as a provisional standard for insulators for d.c. overhead lines. Note -For general definitions and methods of tests see IEC 60383. -For dimensions of clevis and tongue couplings of string insulator units, see IEC 60471. -For dimensions of ball and socket couplings of string insulator units, see IEC 60120.

Is applicable to composite string insulators with a specified mechanical load (SML) of 40 kN and 70 kN for a.c. overhead distribution lines with a nominal voltage greater than 1 000 V and a frequency not greater than 100 Hz. It also applies to insulators of similar design used in substations or on electric traction lines.

Gives guidance for the interpretation of dissolved gas analysis (DGA) which has been developed for bushings, in service, where the main insulation (generally paper) is impregnated with mineral insulating oil according to IEC 60296. Is applicable to oil-filled and impregnated paper bushings in service. The contents of the corrigendum of January 2003 have been included in this copy.

IEC 62223:2009 specifies terms defined in standards that fall under the scope of technical committee TC 36: Insulators. It covers terms that can be found in IEC 60050-471 as well as terms not appropriate for inclusion in IEC 60050-471 but used widely in the standards of IEC TC 36. IEC 60050-471 is not intended to cover all the terms used in the various IEC standards but provides rather a general purpose vocabulary giving the basic terms and reference terms to be used by all technical committees. This glossary is intended to harmonize terms not listed in IEC 60050-471 but used in the publications of committee TC 36.
