Classes of Insulation. IEC. Thermal class[3]. Old IEC. Thermal Electrotechnical Commission Standard Electrical Insulation- Thermal. electric instruments. Under such circumstances, IEC1) issued a recommendation on the temperature classes of electric insulators, followed by IEC Publication. Electrical insulation – Thermal classification – IEC Gives guidance on the application of international standards in assigning a thermal class to.

Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. What is an Electrical Insulating Material, and how is it evaluated? As the voice of the U. In large machines, different systems may be used according to the predicted temperature rise of the machine; for example, in large hydroelectric generators, stator windings may be Class B but the more difficult to cool rotor winding may be Class F.

Modern editions of standards are proscriptive, only indicating that the insulation system must provide acceptable life at the specified temperature rise.

Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. It establishes the criteria for evaluating the thermal endurance of either electrical insulating materials EIM or electrical insulation systems EIS. Silicone elastomers, and Class inorganic materials with high-temperature binders, or other materials with usable lifetime at this temperature.

Need more than one copy? In addition, UL Knowledge Services reserves the right to change, reschedule or cancel any workshop at any time. Inorganic materials such as mica, glass fibers, asbestoswith high-temperature binders, or others with usable lifetime at this temperature.

Electrical machines are usually designed with an average temperature below the rated hot-spot temperature to allow for acceptable life. Retrieved from ” https: Workshops – Latin America.

Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. Older editions of standards listed materials to be used for the various temperature classes. Get your critical conformity assessment questions answered by standards experts from UL, the leaders in standards development.

Participants should have a basic understanding of UL polymeric material requirements, especially those related to the use of insulation systems. UL Knowledge Services accepts the following forms of payment for registration: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Fink and Wayne H. There are five categories of insulation used by the three insulagion classes of equipment; functional, basic, supplementary, double and reinforced.

Already Subscribed to this document. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. This International Standard now distinguishes between thermal classes for electrical insulation systems and electrical insulating materials. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. It also establishes the procedure for assigning thermal classes.


As for Class B, and including teflon. This standard is applicable where the thermal factor is the dominant ageing factor. UL Knowledge Services workshops are designed for and intended to serve individuals using and relying upon UL services.

Polyurethane, epoxy resins, polyethylene terephthalate, and other materials that have shown usable lifetime at this temperature.

Insulation system

The topics covered in this workshop are: UL Knowledge Services reserves the right to limit workshop attendance strictly to the foregoing. Organic materials such as cottonsilkpapersome synthetic fibers [6]. Click here for terms and conditions The electrical insulation system is sometimes referred to as insulation class or thermal classification.

Can a specific application utilize a material 6085 functions as both? Participants should also possess a general understanding of insulation systems as they are used in motors, coils, and valves.

We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. NEMA standards Electrical safety. UL, the industry leader in standards development, is available to help you understand the requirements in this new standard. Add to Alert PDF.

The electrical insulation system for wires used in generatorselectric motorstransformersand other wire-wound electrical components is divided into different classes by temperature and temperature rise.
