1 Scope

1.1

This Standard specifies the electrical, mechanical, dimensional characteristics, test methods and acceptance criteria for solid core and cavity core ceramic and glass type station post insulators for outdoor service in electrical installations or equipment operating with a rated voltage greater than 1000 V and a rated frequency not greater than 100 Hz.

Note: Hollow core insulators are not part of this standard

1.2

This Standard covers insulators intended primarily for use as support or operating elements in switching equipment, or as bus bar or other equipment supports in station.

Note: The electrical and mechanical characteristics for direct current insulators are similar to the comparable characteristics for alternating current insulators. However, due to the unidirectional voltage stress, special attention needs to be paid to the pollution susceptibility and to the location of insulators in a direct current scheme.

1.3  

The values given in SI (metric) units are the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.4  

In CSA Standards, “shall “is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should“ is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; “may“ is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard; and “can“ is used to express possibility or capability.

1 Scope

1.1  

This Standard specifies the electrical, mechanical, dimensional characteristics, test methods and acceptance criteria for composite station post insulators for outdoor service, operating at nominal voltages greater than 1000 V and frequency not greater than 100 Hz. Station post insulators are mainly used as support or operating elements in switching equipment, or as bus bar or other equipment supports. Station post insulators are subjected to tensile, cantilever, torsional, and compressive loads..

1.2  

This Standard deals with composite insulators having a solid core with metal fittings and housing with sheds. The core has resin-impregnated glass fibres and is protected with a UV resistive coating. The housing with sheds consists of elastomers (e.g., silicone, ethylene propylene). The metal fittings are aluminum, steel, or iron.

1.3  

In CSA standards, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Scope:

This part of IEC 60079, which is a technical specification, specifies requirements for the design, construction, assembly, testing, inspection, marking, documenting and assessment of equipment assemblies for use in explosive atmospheres under the responsibility of the manufacturer of the equipment assembly.

The requirements of this document apply to individual items according to the IEC 60079 series or ISO 80079 series that comprise the assembly and that have individual certificates.

These individual items are then integrated as part of the equipment assembly. Alsoincluded are requirements to address aspects for the assembly which may be beyondthe certificates of the individual items forming the assembly.

The scope of this document includes assessment of the additional requirements forassemblies for hazardous areas and does not include requirements for non-hazardousareas.

It is assumed that compliance with other electrical or mechanical requirements thatare applicable for non-hazardous areas will be verified by either the same or differentparty in addition to the  requirements of this document.

This document does not apply to:

– equipment which is covered, in its entirety, by one or more IEC 60079 and ISO 80079 equipment types of protection;

– pressurized rooms, “p”, in accordance with IEC 60079-13, artificial ventilation for the protection of analyzer(s) houses in accordance with IEC TR 60079-16, and other standards addressing specific Ex assemblies;

– installation at the end-user site under the scope of IEC 60079-14;

– classification of the hazardous area;

– equipment assemblies for mines susceptible to firedamp (Group I applications);

– inherently explosive situations and dust from explosives or pyrophoric substances (for example explosives manufacturing and processing);

– rooms used for medical purposes;

– electrical installations in areas where the hazard is due to flammable mist.

The specification is only intended to provide validation for the initial supply of an assembly.

Where a requirement of this document conflicts with a requirement of either IEC60079-0 or ISO 80079-36, the requirement of this document takes precedence.
