Electrical safety in low voltage distribution systems up to 1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. - Equipment for testing, measuring or monitoring of protective measures - Part 16: Equipment for testing the effectiveness of the protective measures of electrical equipment and/or medical electrical equipment (IEC 61557-16:2014); German version EN 61557-16:2015

Title (German)

Elektrische Sicherheit in Niederspannungsnetzen bis AC 1 000 V und DC 1 500 V - Geräte zum Prüfen, Messen oder Überwachen von Schutzmaßnahmen - Teil 16: Geräte zur Prüfung der Wirksamkeit der Schutzmaßnahmen von elektrischen Geräten und/oder medizinisch elektrischen Geräten (IEC 61557-16:2014); Deutsche Fassung EN 61557-16:2015


Part 16 of IEC 61557 defines performance requirements for test and measurement equipment to determine the effectiveness of the protective measures of electrical measures for electrical equipment according to IEC 62638 and/or medical electrical equipment described in IEC 62353. It is the intention of this standard to achieve comparable measuring results, additional safety for the testing person and negligible electrical stress for the unit under test. The committee responsible is Subcommittee DKE/UK 964.1 "Messgeräte zum Prüfen von Schutzmaßnahmen" ("Equipment for testing of protective measures") of the DKE (German Commission for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies) at DIN and VDE.
