1.Scope and object of IEC61109:2008 INSULATORS FOR OVERHEAD LINES – COMPOSITE SUSPENSION AND TENSION INSULATORS FOR A.C. SYSTEMS WITH A NOMINAL VOLTAGE GREATER THAN 1 000 V – DEFINITIONS, TEST METHODS AND ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA

Scope and object This International Standard applies to composite suspension/tension insulators consisting of a load-bearing cylindrical insulating solid core consisting of fibers – usually glass – in a resin-based matrix, a housing (outside the insulating core) made of polymeric material and end fittings permanently attached to the insulating core. Composite insulators covered by this standard […]

Introduction of IEC61109 Insulators for overhead lines – Composite suspension and tension insulators for a.c. systems with a nominal voltage greater than 1 000 V – Definitions, test methods and acceptance criteria

Composite insulators consist of an insulating core, bearing the mechanical load protected by a polymeric housing, the load being transmitted to the core by end fittings. Despite these common features, the materials used and the construction details employed by different manufacturers may be quite different. Some tests have been grouped together as “Design tests”, to be performed only […]

Insulators tested in vertical position and horizontal position

As we know,high voltage insulators shall subject to mechanical failing load test, and when we mention “test in vertical position and horizontal position”, this more refer to suspension insulator, tension insulator, post insulator and pin insulator. The suspension and tension insulator are normally tested in horizontal direction, as they are long in shape, with length […]
