EN 61482-1-2 - Work under voltage - Clothing protecting against the thermal effect of an electric arc - Part 1-2: Test methods - Method 2: Determination of material and clothing protection class using a concentrated and controlled arc (box test)

This standard sets out the tests with which materials and protective clothing can be assessed based on the use of a concentrated and controlled arc under laboratory conditions (box-test). A practical procedure concerning the test arrangement, test conditions, electrical and design parameters shall be chosen. The low voltage method shall be used for the tests. The tests may be carried out in two selected test classes, selected according to the size of the expected short-circuit current: The standard has uses in electrical engineering and electricity in live washing methods.
