The requirement of IEC 60695-2-10 details the method of testing used to test the flammability of materials, when subject to specified high temperatures, using a heated probe (glow wire). The tests temperatures are determined by the nature of the product being tested, or at the request of the customer.

IEC 61439-1, the standard for low voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies, clause 10.2.3.2, specifies the testing of insulating materials to abnormal heat, against the requirements of IEC 60695-11.

The equipment used for these tests also covers the requirements for testing to IEC 60695-2-12 & 13 as called for by other standards.

If you have a requirement to test insulating materials to abnormal heat, either as part of IEC 61439 or as a stand-alone test, please contact us.
