Standard for Performance Criteria and Test Methods for Plug-in (Portable) Multiservice (Multiport) Surge-Protective Devices for Equipment Connected to a 120 V/240 V Single Phase Power Service and Metallic Conductive Communication Line(s)

The scope of this standard is to define performance criteria and test methods for plug-in (portable) multiservice (multiport) surge protective devices (MSPDs) intended to protect equipment connected to one or more metallic conductive communication line(s) and a 120 V/240 V single phase ac power service, with the neutral grounded at the service equipment. These devices are intended for installation at receptacles supplying power via a branch circuit of the installation, and jointly at receptacles or ports delivering signals from communications services, for the purpose of providing protected power and signals to a variety of information technology equipment.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.


C62.50-2012

IEEE Standard for Performance Criteria and Test Methods for Plug-in (Portable) Multiservice (Multiport) Surge-Protective Devices for Equipment Connected to a 120 V/240 V Single Phase Power Service and Metallic Conductive Communication Line(s)

Test methods and performance criteria for plug-in (portable) multiservice (multiport) surge protective devices (MSPDs) intended to protect equipment connected to one or more metallic conductive telecommunication line(s) and a 120 V/240 V single phase two-wire (line and neutral) ac power service, with the neutral grounded at the service equipment are defined in this standard. Performance testing covers three areas: the ac power SPD section, the telecommunication SPD section, and the MSPD as whole. Essential MSPD performance characteristics are the reduction of surge current in the equipment ground loops and surge coupling between the individual SPD sections.
