IEEE-SA - Newswire December 2017
A monthly update on standards and related solutions.
Newly Published Standards
  • IEEE 1856™-2017, Standard Framework for Prognostics and Health Management of Electronic Systems

    This standard covers all aspects of prognostics and health management of electronic systems, including definitions, approaches, algorithms, sensors and sensor selection, data collection, storage and analysis, anomaly detection, diagnosis, metrics, life cycle cost of implementation, return on investment and documentation.

  • IEEE 515™-2017, Standard for the Testing, Design, Installation, and Maintenance of Electrical Resistance Trace Heating for Industrial Applications

    This standard provides requirements for the testing, design, installation, and maintenance of electrical resistance trace heating in general industries as applied to pipelines, vessels, pre-traced and thermally insulated instrument tubing and piping, and mechanical equipment. The provisions of this standard should ensure that process, fluid, or material temperatures are maintained and provide electrical, thermal, and mechanical durability to the trace heating system, so that in normal use, its performance is reliable and poses no danger to the user or surroundings.

  • IEEE 802.15.3d™-2017, Standard for High Data Rate Wireless Multi-Media Networks--Amendment 2: 100 Gb/s Wireless Switched Point-to-Point Physical Layer

    This standard defines PHY and MAC specifications for high data rate wireless connectivity (typically over 200 Mb/s) with fixed, portable and moving devices. Data rates are high enough to satisfy a set of consumer multimedia industry needs, as well as to support emerging wireless switched point-to- point and high rate close proximity point to point applications.

  • IEEE C62.43.0™-2017, Guide for Surge Protectors and Protective Circuits Used in Information and Communications Technology Circuits, Including Smart Grid Data Networks—Overview

    This guide gives an overview of the application of surge protectors and protective circuits used in information and communications technology (ICT) circuits, including Smart Grid data networks. It represents a revision of the previous version reflecting advances in Smart Grid technology.

  • IEEE C57.12.36™-2017, Standard Requirements for Liquid-Immersed Distribution Substation Transformers

    This standard covers certain electrical, dimensional, and mechanical characteristics of 50 Hz and 60 Hz, two winding, liquid-immersed distribution substation transformers. This class of transformers has previously been handled within the Power Transformer Standard IEEE C57.12.10™, which mainly reflected standards that did not necessarily apply to this class.
