P62395-1 - Electrical Resistance Trace Heating Systems for Industrial and Commercial Applications ? Part 1: General and testing requirements
This part of IEC/IEEE 62395-1 specifies requirements for electrical resistance trace heating systems and includes general test requirements. This standard pertains to trace heating systems that may comprise either factory-fabricated or field-assembled (work-site) units, and which may be series and parallel trace heaters or surface heaters (heater pads and heater panels) that have been assembled and/or terminated in accordance with the manufacturer?s instructions. This standard also includes requirements for termination assemblies and control methods used with trace heating systems. This standard provides the essential requirements and testing appropriate to electrical resistance trace heating equipment used in industrial and commercial applications. The products complying with this standard are intended to be installed by persons who are suitably trained in the techniques required and that only trained personnel carry out especially critical work, such as the installation of connections and terminations. Installations are intended to be carried out under the supervision of a qualified person who has undergone supplementary training in electric trace heating systems. This standard does not include or provide for any applications in potentially explosive atmospheres. This standard does not cover induction, impedance or skin effect heating. Trace heating systems are grouped into different types of applications and the different conditions found during and after installation necessitate different requirements for testing. Trace heating systems are usually for a specific type of installation or application. The product type grouping, applications and product attributes are indicated.
