C62.32-1981 - IEEE Standard Test Specifications for Low-Voltage Air Gap Surge-Protective Devices (Excluding Valve and Expulsion Type Devices)
Air gaps for overvoltage protection applications on systems with operating voltages equal to or less than 600 V rms are covered. These protective devices are designed for limiting the voltages on balanced or unbalanced communication, power, and signaling circuits. A series of standard design tests for determining the electrical characteristics of these air gap devices is specified. The tests provide a means of comparison among various air gap surge-protective devices.
C62.32-2004 - IEEE Standard Test Methods for Low-Voltage Air Gap Surge-Protective Device Components (Excluding Valve and Expulsion Types)
This standard applies to air gaps for overvoltage protection applications on systems with operating voltages equal to or less than 600 V rms. This standard contains a series of standard tests for determining the electrical characteristics of these air gap devices. This standard?s test criteria and definitions provide a common engineering language beneficial to users and manufacturers of air gap surge protective devices.
C62.31-2006 - IEEE Standard Test Methods for Low-Voltage Gas-Tube Surge-Protective Device Components
This standard applies to gas-tube surge-protective devices for application on systems with voltages, 1000 V rms or 1200 V dc.
