Superseded. Gas-tube surge-protective devices for application on systems with voltages 1000 V rms or 1200 V dc are covered. These protective devices are designed to limit voltage surges on balanced or unbalanced communication circuits and on power circuits operating from dc to 420 Hz. Test criteria for determining the electrical characteristics of these devices are provided.
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.
C62.31-2006 - 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.
