IEC 60903-2014 pdf – Live working – Electrical insulating gloves.
1 Scope This International Standard is applicable to electrical insulating gloves and mitts that provide protection of the worker against electric shock. Unless otherwise stated, the use of the term “glove” includes both gloves and mitts. This standard also covers electrical insulating gloves with additional integrated mechanical protection referred to in this document as “composite gloves”. The products designed and manufactured according to this standard contribute to the safety of the users provided they are used by skilled persons, in accordance with safe methods of work and the instructions for use. NOTE Insulating gloves are normally to be used in conjunction with leather protector gloves to provide mechanical protection. Composite insulating gloves are normally used without over-gloves. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. IEC 60060-1 , High-voltage test techniques – Part 1: General definitions and test requirements IEC 60060-2, High-voltage test techniques – Part 2: Measuring systems IEC 6021 2, Standard conditions for use prior to and during the testing of solid electrical insulating materials IEC 6041 7, Graphical symbols for use on equipment IEC 61 31 8:2007, Live working – Conformity assessment applicable to tools, devices and equipment IEC 61 477, Live working – Minimum requirements for the utilization of tools, devices and equipment ISO 23529, Rubber – General procedures for preparing and conditioning test pieces for physical test methods 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in IEC 61 31 8 as well as the following apply.
3.1 bell cuff glove glove with an enlarged shape from the wrist to the cuff in such a way as to facilitate pull-on over a thick garment 3.2 composite glove electrical insulating glove made with additional integrated mechanical protection of the glove [SOURCE: IEC 60050-651 :201 4, 651 -23-03 and IEC 60743:201 3, 8.2.1 , modified – The definition clarifies that the mechanical protection is an additional one] 3.3 contour glove glove shaped at the upper part of the gauntlet in such a way as to facilitate the bending of the arm and intended for gloves that extend to or above the elbow 3.4 cuff open part of a glove 3.5 cuff roll roll or reinforced edge of a glove at the cuff 3.6 disruptive discharge passage of an arc following dielectric breakdown Note 1 to entry: The term “flashover” (in French “contournement”) is used when a disruptive discharge occurs at least partly along the surface of a solid dielectric surrounded by a gaseous or liquid medium. Note 2 to entry: The term “puncture” (in French “perforation”) is used when a disruptive discharge occurs through a solid dielectric producing permanent damage. [SOURCE: IEC 60050-604:1 987, 604-03-38 modified – the content of the original note has been reduced, modified to suit the application and presented in the form of two notes to entry] 3.7 elastomer macromolecular material which returns rapidly to its initial dimensions and shape after substantial deformation by a weak stress and release of the stress Note 1 to entry: The definition applies under room temperature test conditions. [SOURCE: ISO 472:201 3, 2.327] 3.8 electrical insulating glove glove made of elastomer, used for the protection of the worker against electric shock [SOURCE: IEC 60050-651 :201 4, 651 -23-02 and IEC 60743:201 3, 8.1 .3, modified – The definition is in line with the composition requirements of the standard for the type of insulating material. The note 1 to entry has been deleted]
3.1 0 formally trained and qualified person competent person possessing the appropriate practical and theoretical knowledge and having adequate skill and experience to enable the person to perform the required periodic testing, interpret the resultant information and from that information determine that the electrical insulating glove is safe to use, and report the importance of any defect found or suspected in relation to the safety and continued use of the electrical insulating glove 3.1 1 gauntlet part of a glove from the wrist to the open part of the glove 3.1 2 lined glove glove with an inside lining of textile attached to the elastomer 3.1 3 long glove electrical insulating glove used to extend the protection to the upper arm Note 1 to entry: The length of the glove does not include protection up to the armpit. [SOURCE: IEC 60743:201 3, 8.1 .5, modified – The whole document is about insulating glove protecting against electric shock so that does not need to be repeated in the term and its definition. The note 1 to entry has been added to clarify the type of protection offered]
