Testing
2.8.1
Component Testing and Monitoring: The proposed product shall be single pulsed surge
current tested in all modes at the rated surge currents by an industry recognized independent test
laboratory. The test shall include a surge impulse (6kV [1.2x50µs], 500 amp [8x20 s] waveform)
to benchmark the unit’s suppression voltage. The applied impulse is followed by a single pulse
surge of the maximum rated surge current magnitude, followed by a second 6kV [1.2x50µs],
500 amp [8x20 s] impulse as a means of measuring clamping deviation (component
degradation). Compliance is achieved if the two measured suppression voltage do not vary by
more than 5%.
Due to present industry test equipment single pulse surge current capacities over 200,000 amps are
established via testing of individual modules in each mode.
