IEC 61557-5:2019 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is not an official document, it is available in English only and provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between the official IEC Standard and its previous edition.

IEC 61557-5:2019 specifies the requirements applicable to measuring equipment for measuring the resistance to earth using an AC voltage. IEC 61557-5:2019 cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2007. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) definitions and symbols in Clause 3 modified;
b) subclauses in Clause 4 restructured and aligned with other parts of the series;
c) limits for reduced voltages 25 V RMS or 35 V peak removed from 4.5;
d) requirements for clamps added;
e) marking for rated voltages to earth and measurement category added to Clause 5;
f) warning about absence of hazardous voltage added in Clause 5;
g) the term 'percentage operating uncertainty' replaced by 'operating uncertainty' in Clause 6;
h) equation for uncertainty corrected in Table 1;
i) new Annex A on test measurements with loop clamps added.
