Nuclear power plants

Instrumentation systems important to safety – Pressure transmitters: Characteristics and test methods

(IEC 62887:2018)
Class/Status: Standard, valid
Released: 2022-04
VDE Art. No.: 0400511

This draft standard is applicable to general aspects of design, manufacturing and test methods for pressure transmitters used in nuclear power plants. The conditions imposed by reactor use are often different from those which occur in nonnuclear applications: exposure to neutron and gamma radiations, heating and structural changes, and to affect the mechanical and electrical properties of the equipment. Therefore, extra care has to be taken in the standards adopted for installations and in the choice of materials.
