Insulators for overhead lines

Composite line post insulators for A.C. systems with a nominal voltage greater than 1 000 V – Definitions, test methods and acceptance criteria

(IEC 61952:2008); German version EN 61952:2008
Class/Status: Standard, valid
Released: 2009-06
VDE Art. No.: 0441012


This standard applies to composite line post insulators consisting of a load-bearing cylindrical insulating solid core consisting of fibres - usually glass - in a resin-based matrix, a housing (outside the insulating core) made of polymeric material and end fittings permanently attached to the insulating core.
Composite line post insulators covered by this standard are subjected to cantilever, tensile and compressive loads, when supporting the line conductors. They are intended for use on a.c. overhead lines with a rated voltage greater than 1 000 V and a frequency not greater than 100 Hz.
