This prestandard applies to equipment for operation on live parts with nominal voltages from 1 to 420 kV AC.
The devices can be used indoor and outdoor. If they are designed for this purpose they also may be used for a short time in wet weather conditions, which are moistening the insulating stick.
It is common practice, such devices are used in DC power systems with the same nominal voltage.
