<!-- NEW! -->IEC 60317-61:2020 is available as <a href="https://webstore.iec.ch/publication/67034">IEC 60317-61:2020 RLV</a> which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.</br></br>IEC 60317-61:2020 specifies the requirements of polyester glass-fibre wound, resin or varnish impregnated bare, grade 1 or grade 2 enamelled rectangular copper winding wires, temperature index 180. The impregnating agent can be, for instance, epoxy, polyester, or polyesterimide resin based. NOTE For this type of wire, the heat shock test is inappropriate and therefore a heat shock temperature cannot be established. Consequently, a class based on the requirements for temperature index and heat shock temperature cannot be specified. The range of nominal conductor dimensions covered by this document is:

- width: min. 2,0 mm max. 16,0 mm;

- thickness: min. 0,80 mm max. 5,60 mm.

The specified combinations of width and thickness as well as the specified width/thickness ratio are according to IEC 60317-0-8. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2012. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

- revision of the title of the standard;

- revision to Clause 1, Scope;

- revision to the descriptions of grades of thickness of polyester glass-fibre coverings in 3.2.2.
