This part of IEC/IEEE 62582 contains methods for condition monitoring of organic and
polymeric materials in instrumentation and control cables using insulation resistance
measurements in the detail necessary to produce accurate and reproducible results during
simulated accident conditions. It includes the requirements for the measurement system and
measurement procedure, and the reporting of the measurement results.
NOTE Measurement of insulation resistance during simulated accident conditions with the aim of determining the
lowest value during the accident in order to assess cable performance involves special requirements given in this
document. Methods for measurement under stable (non-accident) conditions are available in other international
standards, e.g. IEC 62631-3-3.
The different parts of the IEC/IEEE 62582 series are measurement standards, primarily for
use in the management of ageing in initial qualification and after installation. IEC/IEEE 62582-
1 includes requirements for the application of the other parts of the IEC/IEEE 62582 series
and some elements which are common to all methods. Information on the role of condition
monitoring in qualification of equipment important to safety is found in IEC/IEEE 60780-323.
