IEC 60404-10:2016 is available as IEC 60404-10:2016 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 60404-10:2016(E) is applicable to grain-oriented and non-oriented electrical steel strip and sheet for measurements of a.c. magnetic properties in the frequency range 400 Hz to 10 000 Hz. The object of this document is to define the general principles and the technical details of the measurement of magnetic properties of electrical steel strip and sheet by means of an Epstein frame. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) adaption to modern measurement and evaluation methods, in particular the introduction of the widely spread digital sampling method for the acquisition and evaluation of the measured data;
b) introduction of formal changes which adapt this standard to other standards of the 60404 series;
c) revision of the problem of the air flux compensation taking account of the condition of the higher frequencies;
d) revision of the capacitive coupling of mutual inductor windings together with the consideration of the alternative method of numerical air flux compensation.
The contents of the corrigendum of March 2018 have been included in this copy.
