ASTM F1505-16(R2021) pdf free download.Standard Specification for Insulated and Insulating Hand Tools
1. Scope
1.1 This specification covers the testing of insulated and insulating hand tools used for working on, or in close proxim- ity to, energized electrical apparatus or conductors operating at maximum voltage of 1000 V ac or 1500 V dc. 1.2 The specific use of these tools is beyond the scope of this specification. 1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains to the test method portion only, Section 7, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all ofthe safety concerns, ifany, associated with its use. It is the responsibility ofthe user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 1.5 This specification does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with the use of tools on, or in close proximity to, energized electrical apparatus. 1.6 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
3. Terminology
3.1 Definitions: 3.1.1 insulated hand tools, n—those covered with insulating material in order to protect the user from electric shock and to minimize the risk of short circuits between parts at different potentials. 3.1.2 insulating hand tools, n—those made predominantly of insulating material, except for metal inserts at the working head or active part or used for reinforcement but with no exposed metal parts. In either case, to protect the user from electric shocks, as well as, to prevent short-circuits between exposed parts at different potentials.3.2 Definitions ofTerms Specific to This Standard: 3.2.1 acceptance test, n—a contractual test to prove to the customer that the device meets certain conditions of its specification. 3.2.2 formation of lots or batches, n—the product is as- sembled into identifiable lots, sub-lots, batches, or in such other manner as may be prescribed. Each lot or batch, as far as practicable, consists of units of product of a single type, grade, class, size, and composition, manufactured under essentially the same conditions and essentially the same time. 3.2.3 major defect, n—defect on product that is likely to result in failure, or to reduce significantly the functionality of the product. 3.2.4 minor defect, n—defect on product, other than major, that is not likely to reduce significantly the functionality of the product. 3.2.5 routine test, n—a test to which each individual device is subjected during or after manufacture to ascertain whether it complies with certain criteria. 3.2.6 sampling test, n—a test on a number of devices taken at random from a batch. 3.2.7 type test, n—a test of one or more devices made to a certain design to show that the design meets certain specifica- tions.
4. Performance Requirements
4.1 Insulated and insulating tools shall be designed and manufactured in such a way that they do not constitute a danger for the user or the installation if they are used properly. 4.2 The mechanical specifications for insulated and insulat- ing hand tools having the same function shall comply with the corresponding ANSI or ISO standards. The mechanical perfor- mance of the working parts shall be maintained even after the application of any insulating layer(s). The insulation material shall be such that it will adequately withstand the electrical, mechanical, and thermal stresses to which it may be exposed during normal use. Insulating hand tools specially designed for live working in an environment of live parts at different potentials (boxes with electrical equipment, live working on underground cables, etc.), that generally are used to hold or move live conductors or to cut wires of small section, must have adequate mechanical properties to avoid the risk of breaking and the possible corresponding electrical conse- quences. These tools shall be checked for compliance with 7.8. 4.3 All insulating material shall be flame resistant in accor- dance with 7.7. 4.4 The insulating coating may consist of one or more layers. If two or more layers are utilized, contrasting colors shall be employed. 4.5 The design and construction ofthe handles shall provide a secure handhold and prevent unintentional slipping. 4.6 The tool shall have an operating temperature range from – 20 to + 70 °C.
