IEEE Standard Test Specifications for Low-Voltage Air Gap Surge-Protective Devices (Excluding Valve and Expulsion Type Devices)

Air gaps for overvoltage protection applications on systems with operating voltages equal to or less than 600 V rms are covered. These protective devices are designed for limiting the voltages on balanced or unbalanced communication, power, and signaling circuits. A series of standard design tests for determining the electrical characteristics of these air gap devices is specified. The tests provide a means of comparison among various air gap surge-protective devices.

C62.31-2020

IEEE Standard for Test Methods and Preferred Values for Low-Voltage Gas Discharge Tube Surge-Protective Components

This standard applies to low-voltage gas discharge tube (GDT ) surge-protective components for application on systems with voltages less than or equal to 1000 V rms or 1500 V dc. These protective components are designed to limit voltage surges on balanced or unbalanced communication circuits and on power circuits operating from dc to 420 Hz. This standard contains a series of standard test criteria for determining the electrical characteristics and ratings of gas discharge tube surge-protective components.
