This part of IEC 60216 specifies the experimental and calculation procedures to be used for deriving the relative temperature index of a material from experimental data obtained in accordance with the instructions of IEC 60216-1 and IEC 60216-2. The calculation procedures are supplementary to those of IEC 60216-3.

Guidance is also given for assessment of thermal ageing after a single fixed time and temperature, without extrapolation.

The experimental data can in principle be obtained using destructive, non-destructive or proof tests, although destructive tests have been much more extensively employed. Data obtained from non-destructive or proof tests can be “censored”, in that measurement of times taken to reach the endpoint have been terminated at some point after the median time but before all specimens have reached end-point (see IEC 60216-1).

Guidance is given for preliminary assignment of a thermal class for an electrical insulating material (EIM), based upon the thermal ageing performance.

While the thermal classification of an EIM is not directly related to the thermal classification of an electrical insulation system (EIS), the thermal classification of an EIS follows the same concepts as presented in this part of the 60216 series. The calculation procedures of this standard apply to the determination of the thermal class of an EIS when the thermal stress is the prevailing ageing factor.
