The relationship between current 604791 voltage is not linear because the impedance of the human body varies with the touch voltage, and data on this relationship is therefore required.

The protection of persons against electric shock in LV installations must be provided in conformity with appropriate national standards, statutory regulations, codes of practice, official ief and circulars etc. How to contribute Play with sandbox Recent changes Help. This refers to a person coming into contact with a conductor which is live in normal circumstances see Fig.

Electrical fires are caused by overloads, short circuits and earth leakage currents, but also by electric arcs in cables and connections. The degree of danger for the victim is a function of the magnitude of the current, the parts of the body through which the current passes, and the duration of current flow.

Protection against electric shocks and electrical fires. This file contains additional information iev as Exif metadata which may have been added by the eic camera, scanner, or software program used to create or digitize it.

Relevant IEC standards include: The impedance values indicated in this technical specification result from a close examination of the experimental results available from measurements carried out principally on corpses and on some living persons. Connection to the LV utility distribution network.

Protection measures are described in Protection against electrical fire risks. The values of body impedance depend on a number of factors and, in particular, on current path, on touch voltage, duration of current flow, frequency, degree of moisture of the skin, surface area of contact, pressure exerted and temperature.


The following page uses this file: Contents 1 – Introduction 1. When a current exceeding 30 mA passes near the heart of a human body, the person concerned is in serious danger if the current is not interrupted in a very short time. Ventricular fibrillation unlikely to happen C 2 curve: The following test report forms are related: The following other wikis use this file: Contact with live part Direct contact.

Its passage affects essentially the muscular, circulatory and respiratory functions and sometimes results in serious burns. Possibility of irreversible effects AC zone: Main page How to browse and search Random page. The fault current raises the exposed-conductive-part to a voltage liable to be hazardous as it generates a touch current through a person coming into contact with this exposed-conductive-part see Fig.
