    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the requirements for both self-healing and non-self- healing continuously rated a.c. capacitors of up to and including 2,5 kvar, and not less than 0,1 F, having a rated voltage not exceeding 1 000 V, which are intended for use in discharge lamp circuits operating at 50 Hz or 60 Hz and at altitudes up to 3 000 m. Does not cover radio-interference suppressor capacitors, the requirements for which are given in IEC 60384-14. This publication supersedes IEC 60566. The contents of the corrigendum January 1992 have been included in this copy.
