Bibliography

IEC 62561-1:2017 is also available as IEC 62561-1:2017 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 62561-1:2017 specifies the requirements and tests for metallic connection components that form part of a lightning protection system (LPS). Typically, these can be connectors, clamps, bonding and bridging components, expansion pieces and test joints.
For the purposes of this document the following connection types are considered as connection components: exothermic, brazing, welding, clamping, crimping, seaming, screwing or bolting. Testing of components for an explosive atmosphere is not covered by this document.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 2012. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a. classification of connection components in permanent and non-permanent connection;
b. requirements and corresponding tests for permanent connection components such as exothermic, brazing, welding, crimping, seaming;
c. flow chart of tests for connection components.
