    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This technical report deals with the correlation and transformation of the conditions given in IEC 60721-3-2 to the environmental tests defined in IEC 60068-2. It aims to provide the specification writer with guidance together with a set of easy-to-use tables which correlate and transform these conditions.
