IEC 61958 pdf download – High-voltage prefabricated switchgear and controlgear assemblies – Voltage presence indicating systems
This International Standard is applicable to voltage presence indicating systems (VPIS) incor-porated in a.c.switchgear and controlgear covered by IEC 60298 or lEC 60466.
Voltage presence indicating systems are devices used to provide information to operatorsabout the voltage condition of the main circuit of the switchgear in which they are installed.
The indication of vPIS alone is not sufficient to prove that the system is dead: if operatingprocedures make it mandatory,relevant voltage detectors according to lEC 61243 shall beused.
This standard is also applicable to phase comparators specifically designed for use with vPIS.

2 Service conditions
vPIS are designed to be used under the same service conditions as the switchgear in whichthey are installed, as defined in clause 2 of lEC 60694.
For the purpose of this International Standard the following definitions apply.
voltage presence indicating system (vPIs)
device used to indicate the presence of operating voltageNOTE 1vPIs may also be used in conjunction with phase comparators.
NOTE 2 vPIS are not designed to detect reliably the absence of voltage: for this purpose,only voltage detectorsor voltage detecting systems (vDs according to IEC 61243-5) should be used.
coupling element
part of the VPIS connected to the main circuit which transmits to the indicating element asignal related to the voltage condition of this circuit. Different physical principles can be usedfor the coupling element, for example,capacitive, resistive, optical, etc.
indicating element
part of the VPlS which gives a visual indication depending on the input signal received from thecoupling element
connecting point
point of the indicating element where a suitable phase comparator may be connected
phase comparator
apparatus which indicates the phase relationship between the connecting points of two VPIS
nominal voltage (u)
suitable approximate value of voltage used to identify a system or device[IEV 6o1-o1-21, modified]
NOTE1 The nominal voltage of the vPIS is the parameter associated with its clear indication.VPIS may haveone nominal voltage U., or a nominal voltage range. Limit values of the nominal voltage range are named ULnmin andunmax·
NOTE 2In this standard, the nominal voltage of a three-phase system is the normal phase-to-phase voltage.Thenominal voltage of a single-phase system is the normal voltage between lines.
voltage limiting device
protective device that limits the voltage at the output terminal of the coupling element in thecase of insulation failure
