  • Dielectric strength (AC/DC withstand)
  • Insulation resistance (IR)
  • Earth conductor connection (GC / GB)
  • Leakage currents / leakage currents (LC)

The measurement conditions to be applied, such as the level and type of voltage or current, are described in detail in the respective standards.
