Título Double insulation for the prevention of contact voltages
Título original Schutzisolierung - Die Schutzmassnahme zur Verhinderung des Auftretens einer Berührungsspannung [en alemán]
Información bibliográfica 9 June 1972, Vol.21, No.12, p.1077-1082. Illus. 4 bibl.
Resumen Double insulation without a protective conductor is effective at all times and not just when the fault occurs. Consequently, it may be considered an "active" safety measure and thus suitable for eliminating the fatal electrical accidents caused by the fault current passing through the protective conductor. Double insulation is not only the safest but also the cheapest safety precaution. Its effectiveness is not reduced by time and it is easy to manufacture. Designers and testing engineers have only 2 basic points to take into consideration, and both these are related to voltage leakage out of the circuit. Similarly mistakes in assembly are also virtually impossible. Double insulation is validly considered to be today's best and safest electrical safety system.
