    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives fundamental properties, quantities for characterization and an environmental conditions classification dependent on wind and precipitation, relevant for electrotechnical products. Defines the characteristics of wind and precipitation as background for the severities to which products are likely to be exposed during storage, transportation and use.
