    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    IEC/TS 62561-8:2018 specifies the requirements and tests for insulating stand-offs, used in conjunction with an air-termination system and down-conductors with the aim of maintaining the proper separation distance, and the requirements and tests for insulating down‑conductors, including their specific fasteners, able to reduce the separation distance.
