Title & Task

PT 60695-2-20

Hot wire ignition test


Motivation and Scope
In spite of the huge efforts made to date and the success gained during intensive international round robin testing, the recent work on project IEC/TS 60695-2-20 Ed.3.0 "HWI” showed that, further R&D work is necessary in order to achieve an even more significant improvement of the repeatability and reproducibility of the test method.
Just recently, the work on document IEC/TS 60695-2-20 was halted, and the project was returned to the PWI stage. It is now intended to establish a new Project Team – PT 60695-2-20 "Hot wire ignition test", with the task to further investigate and analyze on the fundamental physics of the HWI test method, and to provide justification to whether or not re-launch the standardization project.
