IEC 60695-11-11:2021 describes a test method used to determine the characteristic heat flux for ignition (CHFI) from a non-contacting flame source for materials used in electrotechnical products, sub-assemblies or their parts. It provides a relationship between ignition time and incident heat flux. A test specimen cut from an end-product or sub-assembly can be tested by this test method.
This part of IEC 60695 can be used in the fire hazard assessment and fire safety engineering procedures described in IEC 60695-1-10, IEC 60695-1-11 and IEC 60695-1-12.
