Should your wish to review these standards in their entirety, please visit our Technical Information Center located at 6 Winchester Road, Kingston 10.
Scope: In general, this part of IEC 60730 applies to automatic electrical controls for use in, on or in association with equipment for household and similar use. The equipment may use electricity, gas, oil, solid fuel, solar thermal energy, etc., or a combination thereof.
This standard also applies to automatic electrical controls for equipment that may be used by the public, such as equipment intended to be used in shops, offices, hospitals, farms and commercial and industrial applications.
Scope: This Part 1 of IEC 60598 specifies general requirements for luminaires, incorporating electric light sources for operation from supply voltages up to 1000V. The requirements and related tests of this standard cover: classification, marking, mechanical construction, electrical construction and photobiological safety.
Scope: This standard applies to the classification of degrees of protection provided by enclosures for electrical equipment with a rated voltage not exceeding 72,5 kV
Scope: This part of IEC 60127 covers the general requirements and test applicable to all types of miniature fuse-links (e.g. cartridge fuse-links, sub-miniature fuse-links and universal modular fuse-links) for the protection of electric appliances, electronic equipment and component parts.
Specific details covering each major subdivision are in subsequent parts.
This standard does not apply to fuses for appliances intended to be used under special conditions, such as in corrosive or explosive atmosphere.
Scope: This part of IEC 60068 provides three standardized and coordinated test methods for determining the ability of a specimen to withstand specified severities of impact. It is used, in particular, to demonstrate an acceptable level of robustness when assessing the safety of a product and is primarily intended for a prescribed number of impacts defined by their impact energy and applied in the prescribed directions.
Scope: IEC 60068-2-38 provides a composite test procedure, primarily intended for component type specimens, to determine, in an accelerated manner, the resistance of specimens to the deteriorative effects of high temperature/humidity and cold conditions.
Scope: This part of IEC 60998 applies to connecting devices as separate entities for the connection of two or more electrical copper conductors (complying with IEC 60228 or IEC 60344) rigid (solid or stranded) or flexible, having a cross-sectional area of 0,2 mm2 up to and including 35 mm2 and equivalent AWG conductors with rated voltage not exceeding 1000 V d.c. where electrical energy is used for household and similar purpose.
Scope: This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows:
Addition: this standard applies to connecting devices with screw-type clamping units primarily suitable for connecting unprepared conductors.
Scope: This clause of Part 1 is applicable
Addition: This standard applies to connecting devices with screwless-type clamping units primarily suitable for connecting unprepared conductors.
Scope: This International Standard defines measurement methods for
The measuring methods recommended for TOUCH CURRENT are based upon the possible effects of current flowing through a human body. In this standard, measurements of current through networks representing the impedance of the human body are referred to as measurements of TOUCH CURRENT. The networks are not necessarily valid for the bodies of animals…
This standard is applicable only to tests on equipment aving a rated voltage of not more than 1kV a.c. or 1,5kV d.c.
This standard is applicable to type and routine tests for objects which are subjected to high voltage test as specified by the technical committee…
Scope: This part of IEC 61058 applies to switches for appliances. The switches are intended to control electrical appliances and other equipment for household or similar purposes with a rate voltage not exceeding 480 V and a rated current not exceeding 63 A.
Switches for appliances are intended to be operated by
Transmission of a signal between the actuating member or sensing unit and the switch may be connected by optical, acoustic, thermal, electronic circuits and devices that are necessary for the intended and/or correct operation of the switch…
