    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies general requirements and tests that are common to switchgear and controlgear intended to be connected to circuits, the rated voltage of which does not exceed 1000 volt a.c. or 1500 volt d.c. This document is technically identical with and reproduced from IEC 60947.1:2004.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This standard applies,when required by the relevant product standard,to switchgear andcontrolgear hereinafter referred to as ‘equipment ’ and intended to be connected to circuits, the rated voltage of which does not exceed 1 000 V a.c.or 1 500 V d.c.It does not apply to low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies which are dealt with inAS/NZS 60439IEC 60439.NOTE In certain clauses or subclauses of this standard, the equipment covered by this standard is also referred to as ‘device’, to be consistent with the text of such clauses or subclauses.The object of this standard is to state those general rules and requirements which arecommon to low-voltage equipment as defined in 1.1,including for example:– definitions;– characteristics;– information supplied with the equipment;– normal service,mounting and transport conditions;– constructional and performance requirements;– verification of characteristics and performance.
