Safety in installations for electroheating and electromagnetic processing – Part 1: General requirements
|Publication Date:||1 March 2020|
|ICS Code (Electric furnaces):||25.180.10|
This part of IEC 60519 specifies the general safety requirements for industrial installations or equipment intended for electroheating (EH) and electroheating based treatment technologies as well as for electromagnetic processing of materials (EPM). This document deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to industrial EH and EPM equipment, as listed in Annex A, for normal operation and for single fault condition as well as under conditions of reasonably foreseeable misuse.
This document specifies the requirements intended to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during the complete life cycle of the equipment from design through commissioning, operation, maintenance, inspection, to decommissioning, as well as in the event of foreseeable single fault condition that can occur in the equipment.
The rated voltage of EH and EPM equipment can be in the range of low voltage; details are given in 4.2.
This document does not apply to equipment and appliances within the scope of
- IEC 60079 (all parts) - i.e. equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres;
- IEC 60335 (all parts) - i.e. household, commercial and similar electrical appliances, including room heating;
- IEC 60601 (all parts) - i.e. medical electrical equipment;
- IEC 60974 (all parts) - i.e. arc welding equipment;
- IEC 61010 (all parts) - i.e. equipment for laboratory use.
This document does not provide requirements for type testing.
NOTE Industrial equipment covered by this document is typically produced as a single unit or a very small number of units; such unit usually has a very high value and can cause severe harm at disintegration.
This document does not address data security and hazards arising from neglect of security.
