Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 August 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 54
ICS Code (Low voltage switchgear and controlgear): 29.130.20
scope:

This part of IEC 60947 series specifies requirements for three-position enabling switches.

These switches are used as components of enabling devices to provide signals that,

a) when activated, allow machine operation to be initiated by a separate start control, and

b) when de-activated,

- initiate a stop function, and

- prevent initiation of machine operation.

NOTE 1 The enabling control function is described in 9.2.3.9 of IEC 60204-1:2016 but the application of threeposition enabling switches is not limited to a component of the enabling device described in IEC 60204-1.

NOTE 2 This document does not deal with enabling devices.

These switches are intended to be connected to circuits which rated voltage does not exceed 250 V AC 50 Hz/60 Hz or 300 V DC.

EXAMPLE Devices incorporating three-position enabling switches are:

- push-button enabling devices;

- grip actuated enabling devices;

- foot actuated enabling devices.

See Annex A for more typical examples.

This document does not apply to:

- three-position enabling switches for non-electrical control circuits, for example hydraulic, pneumatic;

- enabling switches without three-position mechanism;

- emergency stop devices (see IEC 60947-5-5).
