Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear – Part 5-9: Control circuit devices and switching elements – Flow rate switches
|Publication Date:||1 December 2006|
|ICS Code (Low voltage switchgear and controlgear):||29.130.20|
Scope and object
This part of IEC 60947 applies to flow rate switches that sense the rate of flow of a gas, a liquid or a granular solid. These switches change their output state if a pre-set value for the speed of flow is exceeded.
These flow rate switches are self-contained, have semiconductor switching element(s) and are intended to be connected to circuits, the rated voltage of which does not exceed 250 V 50 Hz/60 Hz a.c. or 300 V d.c.
This standard does not specify the additional measures that are necessary for flow rate switches used in conjunction with explosive sensing materials and/or in an explosive location.
This standard is not intended to cover devices with analogue outputs.
The object of this standard is to state for flow rate switches:
- product information;
- normal service, mounting and transport conditions;
- constructional and performance requirements;
- tests to verify rated characteristics.
