Safety requirements for radio transmitting equipment – General requirements and terminology
|Publication Date:||1 April 2016|
|ICS Code (Receiving and transmitting equipment):||33.060.20|
This International Standard applies to radio transmitting equipment, operating under the responsibility of SKILLED persons. It also applies to auxiliary equipment and ancillary apparatus, including combining units and matching networks and cooling systems where these form an integral part of the transmitter system.
The requirements of IEC 60215 may also be used to meet safety requirements for cognate equipment. Examples of equipment that could be within the scope of this International Standard are shown in Table 1.
Table 1 is not intended to be comprehensive, and equipment that is not listed is not necessarily excluded.
When the equipment is to be manufactured and/or installed in territories that have safety standards covering the scope of this International Standard that are more stringent, then those standards apply.
Antenna systems, associated feeder lines and matching networks, not forming an integral part of the transmitter, are excluded.
This International Standard does not apply to transmitters of safety-insulated construction using DOUBLE INSULATION or REINFORCED INSULATION and without provision for protective earthing. This type of equipment is designated CLASS II EQUIPMENT and is usually marked with a symbol as shown in 3.2.2 b).
This International Standard does not apply to battery powered transmitters or to radio base stations and fixed terminal stations for wireless telecommunication, as this equipment is covered by other standards.
