Basic and safety principles for man-machine interface, marking and identification - Identification of equipment terminals, conductor terminations and conductors

active, Most Current
Organization: CENELEC
Publication Date: 1 November 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 32
ICS Code (Graphical symbols for use on specific equipment): 01.080.20
ICS Code (Electrical engineering in general): 29.020
ICS Code (Safety of machinery): 13.110
scope:

This document applies to the identification and marking of terminals of electrical equipment such as resistors, fuses, relays, contactors, transformers, rotating machines and, wherever applicable, to combinations of such equipment (e.g. assemblies), and also applies to the identification of terminations of certain designated conductors. It also provides general rules for the use of certain colours or alphanumeric notations to identify conductors with the aim of avoiding ambiguity and ensuring safe operation. These conductor colours or alphanumeric notations are intended to be applied in cables or cores, busbars, electrical equipment and installations.

This basic safety publication is primarily intended for use by technical committees in the preparation of standards in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51.

It is not intended for use by manufacturers or certification bodies. One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications. The requirements of this basic safety publication will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications
