Empty enclosures for low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies - General requirements
|ICS Code (Low voltage switchgear and controlgear):||29.130.20|
This International Standard applies to empty enclosures, prior to the incorporation of switchgear and controlgear components by the user, as supplied by the enclosure manufacturer. This standard specifies definitions, classifications, characteristics and test requirements of enclosures to be used for e.g. as part of switchgear and controlgear assemblies in accordance with the IEC 61439 series, the rated voltage of which does not exceed 1 000 V a.c., or 1 500 V d.c. and suitable for general use for either indoor or outdoor applications. NOTE 1 Additional requirements may apply for specific applications This standard does not apply to enclosures, which are covered by other specific products standards (e.g. IEC 60670). Compliance with the safety requirements of the applicable product standard is the responsibility of the assembly manufacturer. NOTE 2 This standard may serve as a basis for other technical committees.
