|Publication Date:||1 January 2014|
|ICS Code (Electrical and electronic testing):||19.080|
|ICS Code (Chemical laboratories. Laboratory equipment):||71.040.10|
Equipment included in scope
This part of IEC 61010 specifies safety requirements for METERS.
The METERS that have a primary purpose of measuring voltage on a live MAINS CIRCUIT are within the scope of this standard. They have various names, but all of them have capability for measurements of voltages on a live MAINS CIRCUIT. Some of the names given to this equipment are as follows:
- digital MULTIMETER;
- clamp METER (see also Part 2-032).
For the purpose of this standard, the term METER is used for these HAND-HELD measuring instruments.
NOTE Parts of the equipment that are not within the scope of this Part 2-033 are considered to be covered by the requirements of Part 1 or other part 2's of IEC 61010 and then will also need to meet the requirements of these other parts.
