IEC - 61058-1 AMD 2

Amendment 2 Switches for appliances Part 1 : General requirements

inactive
Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 June 1994
Status: inactive
Page Count: 222
scope:

This International Standard IEC 1058 applies to switches for appliances actuated by hand, by foot or other human activity for use in, on or with appliances and other equipment for household and similar purposes, with a rated voltage not exceeding 440 V and a rated current not exceeding 63 A.  It also covers the indirect actuation of the switch when the function of the actuating member is provided by a part of an appliance or equipment such as a door.

This standard applies to switches intended to be incorporated in, on or with an appliance or equipment.

NOTES

1  For switches used in tropical climates, additional requirements may be necessary.

2  Attention is drawn to the fact that the standards for appliances and equipment may contain additional or alternative requirements for switches.

3  Throughout this standard the word "appliance" means appliance or equipment.

This part also applies to switches for appliances such as:

- switches intended to be connected to a cord (cord switches);

- switches integrated in an appliance (integrated switches);

- switches incorporating electronic components (electronic switches);

- switches intended to be mounted apart from the appliance (independently mounted switches) other than those within the scope of IEC 669;

- voltage selector switches.

for which, however, particular requirements are given in Part 2.

NOTE - Part 1 is applicable when testing incorporated switches.  When other types of switches for appliances are tested, this Part 1 is applicable together with the relevant Part 2.

Part 1 may, however, be applied for other types of switches which are not mentioned in Part 2, provided that the electrical safety is not disregarded.

IEC 1058 is not applicable to switches integrated with an automatic control.  Such switches are within the scope of IEC 730-1.
