Automatic electrical controls for household and similar use – Part 2-11: Particular requirements for energy regulators
|Publication Date:||1 October 2006|
|ICS Code (Automatic controls for household use):||97.120|
In general, this part of IEC 60730 applies to energy regulators for use in, on, or in association with equipment for household and similar use, including energy regulators for heating, air conditioning and similar applications. The equipment may use electricity, gas, oil, solid fuel, solar thermal energy, etc. or a combination thereof.
These energy regulators may be thermally, mechanically or electrically operated.
This standard applies to the inherent safety, to the operating values, operating times and operating sequence where such are associated with equipment safety, and to the testing of automatic electrical energy regulator devices used in, or in association with, household or similar equipment.
This standard is also applicable to energy regulators for appliances within the scope of IEC 60335-1.
Throughout this standard the word "equipment" means "appliance and equipment".
This standard does not apply to automatic electrical energy regulators designed exclusively for industrial applications.
This standard is also applicable to individual energy regulators utilized as part of a control system or energy regulators which are mechanically integral with multi-functional controls having non-electrical outputs.
Energy regulators for equipment not intended for normal household use, but which nevertheless may be used by the public, such as equipment intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, are within the scope of this standard.
See also Annex J.
This standard applies to automatic electrical controls, mechanically or electrically operated, responsive to or controlling such characteristics as temperature, pressure, passage of time, humidity, light, electrostatic effects, flow, or liquid level, current, voltage or acceleration.
This standard applies to starting relays, which are a specific type of automatic electrical control, intended to switch the starting winding of a motor. Such controls may be built into, or be separate from, the motor.
This standard applies to manual energy regulators when such are electrically and/or mechanically integral with automatic controls.
Requirements for manual switches not forming part of an automatic energy regulator are contained in IEC 61058-1.
This standard applies to energy regulators with a rated voltage not exceeding 690 V and with a rated current not exceeding 63A.
This standard does not take into account the response value of an automatic action of a control, if such a response value is dependent upon the method of mounting the control in the equipment. Where a response value is of significant purpose for the protection of the user, or surroundings, the value defined in the appropriate household equipment standard or as determined by the manufacturer shall apply.
This standard applies also to energy regulators incorporating electronic devices, requirements for which are contained in Annex H.
This standard applies also to energy regulators using NTC or PTC thermistors, additional requirements for which are contained in Annex J.
