Harmonized standards:


Applies to control circuit devices and switching elements intended for control-ling, signalling, interlocking, etc., of switchgear and controlgear. It applies to control circuit devices having a rated voltage not exceeding 1 000 V a.c. (at a frequency not exceeding 1 000 Hz) or 600 V d.c. This standard applies to specific types of control circuit devices such as: – manual control switches, for example pushbuttons, rotary switches, foot switches, etc.; – electromagnetically operated control switches, either time-delayed or instantaneous, for example contactor relays; – pilot switches, for example pressure switches, temperature sensitive switches (thermostats), programmers, etc.; – position switches, for example control switches operated by part of a machine or mechanism; – associated control circuit equipment, for example indicator lights, etc. It also applies to specific types of switching elements associated with other devices (whose main circuits are covered by other standards) such as: – auxiliary contacts of a switching device (e.g. contactor, circuit breaker. etc.) which are not dedicated exclusively for use with the coil of that device; – interlocking contacts of enclosure doors; – control circuit contacts of rotary switches; – control circuit contacts of overload relays. Contactor relays shall also meet the requirements and tests of EN 60947-4-1 except for the utilization category which shall comply with this standard. This standard does not include the relays covered in EN 60255 or automatic electrical control devices for household and similar purposes. The colour requirements of indicator lights, pushbuttons, etc., are found in EN 60073 and also in publication 2 of the International Commission of Illumination (CIE). The object of this standard is to state: a) The characteristics of control circuit devices. b) The electrical and mechanical requirements with respect to: 1) The various duties to be performed. 2) The significance of the rated characteristics a
