IEC 60974-8:2021 is available as IEC 60974-8:2021 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
IEC 60974-8:2021 specifies safety and performance requirements for gas consoles intended to be used with combustible gases or oxygen. These gas consoles are designed to supply gases for use in arc welding, plasma cutting, gouging and allied processes in non-explosive atmospheres. The gas console can be external or internal to the power source enclosure. In the latter case, the power source shall meet the requirements of both IEC 60974-1 and this document. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision. The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are the following:
- changes induced by the publication of IEC 60974-1:2017;

This part of IEC 60974 specifies requirements for the VERIFICATION of arc welding and external
monitoring equipment. This document also serves for practical implementation of the
VERIFICATION procedure for arc welding equipment.
This document can be applied at the time of installation and any other times or intervals the
user deems appropriate to ensure the equipment is capable of operating to the manufacturer’s
specification or other specifications deemed applicable by the user.
This document is not applicable to
– plasma systems used for cutting and gouging;
– arc striking and stabilizing devices;
– arc welding equipment designed in accordance with IEC 60974-6.
NOTE 1 Other components in welding systems such as for example robots, turning devices, gas consoles, etc.
also have influence on the welding result and can be verified, if necessary. Additional information can be found in
ISO 17662.
NOTE 2 Periodic inspection and testing for arc welding equipment is covered in IEC 60974-4.
This document is applicable for the user, service shop or manufacturer. It can be used
– stand alone;
– in conjunction with manufacturer’s instructions; or
– as the basis for an equivalent VERIFICATION procedure written by the manufacturer for
specific equipment.

This part of IEC 62822, which is a product family standard, applies to equipment for
resistance welding, arc welding and allied processes designed for occupational use by
professionals and for use by laymen.
NOTE 1 Typical allied processes are resistance hard and soft soldering, resistance heating by means comparable
to resistance welding equipment, electric arc cutting and arc spraying.
The frequency range covered is 0 Hz to 300 GHz.
This product family standard specifies assessment methods and criteria to evaluate
electromagnetic field (EMF) emissions of electric welding equipment with regard to national
and international requirements for human exposure to EMF.
NOTE 2 Magnetic fields generated by the operation of welding equipment and the resulting non-thermal effects
are the main assessment concern.
This product family standard does not define requirements and methods for workplace
assessment regarding the risks arising from electromagnetic fields. However, the EMF
exposure data that results from the application of this product family standard can be used to
assist in workplace assessment.
NOTE 3 The equipment manufacturer is unaware of the overall exposure environment in which the equipment will
be used (e.g. multiple sources) and is not responsible for all requirements for workplace assessment (e.g.
information and training of workers, design and layout of the workplace).
Other standards may apply to products covered by this standard. In particular this standard
cannot be used to demonstrate electromagnetic compatibility with other equipment. It does
not specify any product safety requirements other than those specifically related to human
exposure to electromagnetic fields.

IEC 60974-1:2012 is applicable to power sources for arc welding and allied processes designed for industrial and professional use, and supplied by a voltage not exceeding 1 000 V, or driven by mechanical means. This part of IEC 60974 specifies safety and performance requirements of welding power sources and plasma cutting systems. This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 2005 and constitutes a technical revision. The significant changes with respect to the previous edition are the following:  - the heating test shall be carried out at ambient temperature of 40 °C (see 5.1);  - new Figure 1 summarizes example of insulation requirements;  - creepage distances for pollution degree 4 are no longer valid (see Table 2);  - insulation requirements for Class II equipment are defined (see Table 3);  - dielectric test voltage interpolation restriction lower limit is changed to 220 V and interpolation for control and welding circuit is clarified (see Table 4);  - water test is clarified by suppression of visual inspection (see 6.2.1);  - isolation requirements of the supply circuit and the welding circuit are moved in protection against electric shock in normal service (see 6.2.4);  - touch current in normal service and in single fault condition requirements are changed (see 6.2.5, 6.2.6 and 6.3.6);  - maximum temperature for insulation systems are reviewed in accordance with current edition of IEC 60085 (see Table 6);  - limits of temperature rise for external surfaces are updated depending of unintentional contact period as defined in ISO 13732-1 (see Table 7);  - loading test is completed by a dielectric test (see 7.4);  - conformity test for tolerance to supply voltage fluctuation is clarified (see 10.1);  - marking of terminals is limited to external protective conductor and three-phase equipment terminals (see 10.4);  - usage of hazard reducing device is clarified (see 11.1);  - requirements for control circuits are changed (see Clause 12);  - impact test is clarified (see 14.2.2);  - environmental parameters are completed (see Annex M).
