This Part of IEC 61058 applies to change-over selectors (mechanical or electronic) for
appliances actuated by hand, by foot or by other human activity, to operate or control
electrical appliances and other equipment for household or similar purposes with a rated
voltage not exceeding 480 V and a rated current not exceeding 63 A.
These change-over selectors are intended to be operated by a person, via an actuating
member or by actuating a sensing unit. The actuating member or sensing unit can be integral
with or arranged separately, either physically or electrically, from the switch, and can involve
transmission of a signal, for example electrical, optical, acoustic or thermal, between the
actuating member or sensing unit and the switch.
Change-over selectors which incorporate additional control functions governed by the switch
function are within the scope of this document.
This document also covers the indirect actuation of the switch when the operation of the
actuating member or sensing unit is provided by a remote control or a part of an appliance or
equipment such as a door.
NOTE 1 Electronic change-over selectors can be combined with mechanical change-over selectors giving full
disconnection or micro-disconnection.
NOTE 2 Electronic change-over selectors without a mechanical switch in the supply circuit provide only electronic
disconnection. Therefore, the circuit on the load side is always considered to be live.
NOTE 3 For change-over selectors used in tropical climates, additional requirements can apply.
NOTE 4 Attention is drawn to the fact that the standards for appliances can contain additional or alternative
requirements for change-over selectors.
NOTE 5 Throughout this document, the word "appliance" means "appliance or equipment".
This document applies to change-over selectors intended to be incorporated in, on, or with an
appliance.
This document also applies to change-over selectors incorporating electronic devices.

IEC 61828:2020
- provides definitions for the transmitted field characteristics of focusing and nonfocusing transducers for applications in medical ultrasound;
- relates these definitions to theoretical descriptions, design, and measurement of the transmitted fields of focusing transducers;
- gives measurement methods for obtaining defined field characteristics of focusing and nonfocusing transducers;
- specifies beam axis alignment methods appropriate for focusing and nonfocusing transducers.
IEC 61828:2021 relates to focusing ultrasonic transducers operating in the frequency range appropriate to medical ultrasound (0,5 MHz to 40 MHz) for both therapeutic and diagnostic applications. It shows how the characteristics of the transmitted field of transducers can be described from the point of view of design, as well as measured by someone with no prior knowledge of the construction details of a particular device. The transmitted ultrasound field for a specified excitation is measured by a hydrophone in either a standard test medium (for example, water) or in a given medium. This document applies only to media where the field behaviour is essentially like that in a fluid (i.e. where the influence of shear waves and elastic anisotropy is small), including soft tissues and tissue-mimicking gels. Any aspects of the field that affect their theoretical description or are important in design are also included. These definitions would have use in scientific communications, system design and description of the performance and safety of systems using these devices.
IEC 61828:2021 incorporates definitions from other related standards where possible, and supplies more specific terminology, both for defining focusing characteristics and for providing a basis for measurement of these characteristics.
IEC 61828:2021 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2001. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) Clause 6 on Measurement procedures has been replaced by Clause 6: "Acoustic field measurement: equipment" and Clause 7: "Measurement procedure" and related definitions.
b) Reorganization of definitions and measurement section to accommodate specific sets of measurements for focusing, nonlinearity, beam axis alignment, beam area, beam maximum, numerical projection, plane wave, high intensity therapeutic ultrasound, multiple sources, spatial impulse response and compound plane waves. Clause 3 has been moved to Annex B.
c) The normative references have been updated and the Bibliography has been expanded from 8 to 40 references.
d) Twelve figures have been updated and seven new figures (B.1, B.3, B.7, B.10, B.11, B.12, B.13, B.14) have been added to facilitate measurements and be consistent with measurement terminology.
e) New measurements have been added for time delays, arrays, plane waves and spatial impulse response.
f) Annex A has been expanded to provide general guidance on pulsed waves, system responses, focusing gains and minimum beamwidth estimation.
g) New annexes have been added: • Annex B (informative) Rationale for focusing and nonfocusing definitions • Annex E (informative) Uncertainties; • Annex F (informative) Transducer and hydrophone positioning systems; • Annex G (informative) Planar scanning of a hydrophone to determine acoustic output power; • Annex H (informative) Properties of water; In addition, Annex A was reorganized and new Clauses A.1, A.5 and A.6 were added. h) Guidelines for remaining within the manufacturer’s pressure and intensity hydrophone limits and the determination of the extent of nonlinearity in the field have been added.
