This part of IEC 61439 defines the specific requirements for the power switchgear and
controlgear assembly (abbreviated ‘PSC-assembly’ throughout this document see 3.1.101) as
follows:
• assemblies for which the rated voltage does not exceed 1 000 V AC or 1 500 V DC;
• assemblies designed for a nominal frequency of the incoming supply or supplies not
exceeding 1 000 Hz;
NOTE 1 Frequencies above 1 kHz are considered as high frequencies, see also IEC 60664-1:2007, 5.3.3.2.5
to take into account additional constraints to insulation coordination.
• assemblies intended for indoor and outdoor applications;
• stationary or movable assemblies with or without enclosures;
• assemblies intended for use in connection with the generation, transmission, distribution
and conversion of electrical energy, and for the control of equipment consuming electrical
energy and for associated data processing;
• assemblies designed for use under special service conditions, for example in ships and in
rail vehicles, provided that the other relevant specific requirements are complied with;
NOTE 2 Supplementary requirements for assemblies in ships are covered by IEC 60092-302-2.
This document also applies to assemblies for use in photovoltaic installations, designated as
photovoltaic assemblies (PVA). The particular characteristics, specific service conditions and
the requirements for PVA’s are included in Annexes DD, EE and FF.
This document provides supplementary requirements for PSC-assemblies intended for use as
part of the electrical equipment of machines and can be applied in addition to the
requirements given in IEC 60204-1.
This document applies to all assemblies whether they are designed, manufactured and
verified on a one-off basis or fully standardised and manufactured in quantity.
The manufacture and/or assembly can be carried out by an entity other than the original
manufacturer (see 3.10.1 of IEC 61439-1:2020).
This document does not apply to individual devices, for example, circuit-breakers, fuse
switches and self-contained components such as, motor starters, power electronic converter
systems and equipment (PECS), switch mode power supplies (SMPS), uninterruptable power
supplies (UPS), basic drive modules (BDM), complete drive modules (CDM), adjustable speed
power drives systems (PDS), stand-alone energy storage systems (battery and capacitor
systems), and other electronic equipment which comply with their relevant product standards.
This document describes their integration into a PSC-assembly or an empty enclosure used
as a part of a PSC-assembly.
For some applications, such as, explosive atmospheres, functional safety, there may be a
need to comply with the requirements of other standards or legislation in addition to those
specified in the IEC 61439 series.
This document does not apply to the specific types of assemblies covered by other parts of
IEC 61439. For assemblies not covered by other parts, this part applies.
Unless local legislation details additional requirements, equipment within the scope of this
document, which complies with this document, is deemed to meet essential safety
requirements. This includes fully verified specifier options, for example user choice of
protection against accidental contact with hazardous live parts of IPXXB or IP3XD. Where
special requirements are agreed between the user and manufacturer, that are not fully
specified within this document, for example, (i) part of the assembly is outside the scope of
this document, (ii) exceptional vibration is present at the place of installation, (iii) exceptional
voltage variations occur in service, or (iv) possible adverse effects from sonic or ultrasonic
sources, a risk assessment and/or additional or more severe verifications may be required to
demonstrate that the essential safety requirements have been fulfilled.

IEC 62026-3:2014 specifies an interface system between single or multiple controllers, and control circuit devices or switching elements. The interface system uses two conductor pairs within one cable - one of these pairs provides a differential communication medium and the other pair provides power to the devices. This part establishes requirements for the interoperability of components with such interfaces. This third edition of IEC 62026-3 cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2008. This third edition constitutes a technical revision. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are the followings:
- specification of group 4 messages (5.1.2);
- clarifications on messaging protocol (5.2);
- addition of I/O multicast poll messages (5.5.2 and 5.5.8);
- clarifications on slave behaviour (5.5.4 and 5.5.9);
- clarifications on physical layer (transceiver) in 5.7;
- miscellaneous corrections/clarifications on cable (8.2);
- clarifications on EMC testing (9.2.10) and logical testing (9.3).

IEC TR 63216:2019 is to define homogeneous categories for the electromagnetic environments in order to harmonize as far as practicable all general rules and product standard requirements of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), applicable to low-voltage switchgear, controlgear and their assemblies with built-in electronic circuits.
This document also addresses incorporated radiocommunication functions.
The typical application environments for such equipment include the electrical distribution in infrastructure, commercial and industrial buildings and the control systems of machinery, including motor-driven systems.
The primary intention of EMC requirements is to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the equipment, as well as the communication efficiency of the radiocommunication equipment within their intended environments.

IEC 63119-1:2019 establishes a basis for the other parts of IEC 63119, specifying the terms and definitions, general description of the system model, classification, information exchange and security mechanisms for roaming between EV charge service providers (CSP), charging station operators (CSOs) and clearing house platforms through roaming endpoints. It provides an overview and describes the general requirements of the EV roaming service system. IEC 63119 (all parts) is applicable to high-level communication involved in information exchange/interaction between different CSPs, as well as between a CSP and a CSO with or without a clearing house platform through the roaming endpoint. IEC 63119 (all parts) does not specify the information exchange, either between the charging station (CS) and the charging station operator (CSO), or between the EV and the CS.

This part of IEC 62026 applies to interfaces between low-voltage switchgear, controlgear, and
controllers (e.g. programmable controllers, personal computers, etc.).
This document does not apply to higher level industrial communication networks that have
become known as fieldbuses and are considered by IEC subcommittee 65C.
The purpose of this document is to harmonize and define rules, components and requirements
of a general nature applicable to industrial CDIs. Those features of the various CDI standards
which can be considered as general have therefore been brought together in this document.
For each CDI, two main documents are necessary to determine all requirements and tests:
a) this document, referred to as “IEC 62026-1” in the relevant CDI parts covering the various
types of CDIs;
b) the specific CDI part of the IEC 62026 series.
A specific CDI part may omit a general requirement if it is not applicable, or it may add to it if
it is inadequate in the particular case.
NOTE Product-specific requirements for products incorporating a CDI are given in the relevant product standards.
These requirements apply in addition to those given in this document.

This part of IEC 60947 covers low-voltage arc quenching devices, hereinafter referred to as
AQDs, which are intended to eliminate arc-faults in low-voltage assemblies (typically lowvoltage
switchgear and controlgear assemblies in accordance with the IEC 61439 series), by
creating a lower impedance current path, to cause the arcing current to transfer to the new
current path. This new current path is maintained until a short-circuit protection device (SCPD)
interrupts the short-circuit current.
AQDs are installed in low-voltage assemblies, connected to the main circuit, preferably as
close as possible to all primary power sources.
Their rated voltage does not exceed 1 000 V AC or 1 500 V DC.
This document does not cover:
• sensors intended to detect arc-faults;
• devices intended to trigger the functioning of the arc quenching device;
• devices intended to interrupt arc-fault current;
• special requirements for AQDs for use in explosive atmospheres (e.g. ATEX).
