Introduction

This international document presents graphical symbols for use on control, integrated automation equipment

or technical building management equipments and systems.

Ease of use automation functionalities requires clear graphical symbols, readable independently of language,

i.e. internationally recognising.

For building energy performance, it is important to take account expected behaviour of people encouraged to

save energy through building automation equipment. Ease of use is a prime means to get realistic

performance during exploitation. Professionals or end users are able to reduce largely energy consumptions

by setting easily operating modes and functions parameters for best adaptation of mechanical services

functionalities to needs.

For this purpose, graphical symbols constitute the best readable mean, mainly if these graphical elements are

largely, internationally used by manufacturers of control, integrated automation equipment or technical

building management equipments and systems.

NOTE This document, therefore, is contributing to the general European policy for energy saving, particularly in the

fields of the Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC) Essential Requirements n° 6 «Energy economy and

heat retention» (and its interpretative document) and of the Energy Performance of Building Directive

(2002/91/CE).

equipments and/or technical documentation of products in order to instruct the person(s) using the

equipments.
These graphical symbols are primary intended:

 to identify control or automation or technical management equipments or part of these equipments:

electronic devices (e.g. controller, scheduler, optimiser, etc.), sensors, actuators,

 to indicate functions and their operating modes,
 to indicate settings for modes and functions parameters introduction,
 to designate connexions,

 to provide instruction to users (professional and/or end user) for the operation of the equipment.

The graphical symbols in this document are not primarily intended for:
 safety signs,
 public information,
 schematics for systems principles.
2 Normative references

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated

references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced

document (including any amendments) applies.

4 Symbols overview

These symbols are normally printed or screened on black and white or two colours, e.g. a dark colour and

white. Colour is not an element for the meaning.

These symbols are readable static pictures, animation on a screen is not an element for the meaning.

The meaning of each graphical symbol may depend upon its orientation in a given reference system and care

should be taken to avoid ambiguity (e.g. by rotating or mirroring).

Technology for display, print, paint or show on screen, project onto sufficient resolution for keep readability.

Each graphical symbol may be used in any field of building equipment, provided its meaning is clearly

understood.
5 Symbols tables
5.1 General
Symbols in Tables 1 and 2 are selected in accordance with these rules:

− priority for graphical symbols from standards ISO 7000 and IEC 60417. Drawing, title and eventual

comments (IEC 60147-1) are copied without modification;
− completed by symbols based on manufacturers recognized practices;
− no new symbols if they can not be found on devices on the market.
In these tables:
− Column 1 - N°: allocated number, without ordering signification.
− Column 2 - Symbol: drawing.

− Column 3 - Source: indicates origin of the symbol and allocated number in ISO 7000 or IEC 60147-1

standards. If the symbol came from another origin (e.g. national standards or manufacturers), the

source is not labelled.

− Column 4 - TITLE: signification of symbol from ISO 7000 or IEC 60147-1 standard or another origin.

On IEC 60417-1 the title of symbols is completed by a description. An extract from this description is

copied from IEC 60417-1 in this column.

− Column 5 - Application & Comments: gives indications for kind of application and/or comments for the

uses of the symbol.
