(informative)
Relationship between this European standard and the safety objectives of
Directive 2014/35/EU [2014 OJ L96] aimed to be covered

This European Standard has been prepared under a Commission’s standardization request relating to

harmonized standards in the field of the Low Voltage Directive, M/511, to provide one voluntary means

of conforming to safety objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the

Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonization of the laws of the Member States relating to the

making available on the market of electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits

[2014 OJ L96].

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive,

compliance with the normative clauses of this standard given in Table ZZ.1 confers, within the limits of

the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding safety objectives of

that Directive, and associated EFTA regulations.

d.c.: 60 V < U ≤ 120 V
For indoor use only.

In accordance with IEC 60364 uninsulated conductors are not allowed in certain special installations and

locations e.g. IEC 60364-7-701 “Locations containing a bath or shower”.

For supply voltages greater than 250 V, higher voltage grade cables and cords than those given in the above

table may be necessary.
Replace the existing fourth paragraph with the following new text:

To provide adequate mechanical strength, the nominal cross-sectional area of the conductors

of external wiring, for example supply cord and inter-connecting cables, shall be not less than

specified in Table 5.3.

IEC 60228 specifies that the requirement associated with nominal conductor cross-section is a maximum

resistance value not a physical measure of the area. For nominal sizes of 0,5 mm2 and above, these values

are listed in the standard. For lower cross-sections the resistance value needs to be calculated accordingly.
