Mechanical structures for electronic equipment - Tests for IEC 60917 and IEC 60297 series - Part 1: Environmental requirements, test set-up and safety aspects for cabinets, racks, subracks and chassis under indoor condition use and transportation

IEC 61587-1:2016: specifies environmental requirements, test set-up, as well as safety aspects for empty enclosures, i.e., cabinets, racks, subracks, chassis with an integrated subrack, and associated plug-in units under indoor condition use and transportation. The purpose of this standard is to establish defined levels of physical performance in order to meet certain requirements of storage, transport and final location conditions. It applies in whole or part only to the mechanical structures of cabinets, racks, subracks, chassis with an integrated subrack, and associated plug-in units, but it does not apply to electronic equipment. This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 2011. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: total overhaul of Clause 7 "Mechanical tests" and compatibility with IEC 61587-5. Key words: Indoor use, Transportation Requirements, Cabinets, Racks, Chassis Racks

Structures mécaniques pour équipement électronique - Essais pour les séries IEC 60917 et IEC 60297 - Partie 1: Exigences environnementales, montage d’essai et aspects liés à la sécurité des baies, bâtis, bacs à cartes et châssis dans des conditions d’utilisation intérieure ou de transport

L'IEC 61587-1:2016 spécifie les exigences environnementales, le montage d'essai, ainsi que les aspects liés à la sécurité des enveloppes vides, c'est-à-dire des baies, bâtis, bacs à cartes, châssis avec un bac à cartes intégré et unités enfichables associées dans des conditions d'utilisation intérieure ou de transport. L'objet de la présente norme est d'établir des niveaux définis de performances physiques, afin de satisfaire à certaines exigences de stockage, de transport et de conditions d'emplacement final. Elle ne s'applique totalement ou partiellement qu'aux structures mécaniques des baies, bâtis, bacs à cartes, châssis avec un bac à cartes intégré et unités enfichables associées, mais elle ne s'applique pas aux équipements électroniques. Cette quatrième édition annule et remplace la troisième édition parue en 2011 dont elle constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: Révision complète de l'Article 7 "Essais mécaniques" ; Compatibilité avec l'IEC 61587-5. Mots clés: utilisation intérieure, exigences de transport, baies, bâtis, châssis

Mehanske strukture za električno in elektronsko opremo - Preskušanje za seriji IEC 60917 in IEC 60297 - 1. del: Okoljevarstvene zahteve in preskusi, varnostni vidiki za ohišja, stojala, okvire in ogrodja v notranjih pogojih (IEC 61587-1:2016)

Ta del standarda IEC 61587 določa okoljevarstvene zahteve, preskuse ter varnostne vidike za prazne okrove, tj. ohišja, stojala, okvire, ogrodja z vgrajenim okvirom, in povezane vtične enote v notranjih pogojih uporabe in transporta.
Namen tega standarda je vzpostaviti opredeljene ravni fizičnega delovanja za izpolnjevanje določenih zahtev v zvezi s pogoji shranjevanja, transporta in končne lokacije. V celoti ali v delih se uporablja le za mehanske strukture ohišij, stojal, okvirov, ogrodij z vgrajenim okvirom in povezane vtične enote, vendar se ne uporablja za elektronsko opremo.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.
