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.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

INTRODUCTION

IEC 61010-1 specifies the safety requirements that are generally applicable to all equipment

within its scope. For certain types of equipment, the requirements of IEC 61010-1 will be

supplemented or modified by the special requirements of one, or more than one, particular

part 2‘s of the standard which must be read in conjunction with the Part 1 requirements.

This Part 2-033 specifies the safety requirements for HAND HELD METERS that have a primary

purpose of measuring voltage on a live MAINS CIRCUIT.

Part 2-032 specifies the safety requirements that are generally applicable to HAND-HELD and

hand-manipulated current sensors.

Part 2-030 specifies the safety requirements for testing and measuring circuits which are

connected for test or measurement purposes to devices or circuits outside the measurement

equipment itself.

VOLTMETER and similar equipment that are not within the scope of Part 2-033 are considered

to be covered by the requirements of Part 2-030 or Part 2-032. But for equipment within the

scopes of both Part 2-032 and Part 2-033, the two standards must be read in conjunction.

NOTE The 1,9 multiplication factor is derived from phase-to-phase voltage measurements with a 10 %

overvoltage condition.
5 Marking and documentation
This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows:
5.1.2 Identification
Addition:
Add the following note after the existing note:

NOTE 101 Some national regulations might require a marking to indicate the name and edition of the standard

used for compliance evaluation.
5.1.5 TERMINALS, connections, and operating devices
5.1.5.1 General
Replacement:
Replace the first paragraph with the following:
TERMINALS, connectors,
If necessary for safety, an indication shall be given of the purpose of

controls, and indicators. Where there is insufficient space, symbol 14 from Table 1 may be

used.
5.1.5.2 TERMINALS
Replacement:
Replace existing item d) with the following item d):

TERMINALS supplied from the interior of the equipment or from other TERMINALS and which

could be HAZARDOUS LIVE, with the voltage, current, charge or energy value or range, or

with symbol 12 of Table 1.
Addition:
Add the following new subclause:
5.1.5.101 Measuring circuit TERMINALS

Measuring circuit TERMINALS shall be marked with the value of the RATED voltage to earth.

Each pair or set of measuring circuit TERMINALS that are intended to be used together shall be

RATED voltage or the RATED current as applicable to the pair or
marked with the value of the
set of TERMINALS.

NOTE Measuring circuit TERMINALS are usually arranged in pairs or sets. Each pair or set of TERMINALS may have

a RATED voltage or a RATED current, or both, within that set, and each individual TERMINAL will have a RATED voltage

to earth. For some equipment, the measurement RATED voltage (between TERMINALS) is different from the RATED

voltage to earth.

Measuring circuit TERMINALS RATED for MAINS CIRCUITS voltage measurements shall be

additionally marked “CAT lll” or “CAT IV” as applicable.

Measuring circuit TERMINALS that do not have a RATING for connection to voltages above the

levels of 6.3.1, may be marked with alternative markings.

Measuring circuit TERMINALS which are dedicated only for connection to specific TERMINALS of

other equipment need not be marked, provided that there is a means for identifying these

TERMINALS.

TERMINALS markings shall be visible when the equipment is ready for NORMAL USE with

connectors and TERMINALS mated and shall reference the applicable TERMINALS.
Conformity is checked by inspection.
5.2 Warning markings
Replacement:
Replace the existing text with the following text:

Warning markings specified in 5.1.5.2 d), 6.1.2 b), 6.6.2, 7.3.2 b) 3), 7.4, 10.1, and 13.2.2

shall meet the following requirements.

Warning markings shall be visible when the equipment is ready for NORMAL USE. If a warning

applies to a particular part of the equipment, the marking shall be placed on or near the part.

The size of warning markings shall be as follows.

a) Symbols shall be at least 2,75 mm high. Text shall be at least 1,5 mm high and contrast in

colour with the background.

b) Symbols or text moulded, stamped or engraved in a material shall be at least 2,0 mm

high. If not contrasting in colour, they shall have a depth or raised height of at least

0,5 mm.

If it is necessary for the RESPONSIBLE BODY or OPERATOR to refer to the instruction manual to

preserve the protection afforded by the equipment, the equipment shall be marked with

symbol 14 of Table 1. Symbol 14 is not required to be used with symbols which are explained

in the manual.

If the instructions for use state that an OPERATOR is permitted to gain access, using a TOOL, to

a part which in NORMAL USE may be HAZARDOUS LIVE, there shall be a warning marking which

states that the equipment must be isolated or disconnected from the HAZARDOUS LIVE voltage

before access.
