Add the following new text:

This standard applies to controls powered by primary or secondary batteries, requirements

for which are contained within the standard, including Annex V.
Add the following new subclauses:

1.1.9 This standard applies to the electrical and functional safety of controls capable of

receiving and responding to communications signals, including signals for power billing rate

and demand response.

The signals may be transmitted to or received from external units being part of the control

(wired), or to and from external units which are not part of the control (wireless) under test.

1.1.10 This standard does not address the integrity of the output signal to the network

devices, such as interoperability with other devices unless it has been evaluated as part of

the control system.
1.2 Normative references
Add the following references:

IEC 62151, Safety of equipment electrically connected to a telecommunication network

IEC 62368-1, Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment – Part 1:

Safety requirements
2 Terms and definitions
2.13 Miscellaneous definitions
Add the following new definitions:
smart grid
intelligent grid

electric power system that utilizes information exchange and control technologies,

distributed computing and associated sensors and actuators, for purposes such as:

– to integrate the behaviour and actions of the network users and other stakeholders,

– to efficiently deliver sustainable, economic and secure electricity supplies
[SOURCE: IEC 60050-617:2011-10, 617-04-13]
smart enabled control

control that is intended to interact with the smart grid and allows certain functions related to

power billing rate or power demand response to be remotely controlled or enabled generally

by communication with the power utility or by user remote interface
Note 1 to entry: For example, remote interface includes computer or smart phone.

Information which is indicated as being required by marking (C) or by documentation (D,E)

shall also be provided for the testing authority in an agreed manner if so requested by the

testing authority.
Replace the existing text by the following:

For controls submitted in, on or with an equipment, the requirement for documentation (D,E)

is replaced by declaration (X).
Replace the existing text by the following:

The requirement for documentation (D,E) is considered to be met if such information has been

provided by marking (C).
Replace the existing text by the following:

The requirement for declaration (X) is considered to be met if such information has been

provided by either documentation (D,E) or by marking (C).
Replace the second and third sentences by the following:

Unless otherwise indicated in a part 2, for incorporated controls, the only marking required

type 2 action control nor interfere with any protective function of the control.

A smart enabled control is permitted to alter the operating parameters of a type 2 control

within defined limits so long as the protective functions remain intact. A smart enabled control that integrates operating and protective functions shall

be evaluated as a protective control. Any transmitter or communication module that is external to the control and acts

as the interface between the control and the telecommunication network shall comply with

IEC 62151 or IEC 62368-1. Nevertheless the measures to ensure protection against electric

shock in this standard (e.g. Annex T) shall be met. Any transmitter or communication module that is part of the smart enabled
