EN 60239:2005 - 2 -
The text of document 27/464/FDIS, future edition 4 of IEC 60239, prepared by IEC TC 27, Industrial
electroheating equipment, was submitted to the IEC-CENELEC parallel vote and was approved by
CENELEC as EN 60239 on 2005-07-01.
This European Standard supersedes EN 60239:1997.
Significant technical changes with respect to EN 60239:1997 are as follows:
– addition of 750 mm nominal diameter electrodes;
– revision of electrode diameter and length tolerances;
– revision of nominal lengths and diameters;
– introduction of socket and pin tolerances;
– revision of Annex A on male-female electrodes;
– addition of Annex B on handling and jointing.
This new edition also aims at a better compatibility between EN 60239 and other technical standards
that cover the same subject, as well as better compliance with standards for figures, tables and
symbols – in that respect, and in addition to the content, the format and the title of this standard have
been modified.
The following dates were fixed:
– latest date by which the EN has to be implemented
at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement (dop) 2006-04-01
– latest date by which the national standards conflicting
with the EN have to be withdrawn (dow) 2008-07-01
