Control technology - Rules for the designation of measuring instruments

This International Standard is applicable to measurement technology. It defines rules for the unambiguous designation of different types of measuring instruments and of measuring instrument features with the intention of enabling unambiguous technical communication over language boundaries.

Leittechnik - Regeln für die Benennung von Messgeräten

Technologies de contrôle-commande - Règles pour la désignation des instruments de mesure

L'IEC 62419:2008 s'applique à la technologie de mesure. Elle définit les règles pour une désignation claire des différents types d'instruments de mesure et des caractéristiques des instruments de mesure, dans le but de permettre une communication technique dénuée d'ambiguïté au-delà des barrières linguistiques. La présente norme annule et remplace la CEI/PAS 62419 parue en 2005. Cette première édition constitue une révision technique. La présente version bilingue (2014-04) correspond à la version anglaise monolingue publiée en 2008-11.

RULES FOR THE DESIGNATION OF MEASURING INSTRUMENTS
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 provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

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.

International Standard IEC 62419 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 65:

Industrial-process measurement, control and automation.

This standard cancels and replaces IEC/PAS 62419 published in 2005. This first edition

constitutes a technical revision.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
65/429/FDIS 65/430/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the maintenance result date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in

the data related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be

• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

INTRODUCTION

The state of science concerning quantities and units has undergone significant changes in the

last century. During the period from 1920 to 1960 there was a fundamental change in the

comprehension and usage of physical quantities, which was particularly promoted by the

works of Julius Wallot published between 1922 and 1953. In this process the various systems

of physical units and the usage of numerical equations were replaced by the SI-units (see ISO

1000) and the usage of quantity equations. So the quantities were no longer linked to certain

units.

This development culminated in the publishing of the first edition of the German standard DIN

1313 Notation of physical equations in sciences and technology in 1931 and the resolutions of

the tenth general conference of weights and measures in 1954. Since then it has been

considered incorrect to address a quantity by its unit.

In view of this, measuring instruments should not be addressed by the unit of the measured

quantity but only by the measured quantity or the measuring task itself.

Referring to the question of market relevance, it must be stated, that especially with respect

to the international project of standardized classification and documentation in multilingual

equipment descriptions, it is important to critically address the situation regarding the

designation of measuring instruments. Ideally, every manufacturer should use the same

terminology. In practice, there is confusion in the proper designation of measuring instruments

within catalogues and sales brochures which also has consequences in technical literature.

It is not the intention of this standard to enforce particular usages in any language but to

make recommendations that remove the linguistic confusion in this field – or at least, reduce

it. Considering the urgent necessity of unambiguous technical communication over language

boundaries, this is a legitimate goal. This could also be considered to be a matter of global

importance.
