General requirements for Home and Building Electronic Systems (HBES) and Building Automation and Control Systems (BACS) - Part 6: Requirements for planning and installation

IEC 63044-6:2021 specifies the requirements for planning and installation of HBES/BACS and the supporting infrastructure. Radio frequency (RF) HBES/BACS are also considered. Safety requirements are covered by IEC 60364 (all parts). Information and communication technology (ICT) and broadcasting and communication technology (BCT) network installations are typically interfaced with HBES/BACS. The requirements for ICT and BCT network installations are covered by ISO/IEC 14763-2. This document does not cover HBES/BACS implementation with: - optical fibre, - power lines, - power over Ethernet (PoE).

L'IEC 63044-6:2021 spécifie les exigences de planification et d'installation de HBES/SGTB et de l'infrastructure support. Les radiofréquences (RF) HBES/SGTB sont également prises en considération. Les exigences de sécurité sont couvertes par la série IEC 60364 (toutes les parties). Les installations de réseau ICT et BCT sont en général interfacées avec HBES/SGBT. Les exigences relatives aux installations de réseau ICT et BCT sont couvertes par l'ISO/IEC 14763-2. Le présent document ne couvre pas la mise en œuvre HBES/SGTB avec: - fibres optiques, - lignes d'énergie, - alimentation électrique par câble Ethernet (PoE).

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.

IEC 63044-6 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 23: Electrical accessories. It is an

International Standard.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:

INTRODUCTION

A HBES/BACS network is part of the home/building network, which includes cabling for

information and communication technology (ICT) and broadcast communication technology

(BCT) applications. ISO/IEC 14763-2 is the specific standard for ICT and BCT cabling

installation and planning.

This document covers installation and planning requirements specific to a HBES/BACS network

in addition to safety requirements for electrical installations included in the IEC 60364 series.

Installation and planning specific requirements include:
– infrastructures for cabling,
– coexistence with electric wiring,
– hints for sensors.

Wireless systems are also considered. Planning the cabled backbone for wireless systems is

less complex compared to a full cabled network pathway, power supply cabling. Additional

provisions are provided to guarantee coverage and reliability.

technology (BCT) network installations are typically interfaced with HBES/BACS.

The requirements for ICT and BCT network installations are covered by ISO/IEC 14763-2.

This document does not cover HBES/BACS implementation with:
– optical fibre,
– power lines,
– power over Ethernet (PoE).

4 Home/building networks
The home/building networks:
– ensure the distribution of services, such as:
• communication,
• HBES/BACS;

– need components such as conduits, boxes, etc. as physical infrastructures for the system.

The implementation of the home/building network goes through the following steps:

– design,
– planning of physical infrastructure,
– installation.

The planning of a common physical infrastructure for HBES/BACS, ICT, and BCT and the

supporting power distribution network is advantageous for the following reasons:
– cost optimization through common works,
– optimization of the pathways,
– planning of common installation spaces for interfacing units,
– simplify the planning of spaces for future updates.

Specific requirements for the planning and the installation of a communication services generic

cabling infrastructure are given in ISO/IEC 14763-2. Requirements for the HBES/BACS physical

infrastructure are given in this document.

HBES/BACS networks can be wired, wireless or a combination of both and require a supporting

physical infrastructure. For example, wireless HBES/BACS are composed of the housing of the

device, the supporting power network, the positioning of interfacing modules, et
...
