LIVE WORKING –
SADDLES, STICK CLAMPS AND THEIR ACCESSORIES
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.

International Standard IEC 61236 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 78: Live

working.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1993. It constitutes a

technical revision.

It includes the following significant technical changes from the previous edition:

– clarification of the requirements and of the test provisions;
– addition of a test for the durability of marking;

– application of conformity assessment for products having completed the production phase,

according to IEC 61318:2007 (Ed. 3).

5 Tests
5.1 General

This standard provides testing provisions to demonstrate compliance of the product with the

requirements of Clause 4. These testing provisions are primarily intended to be used as type

tests for validation of the design input. Where relevant, alternative means (calculation,

examination, tests, etc.), are specified within the test subclauses for the purpose of saddles,

stick clamps and their accessories having completed the production phase.

To show compliance with this standard, the manufacturer shall prove that the type tests have

been carried out successfully on at least three devices for each type.

However, when the differences between several types of device are limited in number, tests

that are unaffected by the differing characteristics of the devices can be carried out on a

single type of device, and the results can be used for the other device types.

The different type tests, and the order in which these tests are performed are given in

Annex B.

The tests in Tables B.1, B.2, B.3 and B.4 of Annex B shall be performed, following the

specified order.

NOTE In Tables B.1, B.2, B.3 and B.4 the numbers within parentheses provide reference to the Subclause where

the relevant test is explained. For some families of devices, columns are divided in sub-columns equal to the

number of mechanical tests to be applied to these devices (these may be destructive). These sub-columns also

show the sequence of tests to be applied (for an example see Table B.5).

Any device failing to pass any one of the tests mentioned in Tables B.1, B.2, B.3 and B.4 of

Annex B shall result in the design being rejected.
5.2 Visual and functional inspection

Each device shall be visually inspected to detect manufacturing defaults and to check proper

functioning.
---------------------- Page: 16 ----------------------
SIST EN 61236:2011
61236 © IEC:2010 – 11 –
The test shall be considered as passed if each device shows compliance with the
requirements included in 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6 where applicable.
5.3 Dimensional check

Each device shall be measured to ensure that its dimensions match the manufacturer’s rated

dimensions.
5.4 Durability of marking

The durability of the marking shall be verified by thoroughly cleaning the marking for at least

1 min with a piece of lint-free cloth dampened with water and then rubbing it vigorously for a

further minimum of 1 min with a piece of lint-free cloth dampened with isopropanol (CH -

CH(OH)-CH ).

NOTE 1 It is the employer’s duty to ensure that any relevant legislation and any specific safety instructions

regarding the use of isopropanol are fully observed.

The test shall be considered as passed if the marking remains legible and the letters do not

smear.
