Switches for appliances - Part 2-5: Particular requirements for change-over selectors (IEC 61058-2-5:2018)

This Part of IEC 61058 applies to change-over selectors (mechanical or electronic) for
appliances actuated by hand, by foot or by other human activity, to operate or control
electrical appliances and other equipment for household or similar purposes with a rated
voltage not exceeding 480 V and a rated current not exceeding 63 A.
These change-over selectors are intended to be operated by a person, via an actuating
member or by actuating a sensing unit. The actuating member or sensing unit can be integral
with or arranged separately, either physically or electrically, from the switch, and can involve
transmission of a signal, for example electrical, optical, acoustic or thermal, between the
actuating member or sensing unit and the switch.
Change-over selectors which incorporate additional control functions governed by the switch
function are within the scope of this document.
This document also covers the indirect actuation of the switch when the operation of the
actuating member or sensing unit is provided by a remote control or a part of an appliance or
equipment such as a door.
NOTE 1 Electronic change-over selectors can be combined with mechanical change-over selectors giving full
disconnection or micro-disconnection.
NOTE 2 Electronic change-over selectors without a mechanical switch in the supply circuit provide only electronic
disconnection. Therefore, the circuit on the load side is always considered to be live.
NOTE 3 For change-over selectors used in tropical climates, additional requirements can apply.
NOTE 4 Attention is drawn to the fact that the standards for appliances can contain additional or alternative
requirements for change-over selectors.
NOTE 5 Throughout this document, the word "appliance" means "appliance or equipment".
This document applies to change-over selectors intended to be incorporated in, on, or with an
appliance.
This document also applies to change-over selectors incorporating electronic devices.

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
