AUTOMATIC ELECTRICAL CONTROLS –
Part 2-6: Particular requirements for automatic electrical
pressure sensing controls including mechanical requirements
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 60730-2-6 has been prepared IEC technical committee 72:

Automatic electrical controls.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2007. This edition

constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical

changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) aligns the text with IEC 60730-1, Edition 5;
b) modifies requirements for Class B control function (H.27.1.2.2);
c) modifies requirements for Class C control function (H.27.1.2.3);
d) modifies requirements for faults during lock-out or safety- shut-down.

– 1,25 times the full load current of the largest motor plus the full load amperes of the other loads;

– 1,0 times all other loads.
11 Constructional requirements
This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows:
11.4 Actions
Additional subclause:
11.4.101 Type 2.N action

A Type 2.N action shall be so designed that in the event of a leak in the sensing element, or

in any other part between the sensing element and the switch head, the declared

disconnection or interruption is provided before the sum of the declared operating pressure

and drift is exceeded.
Compliance is checked by the following test:

The operating pressure of a Type 2.N control shall be measured under the conditions of

Clause 15 of Part 1. If the control has means for setting, it shall be set to the highest value.

After this measurement, a hole is artificially produced in the sensing element and the

measurement of the operating pressure is repeated.
No positive drift is allowed beyond the declared value.

A separate shroud or sleeve may be employed for protection of the sensing element to

achieve conformance with Clause 18.

NOTE The test can be replaced by theoretical computations of the physical mode of operation.
