Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use - Part 2-201: Particular requirements for control equipment (IEC 61010-2-201:2017)

This part of IEC 61010 specifies safety requirements and related verification tests for any
product performing the function of control equipment and/or their associated peripherals.
In addition, these products have as their intended use the command and control of
machines, automated manufacturing and industrial processes, e.g. discrete and
continuous control. Some equipment examples are: programmable logic controller (PLC);
• programmable automation controller (PAC);
• distributed control systems (DCS);
• remote I/O;
• industrial PC (computers) and panel PC;
• programming and debugging tools (PADTs);
• displays and human-machine interfaces (HMI);
• positioners.
Components of the above named equipment and in the scope of this standard are:
• (auxiliary) stand-alone power supplies;
• peripherals such as digital and analogue I/O, remote-I/O;
• industrial network equipment.
Control equipment and their associated peripherals are intended to be used in an industrial
environment and may be provided as OPEN or ENCLOSED EQUIPMENT.

NEW!IEC 61010-2-201:2017 est disponible sous forme de IEC 61010-2-201:2017 RLV qui contient la Norme internationale et sa version Redline, illustrant les modifications du contenu technique depuis l'édition précédente.L'IEC 61010-2-201:2017 spécifie les exigences de sécurité et les essais de vérification associés pour les produits remplissant la fonction d'équipements de commande et/ou leurs périphériques associés. L'utilisation prévue de ces produits consiste à contrôler et commander les machines, les processus industriels et de fabrication automatisés, par exemple par le biais d'un contrôle discret et continu. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2013. Cette édition constitue une révision technique.Cette deuxième édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: a) clarification, modification et suppression des définitions sources de confusion, b) modification et clarification de la méthode d'essai des températures, c) modification des méthodologies de documentation admises, d) modification de quelques marquages de BORNES, e) clarification de certaines annexes informatives, f) ajout de l'Annexe E qui a elle-même fait l'objet de modifications, g) ajout des Annexes AA à FF.

Varnostne zahteve za električno opremo za meritve, nadzorovanje in laboratorijsko uporabo - 2-201. del: Posebne zahteve za opremo za nadzor in upravljanje (IEC 61010-2-201:2017)

Ta del standarda IEC 61010 določa varnostne zahteve in z njimi povezane preskuse preverjanja za kateri koli proizvod, ki deluje kot oprema za nadzor ter upravljanje, in/ali z njim povezane periferne naprave.
Poleg tega je predvideni namen uporabe teh proizvodov upravljanje in nadzor strojev ter avtomatiziranih proizvodnih in industrijskih procesov, npr. diskreten in neprekinjen nadzor. Nekateri primeri opreme: programirljivi logični krmilnik (PLC);
• programirljivi avtomatizacijski krmilnik (PAC);
• porazdeljeni nadzorni sistemi (DCS);
• daljinski I/O;
• industrijski osebni računalniki in panelni osebni računalniki;
• orodja za programiranje in iskanje napak (PADT);
• zasloni in vmesniki človek-stroj (HMI);
• naprave za pozicioniranje.
Komponente zgoraj omenjene opreme, ki spadajo na področje uporabe tega standarda, so:
• (pomožni) samostojni električni napajalniki;
• periferne naprave, kot so digitalni in analogni I/O ter daljinski I/O;
• industrijska omrežna oprema.
Oprema za nadzor in upravljanje ter z njo povezane periferne naprave so namenjene uporabi v industrijskem okolju in so lahko na voljo kot ODPRTA ali ZAPRTA OPREMA.

Annex ZZ
(informative)
Relationship between this European standard and the safety
objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU [2014 OJ L96] aimed to be
covered

This European Standard has been prepared under a Commission’s standardization request relating to

harmonized standards in the field of the Low Voltage Directive, M/511, to provide one voluntary means

of conforming to safety objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the

Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonization of the laws of the Member States relating to the

making available on the market of electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits

[2014 OJ L96].

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive,

compliance with the normative clauses of this standard given in Table ZZ.1 confers, within the limits of

the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding safety objectives of

that Directive, and associated EFTA regulations.

Annex ZZ
(informative)
Relationship between this European standard and the safety
objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU [2014 OJ L96] aimed to be
covered

This European Standard has been prepared under a Commission’s standardization request relating to

harmonized standards in the field of the Low Voltage Directive, M/511, to provide one voluntary means

of conforming to safety objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the

Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonization of the laws of the Member States relating to the

making available on the market of electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits

[2014 OJ L96].

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive,

compliance with the normative clauses of this standard given in Table ZZ.1 confers, within the limits of

the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding safety objectives of

that Directive, and associated EFTA regulations.
