IEC TS 62966-3:2021 defines the requirements for operational and personal safety of aisle containments for IT cabinets.
The aim is to provide physical security for the IT equipment installed in the containment using the criteria “availability” and “safety”.
The requirements apply to all operational, working and maintenance procedures.
This document does not apply to ordinary persons, when using installations and equipment.
The requirements described herein are also intended to ensure that it is possible for authorized personnel to enter and remain in the containment (as accessible equipment) and to maintain or upgrade the systems installed in the containment without risk. It should also be possible to evacuate the containment quickly and safely at any time, especially in the event of a fire or any other hazardous situation, whilst reducing the health risk to personnel to a minimum.
Aspects relating to computing, data processing, data storage, building protection or the data centre itself do not fall within the scope of this document. Only those additional aspects arising from the integration of an aisle containment are considered.
The design and positioning of an aisle containment, which is integrated in the data centre, has influence on the following different aspects of operational safety:
a) escape and evacuation plans;
b) escape routes;
c) emergency exits;
d) functional aspects of escape doors;
e) lighting conditions
f) lighting and signposting of escape routes;
g) fire protection.
In this document, these operational safety requirements and recommendations are considered.
To achieve the highest effectiveness, all these requirements are considered as much as possible during the design of an aisle containment.
This document applies to normal operations, not to the initial installation of the containment.

IEC 61076-2-012:2020 specifies circular connectors with an inner push‑pull locking mechanism of a size derived from and thus being compatible with M12 screw‑locking connectors and with mating interfaces according to IEC 61076‑2‑101, IEC 61076‑2‑109, IEC 61076‑2‑111 and IEC 61076‑2‑113.
A female fixed connector with inner push-pull locking according to this document is intermateable with a correspondingly coded male free connector with M12 screw-locking according to IEC 61076-2-101, IEC 61076-2-109, IEC 61076-2-111 or IEC 61076-2-113.
This document covers both:
a) power connectors with current ratings up to 16 A and voltage ratings up to 630 V, typically used for power supply of electrical equipment used in industrial premises, and
b) connectors for data and signal transmission with frequencies up to 500 MHz.
These connectors consist of both fixed and free connectors, either rewirable or non‑rewirable, with M12 inner push‑pull locking as explained above. Male connectors have round contacts from Ø0,6 mm up to Ø1,5 mm.
This document covers various types of connectors identified by their "codings" with different contact arrangement, not mutually interchangeable.
The design of the inner push‑pull mechanism prevents the unintended mating of the male inner push‑pull free connector with the female connector with M12 screw‑locking even for identical coding.
Some styles of free connectors with female contacts covered in this document are equipped with both inner and outer push-pull locking for intermateability also with correspondingly coded male fixed or free connectors according to IEC 61076-2-010.
