IEC 62026-7:2010 specifies an interface system providing bit-level and word-level communication between a controller and control circuit devices such as sensors, actuators, and switching elements. The interface system uses cabling with round or flat profiles containing a two conductor signalling pair and optionally a two conductor power supply pair. This part establishes requirements for the interchangeability of components with such interfaces. This standard cancels and replaces IEC/PAS 62026-7 published in 2009. This first edition constitutes a general technical revision with clarifications only and with no significant change in the technology.

IEC 60947-7-2:2009 specifies requirements for protective conductor terminal blocks with PE function up to 120 mm2 (250 kcmil) and for protective conductor terminal blocks with PEN function equal to and above 10 mm2 (AWG 8) with screw-type or screwless-type clamping units, primarily intended for industrial applications. Protective conductor terminal blocks are used to form the electrical and mechanical connection between copper conductors and the fixing support. lt is applicable to protective conductor terminal blocks for the connection of round copper conductors with or without special preparation having a cross-section between 0,2 mm2 and 120 mm2 (AWG 24 and 250 kcmil), intended to be used in circuits of a rated voltage not exceeding 1 000 V a.c. up to 1 000 Hz or 1 500 V d.c., most commonly in conjunction with terminal blocks according to IEC 60947-7-1. This standard may be used as guide for
- protective conductor terminal blocks requiring the fixing of special devices to the conductors, for example quick connect terminations or wrapped connections, etc.;
- protective conductor terminal blocks providing direct contact to the conductors by means of edges or points penetrating the insulation, for example insulation displacement connections, etc.
Where applicable in this standard, the term "clamping unit" has been used instead of the term "terminal". This is taken into account in case of reference to IEC 60947-1. The main technical modifications of this standard since this previous publication are listed below:
- requirements for tightening torques for the tests improved and referenced to Table 4 of IEC 60947-1, Annex B deleted;
- the wording of the short-time withstand current test improved in 8.4.6.
This publication shall be read in conjunction with IEC 60947-1:2007 and IEC 60947-7-1:2009.

IEC 60947-7-3:2009 applies to fuse terminal blocks with screw-type or screwless-type clamping units for the connection of rigid (solid or stranded) or flexible copper conductors for the reception of cartridge fuse-links in accordance with IEC 60127-2, intended primarily for industrial or similar use in circuits not exceeding 1 000 V a.c., up to 1 000 Hz or 1 500 V d.c., and having a maximum short-circuit breaking capacity of 1 500 A. They are intended for installation in electrical equipment with enclosures which surround the fuse terminal blocks to such an extent that they are accessible only with the aid of a tool. For certain applications, for example in control circuits, the fuse terminal blocks may be designed exclusively for short-circuit protection. The object of this standard is to specify safety requirements and test methods for the mechanical, electrical and thermal characteristics of fuse terminal blocks, to ensure the compatibility between terminal blocks and standardized fuse-links. This standard may be used as a guide for
- fuse terminal blocks requiring the fixing of special devices to the conductors, for example quick connect terminations or wrapped connections, etc.;
- fuse terminal blocks providing direct contact to the conductors by means of edges or points penetrating the insulation, for example insulation displacement connections, etc.
Where applicable in this standard, the term "clamping unit" has been used instead of the term "terminal". This is taken into account in case of reference to IEC 60947-1. The main technical modifications of this standard since this previous publication are listed below:
- requirements regarding clearances and creepage distances replaced by reference to Annex H of IEC 60947-1;
- requirements for the test of the mechanical strength of the clamping units improved in 8.3.3.1;
- requirements for tightening torques for the tests improved and referenced to Table 4 of IEC 60947-1;
- requirements for the resistance and the dimensions of dummy fuse-links specified in 8.5.2.5.
This publication shall be read in conjunction with IEC 60947-1:2007 and IEC 60947-7-1:2009.

IEC 60947-7-1:2009 specifies requirements for terminal blocks with screw-type or screwless-type clamping units primarily intended for industrial or similar use and to be fixed to a support to provide electrical and mechanical connection between copper conductors. lt applies to terminal blocks intended to connect round copper conductors, with or without special preparation, having a cross-section between 0,2 mm2 and 300 mm2 (AWG 24/600 kcmil), intended to be used in circuits of a rated voltage not exceeding 1 000 V a.c. up to 1 000 Hz or 1 500 V d.c. This standard may be used as a guide for
- terminal blocks requiring the fixing of special devices to the conductors, for example quick connect terminations or wrapped connections, etc.;
- terminal blocks providing direct contact to the conductors by means of edges or points penetrating the insulation, for example insulation displacement connections, etc.;
- special types of terminal blocks, for example with diodes or varistors or similar component holders, etc.
Where applicable in this standard, the term "clamping unit" has been used instead of the term "terminal". This is taken into account in case of reference to IEC 60947-1. The main technical modifications of this standard since this previous publication are listed below:
- added in the scope that this standard may be used as a guide for special types of terminal blocks, for example with diodes or varistors or similar component holders;
- the conventional free air thermal current added in 5.2 in the list of information to be stated by the manufacturer;
- update of 7.1.4 that the colour combination green-yellow is not allowed for terminal blocks;
- the consequences in case of failed single tests and failed tests within test sequences specified in 8.2;
- requirements regarding clearances and creepage distances replaced by reference to Annex H of IEC 60947-1, Annex A deleted;
- requirements for tightening torques for the tests improved and referenced to Table 4 of IEC 60947-1, Annex C deleted;
- in 8.3.3.3 changed reference for pull-out force to IEC 60947-1;
- the wording of the test of the voltage drop improved in 8.4.4;
- the wording of the short-time withstand current test improved in 8.4.6;
- Annex D with additional requirements for test disconnect terminal blocks added. The scope modified accordingly.

The IEC 61915 series is intended to improve interoperability of devices, network tools and application software. This part of IEC 61915 defines a framework for common representation of networked industrial devices and provides a template for documenting such a representation, independent of the network used. This framework follows the principles given in IEC/TR 62390, the "Common automation device - Profile guideline", and refers to ISO 15745, "Industrial automation systems and integration - Open systems application integration framework". This first edition cancels and replaces the IEC/TS 61915 technical specification published in 2003. It now has the status of an International Standard.
