IEC 60445:2021 pdf free download Basic and safety principles for man-machine interface, marking and identification – Identification of equipment terminals, conductor terminations and conductors
1 Scope
This document applies to the identification and marking of terminals of electrical equipmentsuch as resistors,fuses,relays,contactors,transformers,rotating machines and,whereverapplicable, to combinations of such equipment (e.g. assemblies), and it also applies to theidentification of terminations of certain designated conductors. lt also provides general rules forthe use of certain colours or alphanumeric notations to identify conductors with the aim ofavoiding ambiguity and ensuring safe operation.These conductor colours and alphanumericnotations are intended to be applied on cores, busbars, and electrical equipment, and in cablesor installations.
This basic safety publication focusing on safety essential requirements is primarily intended foruse by technical committees in the preparation of standards in accordance with the principleslaid down in IEC Guide 104 and lsonEc Guide 51.
lt is not intended for use by manufacturers or certification bodies. One of the responsibilities ofa technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in thepreparation of its publications. The requirements of this basic safety publication will not applyunless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.
