Automatic electrical controls. Particular requirements for timers and time switches

Status : Current   Published : May 2020



IEC 60730-2-7:2015(E) applies to timers and time switches for household and similar use that may use electricity, gas, oil, solid fuel, solar thermal energy, etc. or a combination thereof, including heating, air conditioning and similar applications. This standard is also applicable to individual timers utilized as part of a control system or timers which are mechanically integral with multifunctional controls having non-electrical outputs. This standard does not apply to time-delay switches (TDS) within the scope of IEC 60669-2-3. This standard applies to the inherent safety, to the operating characteristics where such are associated with equipment protection and to the testing of timers used in appliances and other apparatus, electrical and non-electrical, for household and similar purposes, but also extended to industrial purposes when no dedicated product standards exist, such as that for central heating, air conditioning, process heating, etc. Timers for equipment not intended for normal household use, but which nevertheless may be used by the public, such as equipment intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, are within the scope of this standard. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2008. This third edition constitutes a technical revision. This new edition revises the compliance criteria of type 1.S and 2.S action, revises the requirements for filament lamp loads, adds requirements for abnormal operation in Annex H, removes some special requirements for single countries as well as updates the standard to IEC 60730-1:2010, fourth edition. Key words: Timers, Time Switches
