What is this standard about?

This part of IEC 61439 defines the specific requirements for distribution boards intended to be operated by ordinary persons (DBO).

DBOs have the following criteria:

– intended to be operated by ordinary persons (e.g. switching operations and replacing fuse-links), e.g. in domestic (household) applications;

– outgoing circuits contain protective devices, intended to be operated by ordinary persons, complying e.g. with IEC 60898-1, IEC 61008, IEC 61009, IEC 62423 and IEC 60269-3;

– rated voltage to earth does not exceed 300 V a.c.;

– rated current (Inc) of the outgoing circuits does not exceed 125 A and the rated current (InA) of the DBO does not exceed 250 A;

– intended for the distribution of electrical energy;

– enclosed, stationary;

– for indoor or outdoor use.
