Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use - Part 1: General requirements

Executive summary

General safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use.


This European Standard, a part of the IEC 61010 series, specifies general safety requirements for electrical equipment intended for professional, industrial process, and educational use, any of which may incorporate computing devices such as:

a) electrical test and measurement equipment which by electrical means tests, measures, indicates or records one or more electrical or non-electrical quantities, also non-measuring equipment such as signal generators, measurement standards, power supplies, transducers, transmitters, etc.;

b) electrical control equipment which controls one or more output quantities to specific values, with each value determined by manual setting, by local or remote programming, or by one or more input variables;

c) electrical laboratory equipment which measures, indicates, monitors or analyses substances, or is used to prepare materials, and includes in vitro diagnostic (IVD) equipment; this equipment may also be used in areas other than laboratories, for example self-test IVD equipment may be used in home;

d) accessories intended for use with the above (for example, sample-handling equipment).

This Standard ensures design and construction methods which provide adequate protection for the operator and surrounding area against:

a) electric shock or burn;

b) mechanical hazards;

c) excessive temperature;

d) spread of fire from the equipment;

e) effects of fluids and fluid pressure;

f) effects of radiation, including lasers sources, and sonic and ultrasonic pressure;

g) liberated gases, explosion and implosion.
