    Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear - Part 1: General rules


    The purpose of this standard is to harmonize as far as practicable all rules and requirements of a general nature applicable to low-voltage switchgear and controlgear in order to obtain uniformity of requirements and tests throughout the corresponding range of equipment and to avoid the need for testing to different standards. All those parts of the various equipment standards which can be considered as general have therefore been gathered in this standard together with specific subjects of wide interest and application, e.g. temperature-rise, dielectric properties, etc. For each type of low-voltage switchgear and controlgear, only two main documents are necessary to determine all requirements and tests: 1) this basic standard, referred to as "Part 1" in the specific standards covering the various types of low-voltage switchgear and controlgear; 2) the relevant equipment standard hereinafter referred to as the "relevant product standard" or "product standard". For a general rule to apply to a specific product standard, it shall be explicitly referred to by the latter, by quoting the relevant clause or subclause number of this standard followed by "IEC 60947-1" e.g. "7.2.3 of IEC 60947-1". A specific product standard may not require, and hence may omit, a general rule (as being not applicable), or it may add to it (if deemed inadequate in the particular case), but it may not deviate from it, unless there is a substantial technical justification. NOTE The product standards forming the series of IEC standards covering low-voltage switchgear and controlgear are: IEC 60947-2: Part 2: Circuit-breakers IEC 60947-3: Part 3: Switches, disconnectors, switch-disconnectors and fuse combination units IEC 60947-4: Part 4: Contactors and motor-starters IEC 60947-5: Part 5: Control-circuit devices and switching elements IEC 60947-6: Part 6: Multiple function equipment IEC 60947-7: Part 7: Ancillary equipment IEC 60947-8: Part 8: Control units for built-in thermal protection (PTC) for rotating electrical machines.
