Contains a presentation of the graphical symbols with the corresponding descriptions in numerical order which does not necessarily represent any functional grouping. It is complemented by an alphabetical index and a graphical survey of the symbols. Additional information is provided to the user by classifications to form and function, and the examples of application. IEC 60417-1 and 60417-2 cancel and replace IEC 60417 and all its supplements.
This part of IEC 60417 contains graphical symbols and their meaning (title and description). The graphical symbols in the standard are primarily intended
to identify the equipment or a part of the equipment (for example a control or display);
to indicate functional states or functions (for example: on, off, alarm);
to designate connections (for example terminals, filling points for materials);
to provide information on packaging (for example identification of content, instructions for handling);
to provide instruction for the operation of the equipment (for example limitations of use).
This part 1 provides reference information to help users find appropriate graphical symbols.
This part is not intended for reproduction purposes.
The graphical symbols specified in this standard are not primarily intended for
use on drawings and diagrams;
use in technical documentation of products and in technical product documentation.
In the case of the use of graphical symbols as safety signs, the rules specified in ISO 3864 prevail.
