    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies general safety requirements for electrical test, measuring, control and laboratory equipment used in professional, educational and industrial processes.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1.1 Equipment included in scope This part of IEC 61010 specifies general safety requirements for electrical equipment intended for professional, industrial processes, and educational use, any of which may incorporate computing devices, as defined in a) to d) below, when used under the environmental conditions of 1.4. a) Electrical test and measurement equipment This is 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. NOTE All indicating and recording electrical measuring instruments (except those excluded in 1.1.2) fall within the scope of IEC 61010 unless they are panel meters designed only for building-in to other equipment. Built-in panel meters are considered to be components and only need to meet the relevant requirements of IEC 61010, or other standards, as part of the equipment into which they are built. b) Electrical control equipment This is 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 This is 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 the home. d) Accessories intended for use with the above (for example, sample handling equipment). 1.1.2 Equipment excluded from scope This standard does not apply to equipment within the scope of a) IEC 60065 (Safety requirements for audio, video and similar electronic apparatus); b) IEC 60204 (Controls for electrical machines); c) AS/NZS 60335 (Safety of household and similar electrical appliances); d) IEC 60364 (Electrical installations of buildings); e) IEC 60439-1 (Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies); f) IEC 60521 (Class 0,5; 1 and 2 alternating current watthour meters); g) IEC 60601 (Medical electrical equipment); h) IEC 60950 (Safety of information technology equipment including electrical business equipment, except as specified in 1.1.3); i) IEC 61558 (Power transformers, power supply units and similar). 1.1.3 Computing equipment This standard applies only to computers, processors, etc. which form part of equipment within the scope of this standard or are designed for use exclusively with the equipment. NOTE Computing devices and similar equipment within the scope of IEC 60950 and conforming to its requirements are considered to be suitable for use with equipment within the scope of this standard. However, some of the requirements of IEC 60950 for resistance to moisture and liquids are less stringent than those in this standard. If HAZARDS from moisture or liquids could affect equipment that conforms to IEC 60950 and is used with equipment which conforms to this standard, the instructions for use should specify any additional precautions required.
