1 Scope

1.2 These wire connectors are intended to facilitate the connection of devices, such as prefabricated wiring assemblies, smoke detectors, and lighting products, to the branch circuit conductors of buildings.

1.2A The dimensions of these connectors are not defined in any national or international technical standard, as such, mating connectors are identified and tested with compatible mating part (or parts, if multiple exist) and are to be of the same manufacturer.

1.3 These requirements also cover luminaire disconnects that are used;

a)     internal to luminaires to facilitate replacement of the ballast or LED driver, or

b)     for LED retrofit applications where connected on the line side of the LED driver.

Luminaire disconnects are not to be directly attached to the branch circuit conductors for the purpose of interrupting (making and breaking) branch circuit conductors. Luminaire disconnects may have one or more conductors per contact.

This part of IEC 60974 is applicable to power sources for arc welding and allied processes designed for industrial and professional use, and supplied by a voltage not exceeding 1 000 V, battery supplied or driven by mechanical means.

This document specifies safety and performance requirements of welding power sources and plasma cutting systems.

This document is not applicable to limited duty arc welding and cutting power sources which are designed mainly for use by laymen and designed in accordance with IEC 60974-6.

1DV D2                   Modify 1 by replacing paragraph 3 with the following:

Welding equipment, which has been designed to comply with this standard and is intended for industrial and professional use, and meets all the scope limitations of ANSI/IEC 60974-6 is suitable for use by laymen provided the additional instructions and markings requirements of ANSI/IEC 60974-6 are met.

This document includes requirements for battery-powered welding power sources and battery packs, which are given in Annex O. 

This document is not applicable to testing of power sources during periodic maintenance or after repair.

c) Annex C — Canadian marking translations;

d) Annex E — Seasonal use cord sets; and

e) Annex G — Manufacturing and production tests.

f) Annex H – Marine shore power cable sets

1.9

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1 Scope

[Replace this clause with the following]

This Standard specifies requirements for the design and the erection of electrical power installations (stations) in systems with nominal voltages above 1 kV a.c. and nominal frequency up to and including 60 Hz, so as to provide for safety of persons and proper functioning of the installation.

This Standard applies to indoor substations, generating stations, and fenced outdoor supply stations and substations (including supply substations on customer premises).

For the purpose of interpreting this Standard, an electrical power installation is considered to be one of the following:

(a) a substation, i.e., a closed electrical operating area in a transmission or distribution network; or
(b) one or more generating station(s) located on a single site. The installation includes generators and transformers with all associated switchgear and all electrical auxiliary systems.

Connections between generating stations located on different sites are excluded from the scope of this Standard.

Connections between closed electrical areas (including substations) located on the same site are taken to be part of the installation, except where such connections form part of a transmission or distribution system.

The electrical power installation includes, but is not limited to, the following equipment:

– rotating electrical machines;
– switchgear;
– transformers and reactors;
– converters;
– cables;
– lines;
– wiring systems;
– batteries;
– capacitors;
– earthing systems;
– buildings and fences that are part of a closed electrical operating area;
– associated protection, control, and auxiliary systems; and
– large air-type core reactors.

Note: In general, a Standard for an item of equipment takes precedence over this Standard.

This Standard does not apply to the design and erection of any of the following:

– overhead and underground lines between separate installations;
– pad-mounted tamper-proof enclosed equipment installations;
– underground distribution system installations;
– pole-mounted installations;
– electric railways (but not the substation feeding a railway system);
– mining equipment and installations;
– fluorescent lamp installations;
– installations on ships and off-shore installations;
– electrostatic equipment;
– test sites; or
– medical equipment, e.g., medical x-ray equipment.

This Standard does not apply to the design of factory-built, type-tested switchgear for which separate Standards exist.

The requirements for carrying out live working on electrical installations are beyond the scope of this Standard.
