Guide book provides insight into EC 61439 standards

12 November 2013

Rittal has produced Standard-compliant Switchgear and Control Protection, which offers an insight into the new IEC 61439 standards.

It is designed to assist Rittal customers and give guidance on how to comply with the standards. Relating to building of control panels and electrical distribution systems, the IEC 61439 standards will be in force from November 2014 and impact upon the design of the panel, selection of components and the testing methodology.

It will mean that the panel will become a system, which means the designer/panel builder must consider the enclosure, the effects of heat upon the components, cooling equipment, busbar system, mechanical properties and the generation of test documentation, which is a requirement.

A copy is available free of charge of the company.
