Standard history

This document applies to empty enclosures, as provided by the enclosure manufacturer, prior to the incorporation of switchgear and controlgear components by the assembly manufacturer.
This document specifies general definitions, classifications, characteristics and test requirements of enclosures to be used as part of switchgear and controlgear assemblies (e.g. in accordance with the product standard in the IEC 61439 series), the rated voltage of which
does not exceed 1 000 V AC or 1 500 V DC, and suitable for general use for either indoor or outdoor applications.
NOTE 1 Additional requirements could apply for specific applications.
NOTE 2 Empty enclosures according to this document are suitable for mounting of electrical components.
This document does not apply to enclosures which are covered by other specific products standards (e.g. IEC 60670-24).
Compliance with the safety requirements of the applicable product standard for the final product
produced using an empty enclosure is the responsibility of the assembly manufacturer.
NOTE 3 This document could serve as a basis for other technical committees.
