IEC 60728-11:2023 is available as IEC 60728-11:2023 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.IEC 60728-11:2023 deals with the safety requirements applicable to fixed sited systems and equipment. As far as applicable, it is also valid for mobile and temporarily installed systems, for example, caravans. Additional requirements may be applied, for example, referring to:
- electrical installations of buildings and overhead lines,
- other telecommunication services distribution systems,
- water distribution systems,
- gas distribution systems,
- lightning systems.
This document is intended to provide requirements specifically for the safety of the system, personnel working on it, subscribers and subscriber equipment. It deals only with safety aspects and is not intended to define a standard for the protection of the equipment used in the system. IEC 60728-11:2023 cancels and replaces the fourth edition published in 2016. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition.
