Reference EN 60065:1993
Title Safety requirements for mains operated electronic and related apparatus for household and similar general use
Project Number 2752
Abstract/Scope This standard applies to the following apparatus that is to be connected to the supply mains, either directly or indirectly, intended for domestic and similar general indoor use and not subject to dripping or splashing. Equipment explicitly mentioned in the scope of EN 60050 is not covered by this standard. Attention is drawn to the fact that there are additional requirements in EN 41003 for apparatus to be connected to telecommunication networks. This standard applies to apparatus for use at altitudes up to 2000 m. This standard does not apply to apparatus designed for a rated supply voltage exceeding: 433 V (r.m.s.) between phases in the case of apparatus for three-phase supply and 250 V (r.m.s.) in all other cases. This standard is concerned with safety only and not with the other properties of the apparatus (see Clause 3).
