Title Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use - Part 2-201: Particular requirements for control equipment
Project Number 23626
Abstract/Scope IEC 61010-2-201:2013 specifies the complete safety requirements for control equipment (e.g. programmable controller (PLC)), the components of Distributed Control Systems, I/O devices, Human Machine Interface (HMI)). Safety terms of general use are defined in IEC 61010-1. More specific terms are defined in each part. This part incorporates the safety related requirements of Programmable Controllers. Annex DD provides a cross reference between clauses of this standard and those of IEC 61010-1 or IEC 61131-2:2007. It has the status of a basic safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104.
