Reference EN 61557-14:2013
Title Electrical safety in low voltage distribution systems up to 1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. - Equipment for testing, measuring or monitoring of protective measures - Part 14: Equipment for testing the safety of electrical equipment of machinery
Project Number 23826
Abstract/Scope IEC 61557-14:2013 defines special requirements for test and measurement equipment used to determine the electrical safety of electrical equipment of machinery according to IEC 60204-1. IEC 61010 and the existing parts of series IEC 61557 do not cover all safety aspects of testing electrical equipment of machinery. IEC 61557-14 provides additional protection against electric shock for the testing person and bystanders during high-voltage-tests and in case of unintended use of the test equipment. It defines performance requirements for each measuring and testing function to ensure comparable results.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
