Title Mechanical structures for electronic equipment - Tests for IEC 60917 and IEC 60297 series - Part 4: Combination of performance levels for modular cabinets
Project Number 23648
Abstract/Scope IEC 61587-4:2012 provides the combinations of different degrees of protection for cabinet systems regarding IP code, climate levels, static and dynamics load tests, electromagnetic shielding and seismic requirements. Optimal economical solution can be ensured by ordering a cabinet with specific properties for which this design guide provides the easy selection of defined performance levels. Keywords: Modular cabinets

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
