International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 61810-1:2008
Title Electromechanical elementary relays - Part 1: General requirements
Project Number 20868
Abstract/Scope Applies to electromechanical elementary relays (non-specified time all-or-nothing relays) for incorporation into equipment. Defines the basic functional requirements and safety-related aspects for applications in all areas of electrical engineering or electronics. Compliance with the requirements of this standard is verified by the type tests indicated. The main changes with respect to the previous edition comprise: - inclusion of contact load categories (same as in IEC 61810-2 and IEC 61810-7); - clarifications concerning electrical endurance; - inclusion of provisions for insulation coordination in accordance with the basic safety standards; - inclusion of new annexes for the test set-up, and for special loads.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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