Title Automatic electrical controls for household and similar use - Part 2-6: Particular requirements for automatic electrical pressure sensing controls including mechanical requirements
Project Number 16514
Abstract/Scope Applies to automatic electrical pressure sensing controls with a minimum gauge pressure rating of -60 kPa and a maximum gauge pressure rating of 4,2 MPa, for use in, on or in association with, equipment for household and similar use that may use electricity, gas, oil, solid fuel, solar thermal energy, etc. or a combination thereof, including heating, air-conditioning and similar applications. Applies to inherent safety, operating values, operating sequences where such are associated with equipment protection, and to the testing of automatic electrical pressure sensing controls used in, on or in association with, household and similar equipment. This second edition constitutes a technical revision, which incorporates amended requirements for electronic control in Annex H.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
