Title Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear - Product data and properties for information exchange
Project Number 23787
Abstract/Scope IEC 62683:2013 is used to facilitate the exchange in electronic format of data describing low voltage switchgear and controlgear. This standard provides clear and unambiguous definitions of a limited number of properties and classes which are mainly used for presentation, selection and identification of products particularly in electronic catalogues. Each property has an unambiguously defined meaning and naming, and where relevant, a defined value list, a defined format and a defined unit. The intention is to produce a reference dictionary which allows a general description of low voltage switchgear and controlgear classes based on the defined properties. The intention is not to cover manufacturer specific features.
