Title Arc welding equipment - Part 9: Installation and use
Project Number 22007
Abstract/Scope IEC 60974-9:2010(E) is applicable to the installation and use of equipment for arc welding and allied processes designed in accordance with safety requirements of IEC 60974-1, IEC 60974-6 or equivalent. This part of IEC 60974 is applicable for the guidance of instructors, operators, welders, managers, and supervisors in the safe installation and use of equipment for arc welding and allied processes and the safe performance of welding and cutting operations. It cancels and replaces IEC/TS 62081, published in 1999. This first edition constitutes a technical revision. The following major differences with respect to IEC/TS 62081:1999 are to be noted: - 4.3.3 Welding cables: Now dimensions are recommended; - 5 Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC): this is completely new; - 6 Electromagnetic fields (EMF): this is completely new; - 7.3 Inspection and maintenance of the welding installation: There is now a differentiation between periodical and routine inspection.
