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



Reference EN 60470:2000
Title High-voltage alternating current contactors and contactor-based motor starters
Project Number 11732
Abstract/Scope Applies to contactors intended for closing and opening electric circuits, and, if combined with suitable relays, for protecting those circuits against operating overloads which may occur therein. Intended to state the characteristics of contactors; the conditions with which contactors shall comply with reference to their operation and behaviour and their dielectric properties; the tests intended for confirming that these conditions have been met and the methods to be adopted for these tests; the data to be marked on the apparatus.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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