Title Electrical and pneumatic analogue chart recorders for use in industrial process control systems - Part 2: Guidance for inspection and routine testing
Project Number 15588
Abstract/Scope applies to electrical and pneumatic analogue chart recorders (for use in industrial-process control systems), operating from a standardized signal which may be used in process control. It is intended that continuous and dotted line traces, and multiple pen and multiple-channel instruments should be covered. Provides technical guidance for inspection and routine testing of electrical and pneumatic analogue chart recorders, for instance, as acceptance tests or after repair

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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