Title High-voltage switchgear and controlgear - Part 206: Voltage presence indicating systems for rated voltages above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV
Project Number 22517
Abstract/Scope IEC 62271-206:2011 is applicable to voltage presence indicating systems (VPIS) incorporated in a.c. switchgear and controlgear covered by IEC 62271-200 or IEC 62271-201. Voltage presence indicating systems are devices used to provide information to operators about the voltage condition of the main circuit of the switchgear in which they are installed. This first edition of IEC 62271-206 cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 61958. This edition constitutes a minor revision. The main changes with respect of the first edition of IEC 61958 are an actualization of references and the degree of protection which has been changed from IPXXB to IP2X.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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