Title Reed switches - Part 1-1: Generic specification - Quality assessment
Project Number 23921
Abstract/Scope IEC 62246-1-1:2013 is a quality assessment specification which defines requirements and tests to reed switches for use in general and industrial applications. This standard selects from IEC 62246-1:2011 and from other sources the appropriate test procedures to be used in detail specifications derived from this specification. This standard describes sampling and test schedules for qualification approval procedures, quality conformance inspection, formation of inspection lots and intervals between tests. This first edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC/PAS 62246-2-1 published in 2008. It is a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous editions: a) inclusion of introduction; b) update of references, terms and definitions; c) renumbering of clauses to bring them into a more logical order; d) inclusion of the generic specifications for reed switches; e) update of typical applications. This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 62246-1:2011.
