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



Reference EN 50504:2008
Title Validation of arc welding equipment
Project Number 17187
Abstract/Scope This European Standard specifies validation methods for arc welding equipment constructed and used to the accuracy specified in EN 60974-1 or other equivalent standards. The accuracy of this equipment is designated as standard grade. This European Standard is applicable to a) arc welding power sources, b) wire feeders, c) welding instrumentation. This European Standard is not applicable to arc striking and stabilizing device. Calibration, verification and validation of equipment for other welding processes and ancillary equipment which may affect the quality of the weld, e.g. flow gauges, thermocouples, robots and manipulators are given in EN ISO 17662.
