INTRODUCTION TO EN IEC 60204 – 2021 SAFETY OF MACHINERY ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT OF MACHINES – PART 1: GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

IEC 60204-1 is scoped to cover the electrical equipment of machines that operate in the low-voltage range, generally accepted to be 1000 V a.c. or less, or 1500 V d.c. or less.

Equipment within the scope is typically built from off-the-shelf components assembled into a suitable electrical enclosure, with the necessary interconnecting wiring and mechanical supporting structures.
