Abstract

IEC 61010-2-012:2019 is available as IEC 61010-2-012:2019 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 61010-2-012:2019 specifies safety requirements for electrical equipment and its accessories within the categories a) through c), wherever it is intended to be used, whenever that equipment incorporates one or more of the following characteristics:
– A refrigerating system that is acted on or impacted by an integral heating function such that the combined heating and refrigerating system generates additional and/or more severe hazards than those for the two systems if treated separately.
– The materials being treated in the intended application introduce significant heat into the refrigerating system, so that the refrigerating system in the application yields additional and/or more severe hazards than those for the refrigerating system if operated at the maximum rated ambient temperature alone.
– An irradiation function for the materials being treated presenting additional hazards.
– A function to expose the materials being treated to excessive humidity, carbon dioxide, salt mist, or other substances which can result in additional hazards.
– A function of mechanical movement presenting additional hazards.
– Provision for an operator to walk in to the operating area to load or unload the materials being treated.
It has the status of a group safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104.
