Preface to Electrical Installation Guide 2013 PDF


Etienne TISON, International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) TC64 Chairman. The task of the IEC Technical Committee 64 is to develop and keep up-todate requirements - for the protection of persons against electrical shock, and - for the design, verification and implementation of low voltage electrical installations.

Series of standard such as IEC 60364 developed by IEC TC64 is considered by the international community as the basis of the majority of national low-voltage wiring rules.

IEC 60364 series is mainly focussed on safety due the use of electricity by people who may not be aware of risk resulting from the use of electricity.

But modern electrical installations are increasingly complex, due to external input such as - electromagnetic disturbances - energy efficiency - ... Consequently, designers, installers and consumers need guidance on the selection and installation of electrical equipment.

Schneider Electric has developed this Electrical Installation Guide dedicated to low voltage electrical installations.

It is based on IEC TC64 standards such as IEC 60364 series and provides additional information in order to help designers, contractors and controllers for implementing correct low-voltage electrical installations.

As TC64 Chairman, it is my great pleasure and honour to introduce this guide. I am sure it will be used fruitfully by all persons involved in the implementation of all low-voltage electrical installations.

This guide has been written for electrical Engineers who have to design, select electrical equipment, install these equipment and, inspect or maintain low-voltage electrical installations in compliance with international Standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

“Which technical solution will guarantee that all relevant safety rules are met?” This question has been a permanent guideline for the elaboration of this document.

An international Standard such as the IEC 60364 series “Low voltage Electrical Installations” specifies extensively the rules to comply with to ensure safety and correct operational functioning of all types of electrical installations.

As the Standard must be extensive, and has to be applicable to all types of equipment and the technical solutions in use worldwide, the text of the IEC rules is complex, and not presented in a ready-to-use order.

The Standard cannot therefore be considered as a working handbook, but only as a reference document. The aim of the present guide is to provide a clear, practical and stepby-step explanation for the complete study of an electrical installation, according to IEC 60364 series and other relevant IEC Standards.

The first chapter (A) presents the methodology to be used, and refers to all chapters of the guide according to the different steps of the study.

We all hope that you, the reader, will find this handbook genuinely helpful. The Electrical Installation Guide is a single document covering the techniques and standards related to low-voltage electrical installations.

It is intended for electrical professionals in companies, design offices, inspection organisations, etc.

This Technical Guide is aimed at professional users and is only intended to provide them guidelines for the definition of an industrial, tertiary or domestic electrical installation.

Information and guidelines contained in this Guide are provided AS IS. Schneider Electric makes no warranty of any kind.
