                          The power of a standard adapted to your needs

                          Why you must use it!


                           The new IEC 61439-1&2 standard, the reference for safe and reliable Low Voltage switchboard 

                          IEC standards are now legal requirements or market benchmarks.

                          The new IEC 61439-1&2 is the benchmark for the construction of LV electrical switchboards.

                          IEC 61439 1&2 fully meets the requirements of designers and users of new generation LV switchboards:

                          • Safety of persons and equipment,
                          • Electrical availability,
                          • Long-term reliability and conformity.
                          To guarantee these essential values, the standard sets a wide range of requirements.

                          These include designing a “system” compliant in all aspects:
                          • Checking interactions and consistency between switchgear and equipment,
                          • Providing protection against electrical, mechanical and structural hazards,
                          • Simplifying system maintenance and upgrading cycles.
                          The new IEC 61439 structure dedicates a section to assembly switchgear (IEC-61439-1&2)
