                                  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)
