Guide 61439 simplifies design and assembly of distribution boards according to IEC 61439/ EN 61439
There is a precise conformity on the content of the new Standard 61439 in the IEC and EN world of standards. Consequently this document uses the writing IEC 61439 / EN 61439 in the following.
With this portal, HENSEL supports you to implement the requirements of
IEC 61439 / EN 61439 from the first step - collecting all project data - via the design of standard-complying HENSEL distribution board systems, up to the provision of the necessary design verification and routine test verification.
Here you will find:
IEC 61439 / EN 61439 shows how a low-voltage switchgear assembly, which is safe for the user, can be built. In addition to changes affecting the design of an assembly, the manufacturer of a switchgear assembly is faced with new tasks and responsibilities.
Defines which documents belong to a low-voltage switchgear assembly and which verifications need to be maintained. Makes statements regarding the rating of the assembly so that a design verification can be maintained.
The guide lists the process of design, assembly and documentation of a low-voltage switchgear assembly in the order of the necessary steps and at the same time assigns to these steps the relevant sections from the standard
IEC 61439 / EN 61439.
The application of the guide is focused on the manufacturing of distribution boards up to 630 A and in addition to checklists and instructions regarding the verification of compliance with the maximum temperature rise.
Step 1: Collecting all the project data
Step 2: Assembly design and design verification
Step 3: Assembly / manufacture of the distribution board
Step 4: Manufacturer's marking
Step 5: Declaration of EC conformity (check lists for the manufacturer of an assembly)
