                                                        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)
