The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has released IEC 60730-2-15:2017 for automatic electrical controls. Part 2-15 details particular requirements for automatic electrical air flow, water flow and water level sensing controls; and is now available on the IEC webstore.
Description: “IEC 60730-2-15:2017 applies to automatic electrical air flow, water flow and water level sensing controls for use in, or in association with, boilers with a maximum pressure rating of 2 000 kPA (20 bar) and equipment for general household and similar use including controls for heating, air-conditioning and similar applications.
Examples are water flow and water level sensing controls of the float or electrode-sensor type used in boiler applications and air flow, water flow and water level sensing controls for swimming pool pumps, water tank pumps, cooling towers, dishwashers, washing machines, air conditioning chillers and ventilation applications.
This document also applies to automatic electrical air flow, water flow and water level sensing controls for equipment that may be used by the public, such as equipment intended to be used in shops, offices, hospitals, farms and commercial and industrial applications.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2008. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: changes to align with the fifth edition of 60730-1, including the revised title.
This Part 2-15 is intended to be used in conjunction with IEC 60730 1. It was established on the basis of the fifth edition of that standard (2013). Consideration may be given to future editions of, or amendments to, IEC 60730-1.
This Part 2-15 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 60730-1, so as to convert that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements for humidity sensing controls.
Where this Part 2-15 states “addition”, “modification” or “replacement”, the relevant requirement, test specification or explanatory matter in Part 1 should be adapted accordingly.
Where no change is necessary, this document indicates that the relevant clause or subclause of Part 1 applies.”
