DIN EN 61439

 

 

 

Standard DIN EN 61439

The new standard DIN EN 61439:2012 has replaced the previous DIN EN 60439. It describes the design, construction and requirements for low-voltage switchgear assemblies and therefore has a considerable impact on electrical power distribution in industry, for domestic installation and on construction sites.

With Bals Elektrotechnik distributors, you play it safe in every respect: Our most recent distributor generationsfully meet the specifications of the new standard.

The basic requirements are defined in DIN EN 61439-1 and adapted to the specifics of the respective application by the addition of corresponding standard sections. We therefore make a distinction between 3 categoriesin this product group:

1. Power switchgear assemblies in accordance with DIN EN 61439-2

2. Installation distributors in accordance with DIN EN 61439-3

3. Construction site power distributors in accordance with DIN EN 61439-4

All plug and Combinations produced by Bals Elektrotechnik in accordance with the basic standard DIN EN 61439-1 and the corresponding standardization sections DIN EN 61439-2, 61439-3, 61439-4 can be operated without exception by non-experts.

This includes the connection and disconnection of plug and socket devices as well as the operation of safety elements installed by us, such as miniature circuit breakers or residual current circuit breakers. The operating elements are installed in such a way that they comply with protection degree IP 2X, which also covers protection degree IP XXB (DIN EN 61439-3 Paragraph 8.2.2. and DIN EN 61439-2 Paragraph 8.101 Note 1).

Non-experts are, of course, not permitted to open the enclosures of live combination units. For this reason, it is only possible to open our enclosures using a suitable tool.

With Bals Elektrotechnik distributors you meet the specifications of the DIN EN 61439 standards without running any risk with regard to requirements or approval.
