Over deze norm
IEC 62040-1 applies to movable, stationary, fixed or built-in UPS for use in lowvoltage distribution systems and that are intended to be installed in an area accessible by an ordinary person or in a restricted access area as applicable, that deliver fixed frequency AC output voltage with port voltages not exceeding 1000 V AC or 1500 V DC and that include an energy storage device. It applies to pluggable and to permanently connected UPS, whether consisting of a system of interconnected units or of independent units, subject to installing, operating and maintaining the UPS in the manner prescribed by the manufacturer. Alternative devices exist, and as such, where "battery" appears in the text of this document, this is to be understood as "energy storage device". This document specifies requirements to ensure safety for the ordinary person who comes into contact with the UPS and, where specifically stated, for the skilled person. The objective is to reduce risks of fire, electric shock, thermal, energy and mechanical hazards during use and operation and, where specifically stated, during service and maintenance. This product standard is harmonized with the applicable parts of group safety publication IEC 62477-1:2012 for power electronic converter systems and contains additional requirements relevant to UPS. This document does not cover: - UPS that have a DC output; - systems for operation on moving platforms including, but not limited to, aircrafts, ships and motor vehicles; - external AC or DC input and output distribution boards covered by their specific product standard; - stand-alone static transfer systems (STS) covered by IEC 62310-1; - systems wherein the output voltage is directly derived from a rotating machine; - telecommunications apparatus other than UPS for such apparatus; - functional safety aspects covered by IEC 61508 (all parts).
