NEN-EN-IEC 60204-1: Electrical equipment of machines

This training gives practical substance to the Low Voltage Directive and the Machinery Directive.


Duur One day from 09.30 to 16.30 hours
Aantal deelnemers Minimum 4
Voor wie Designers, constructors, mechanics, panel builders, electricians, employees of technical services, installation managers, and others who design, manufacture, assemble, adapt or renovate machines. In addition, inspection authorities, advisors, inspectors and occupational health and safety services involved in risk inventories and evaluations, inspection (FAT and SAT) and inspection of machines and composite installations.
Prijs € --- excl. BTW

The ‘NEN-EN-IEC 60204-1: Electrical equipment of machines’ classroom training shows you around the system of legislation and standards, and discusses the technical changes that the renewal of IEC 60204-1:2018 will bring about.

You build, modify, renovate or inspect machines. When setting up the electrical equipment of machines, you are dealing with the NEN-EN-IEC 60204-1 standard.

  • What are the legal requirements for electrical safety and how does this standard relate to other standards?
  • How do you apply the necessary protection and monitoring?

After this training you will be able to set up a safe electrical equipment of machines. You know the regulations, work efficiently with the standards and know how to record your choices. If you are an inspector, you know what to look out for when checking the electrical equipment.

Standards for this training (not mandatory, but practical)
