IEC 61800-5-1:2022 specifies requirements for adjustable speed electrical <em>power drive systems (PDS)</em> or their elements, with respect to electrical, thermal, fire, mechanical, energy and other relevant hazards. It does not cover the driven<em> </em>equipment except for interface requirements. It applies to adjustable speed electrical <em>PDS</em> which include the power conversion, <em>basic drive module</em> <em>(BDM)/complete drive module (CDM)</em> control, and a motor or motors.
Excluded are traction and electric vehicle <em>BDM/CDM</em>.
It applies to low-voltage adjustable speed electrical <em>PDS</em> intended to feed a motor or motors from a <em>BDM/CDM</em> connected to phase-to-phase voltages of up to and including 1,0 kV AC (50 Hz or 60 Hz) and up to and including 1,5 kV DC. It also applies to high-voltage adjustable speed electrical <em>PDS</em> intended to feed a motor or motors from a <em>BDM/CDM</em> connected to phase-to-phase voltages of up to and including 35 kV AC (50 Hz or 60 Hz) and up to and including 52 kV DC.
This document also applies to <em>PDS</em> which intentionally emits or receives radio waves for the purpose of radio communication.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
<div style="text-align:justify">a) harmonization with IEC 62477-1:2022;</div>
<div style="text-align:justify">b) harmonization with UL 61800-5-1 and CSA C22.2 No. 274, including an annex with a list of national deviation which was considered not possible to harmonize within a reasonable timeframe;</div>
<div style="text-align:justify">c) more detailed information about the evaluation of components according to this document and relevant safety component standards;</div>
<div style="text-align:justify">d) updated requirement for mechanical hazards including multiple IP ratings.</div>
When the standard is harmonized under a directive or regulation, the word Harmonized appear. When such an inscription does not appear, it means that the standard is related to / supporting the relevant directive or regulation.
Directive 2014/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits
