Electrical Safety Testing for Machinery As Per IEC 60204-1

Are you looking for a lab for IEC 60204-1 testing, and then your search ends at Institute of testing and certification Pvt Ltd (ITC India Pvt Ltd). ITC is a NABL accredited lab in electronics, electrical and photometry. Meticulous machines and proficient engineer are appointed here for the best results. Customer satisfaction is the policy of our company. Let us discuss about the IEC 60204-1 standard relating to machinery. Below are some images of some products under this category.

What is IEC 60204-1 standard?

This standard is applicable to electrical, electronic and programmable electronic equipment and machine not portable by hand while working including a group of machine working together in a co-ordinate manner.

It implies to Electrical equipment which operate at supply

Voltage <1000V for AC

Voltage <1500 V DC with nominal supply frequency <200 Hz

Power circuit where electrical energy is directly used as working tool are excluded from IEC 60204.

ITC is doing testing of this standard.

Below is the list of test performed as per this:
