Switchgear and control panels in accordance with European directives and IEC standards

The IEC standards are changing. We will support you now and in the future.

The IEC standards are the most widely used in the world for low-voltage controls and distribution. Your day-to-day work would be inconceivable without them.

But staying up to date with the abundance of relevant standards and guidelines is a considerable challenge. At present, the replacement of IEC 60439 with the new IEC 61439 standard for low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies is causing some changes to your daily work. Siemens can assist you with a wide range of information, training and consulting services.
