IEC 61439-1 and IEC 61439-2 Switchboard Testing Procedure

Gain insights into IEC 61439-1 and IEC 61439-2.

Using protective relay and medium voltage switchgear

The IEC 61439 series of standards provides a framework to meet the needs of all associated stakeholders in today’s electrical assemblies global supply chain trends. It clearly specifies the safety and performance requirements across multiple design verification options and is used by engineering consultants, manufacturers, planners, system engineers, test laboratories and end users to define the protection objectives for people and plants in electrical installations.


This standard has now been widely accepted globally, and member countries have either adopted, or harmonized their national standards with the IEC 61439 series, making it truly an internationally accepted certification for assemblies.

This is the second webinar of a three-part series.

Learning objectives (or key points)
