IEC 61439 vs IEC 60439


IEC 61439 vs IEC 60439

Hello expert,


My name Widi from Indonesia, I have a question related to IEC 61439 & IEC 60439.

As we know that IEC 60439 is for partial type tested panel and IEC 61439 for full type tested panel.

Is IEC 61439 replacing IEC 60439 ? 

Could we use both standard in our design for LV switchboard ?

What's impact by using both standard in our design ?

Re: IEC 61439 vs IEC 60439

Yes. We can say that IEC 61439 verified assemblies is replacing the previous IEC 60439 which is partially type tested.


With IEC 60439, we can not say that the product is full type tested, because in IEC 60439 also allow to have partial type tested (allow not to do some verification test), 


With IEC 61439 eliminate the Partial Type tested concept. So we can ensure when a product is comply with IEC 61439, then it is full type tested. Meaning that the components and the Panel is verified together as assemblies following the Design & routine verifications.


If a product is comply with IEC 61439, it will also comply with IEC 60439, but not vise versa.

Comply with IEC 60439, may not means comply with IEC 61439 due to partial type tested concept.




Bisa dikatakan bahwa IEC 61439 menggantikan IEC 60439.


Dalam IEC 60439 tidak bisa dikatakan bahwa produk tersebut teruji secara penuh (Full Type Tested), dikarenakan dalam IEC 60439 diijinkan untuk tidak melakukan beberapa pengujian / teruji sebagian (Partial type tested).


IEC 61439 menghilangkan konsep Teruji Sebagian / Partial type Tested sehingga produk yang lulus uji IEC 61439 dikategorikan Teruji Penuh / Full Type Tested. Komponen dan selungkup panel sudah teruji secara terakit. mengikuti ketentuan standar IEC61439 dalam disain & pengujian.


Jika suatu produk lulus uji IEC 61439 maka pastinya akan lulus uji IEC 60439, tetapi tidak sebaliknya.

Jika suatu produk lulus uji IEC 60439, belum tentu lulus uji IEC 61439.


Dampak jika memilih produk yang hanya lulus uji IEC 60439 adalah produk tersebut kemungkinan tidak lulus pengujian secara penuh atau hanya sebagian test yang lulus pengujian sehingga jaminan performa tidak akan sama dengan yang lulus IEC 61439.
