Description / Abstract:

Equipment included in scope

This part of IEC 61010 specifies safety requirements for METERS.

The METERS that have a primary purpose of measuring voltage on a live MAINS CIRCUIT are within the scope of this standard. They have various names, but all of them have capability for measurements of voltages on a live MAINS CIRCUIT. Some of the names given to this equipment are as follows:


– digital MULTIMETER;


– clamp METER (see also Part 2-032).

For the purpose of this standard, the term METER is used for these HAND-HELD measuring instruments.

NOTE Parts of the equipment that are not within the scope of this Part 2-033 are considered to be covered by the requirements of Part 1 or other part 2's of IEC 61010 and then will also need to meet the requirements of these other parts.

Equipment excluded from scope

aa) IEC 61557 (Electrical safety in low voltage distribution systems up to 1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. – Equipment for testing, measuring or monitoring of protective measures – Parts 1 through 12).

Equipment that is not capable of measuring MAINS voltages is not within the scope of this Part 2-033. See IEC 61010-2-030 for requirements pertaining to such equipment.

Such equipment, including other HAND-HELD equipment such as oscilloscopes, wattmeters, process control MULTIMETERS, and communications test sets is not within the scope of this Part 2-033.

Aspects included in scope

Requirements for protection against HAZARDS resulting from NORMAL USE and REASONABLY FORESEEABLE MISUSE of measuring circuits are given in Clause 101.
