Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear – Controller-device interfaces (CDIs)

Part 1: General rules

(IEC 62026-1:2019); German version EN IEC 62026-1:2019
Class/Status: Standard, valid
Released: 2020-04
VDE Art. No.: 0600262

This Standard applies to interfaces between low-voltage switchgear, controlgear and controllers (e.g. programmable controllers, personal computers, etc.). It does not apply to higher level industrial communication networks that have become known as fieldbuses and are considered by IEC subcommittee 65C. The purpose of this series of standards IEC 62026 is to harmonize and define rules, components and requirements of a general nature applicable to industrial CDIs (controller-device interfaces). Those features of the various CDI standards which can be considered as general have therefore been brought together in this Part 1 of IEC 62026.
