Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies - Part 0: Guide to specifying assemblies

IEC/TR 61439-0:2013, which is a technical report identifies, from the user's perspective, those functions and characteristics that should be defined when specifying ASSEMBLIES. It provides:

- an explanation of the ASSEMBLY characteristics and options within the IEC 61439 series;
- a guidance on how to select the appropriate option and to define characteristics so as to meet specific application needs, using a functional approach; and
- an assistance in the specification of ASSEMBLIES. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2010. It constitutes a technical revision. This second edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- alignment with IEC 61439-1:2011;
- alignment of Annex B with Annex AA of IEC 61439-2:2011;
