Use of conventional touch voltage limits- Application guide; IEC TS 61201:2007-08. guideline

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)


This technical specification provides voltage limits as conventional touch voltage limits with regard to protection against electric shock. Consideration is given to different physiological effects, environmental conditions, contact conditions, etc. This specification only discusses voltages for sinusoidal alternating current at 50/60 Hz and pure direct current having no significant AC component.
