IEC 60073 pdf download Basic and safety principles for man-machine interface, marking and identification – Coding principles for indicators and actuators
1 Scope
This International Standard establishes general rules for assigning particular meanings tocertain visual, acoustic and tactile indications in order to
increase the safety of persons,property and/or the environment through the safemonitoring and control of the equipment or process;
facilitate the proper monitoring, control and maintenance of the equipment or process;- facilitate the rapid recognition of control conditions and actuator positions.
This standard is for general application:
from simple cases such as single indicator lights,push-buttons,mechanical indicators,light emitting diodes (LEDs) or video display screens to extensive control stations whichmay include a wide variety of devices for controlling an equipment or process;
NOTE Application of the general coding principles for displays on screens should be carried out withoutmodification.
where the safety of persons, property and/or the environment is involved, and also wherethe above-mentioned codes are used to facilitate the proper monitoring and controlling ofequipment;
where a particular kind of coding is to be assigned by a technical committee to a specialfunction.
