IEC 60730-2-5:2013+A1:2017 applies to automatic electrical burner control systems for the automatic control of burners for oil, gas, coal or other combustibles for household and similar use including heating, air conditioning and similar use. This part 2-5 is applicable to a complete burner control system and to a separate programming unit. This part 2-5 is also applicable to a separate electronic high-voltage ignition source and to a separate flame detector. Separate ignition devices (electrodes, pilot burners, etc.) are not covered by this part 2-5 unless they are submitted as part of a burner control system. Requirements for separate ignition transformers are contained in IEC 60989. Systems utilizing thermoelectric flame supervision are not covered by this part 2-5. This part 2-5 applies to the inherent safety, to the manufacturer's declared operating values, operating times and operating sequences where such are associated with burner safety and to the testing of automatic electrical burner control systems used in, on, or in association with, burners. It was established on the basis of the fourth edition (2010) of that publication. Consideration may be given to future editions of, or amendments to, IEC 60730-1. The title of IEC 60730-2-5 Ed4.0 has been updated to the title of IEC 60730-1 Ed5.0. However, IEC 60730-2-5 Ed4.0 has not been updated in accordance with the technical requirements in IEC 60730-1 Ed5.0. This part 2-5 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 60730-1 so as to convert that publication into the IEC standard: Safety requirements for automatic electrical burner control systems. This consolidated version consists of the first edition (2013) and its amendment 1 (2017). Therefore, no need to order amendment in addition to this publication.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60730-1:2013.
