Abstract

IEC 60974-8:2021(E) specifies safety and performance requirements for gas consoles intended to be used with combustible gases or oxygen. These gas consoles are designed to supply gases for use in arc welding, plasma cutting, gouging and allied processes in non-explosive atmospheres.

The gas console can be external or internal to the power source enclosure. In the latter case, the power source shall meet the requirements of both IEC 60974-1 and this document.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are the following:
  • changes induced by the publication of IEC 60974-1:2017;
  • requirements for the rating plate as in IEC 60974-1:2017, Clause 15;
  • requirements for the instructions in 13.1.
This part of IEC 60974 is to be used in conjunction with IEC 60974-1.
