IEC 60050-581:2008 gives the general terminology used in the fields of electromechanical components for electronic equipment, and reflects the technology, design, construction, performance and application employed. It contains only the terms relating to the scope of Technical Committee 48. General and special terms which are described in other publications have not been included. SC 48C, formerly the sub-committee on Switches, has been disbanded and incorporated into IEC SC 23J. For this reason, the sections 10, 11 and 12 which included definitions for switches have been deleted. These sections will be considered by SC 23J for integration into IEC 60050-442.
It has the status of a horizontal standard in accordance with IEC Guide 108.
