Do you need a multi-user copy?




ISO 17409:2015 specifies electric safety requirements for conductive connections of electrically propelled road vehicles to an external electric power supply using a plug or vehicle inlet. It applies to electrically propelled road vehicles with voltage class B electric circuits. In general, it may apply to motorcycles and mopeds if no dedicated standards for these vehicles exist. It applies only to vehicle power supply circuits. It applies also to dedicated power supply control functions used for the connection of the vehicle to an external electric power supply. It does not provide requirements regarding the connection to a non-isolated d.c. charging station. It does not provide comprehensive safety information for manufacturing, maintenance, and repair personnel. The requirements when the vehicle is not connected to the external electric power supply are specified in ISO 6469-3. NOTE 1 This International Standard does not contain requirements for vehicle power supply circuits using protection by class II or double/reinforced insulation but it is not the intention to exclude such vehicle applications. NOTE 2 Requirements for EV supply equipment are specified in IEC 61851.
