6.5 Safety

Most of the operator panels are fed with 24 V DC.

1. If you use a power supply that meets safety standards and only feeds the operator
panel, there is no problem.
2. However, if you have a 24 V unit that also feeds other units, there is reason to be
cautious.
The operator panel does not have insulation that meets safety requirements in
the event of a potential short circuit between 230 V AC and 24 V DC. It is
assumed that the 24 V feed is secure, for example, SELV according to
EN 60950 (protection against electric shock) and UL 950.
Example:
Here is an example that explains why a secure 24 V DC feed can be ruined by mixing 24
V relay contacts with 230 V AC relay contacts in a smaller controller. Check that the
"clearances and creepage distances between 24 V DC and 230 V AC fulfill EN 60950 or
UL 950". If not, input a separate 24 V unit into the operator panel.
3. If there is a substantial distance between the relay contacts for 24 V DC and
230 V AC, it is OK to use the same 24 V devices for all feeds.
4. Connect 0 V on the 24 V feed to the ground. This offers three advantages:
–Safety is increased. The 24 V feed will not be live in the event of a faulty connec-
tion or short circuit between 0 V (24 V) and 230 V phase.
–Transients on the 24 V feed are connected to the ground.
–No risk that the 24 V feed is at a high level in relationship to the ground. This is
not unusual since there is high static electricity.
