This part of IEC 6041 7 contains graphical symbols and their meaning (title and application). The graphical symbols in the standard are primarily intended • to identify the equipment or a part of the equipment (e.g. a control or display); • to indicate functional states (e.g. on, off, alarm); • to designate connections (e.g. terminals, filling points for materials); • to provide information on packaging (e.g. identification of content, instructions for handling); • to provide instruction for the operation of the equipment (e.g. limitations of use). This part 1 provides reference information to help users find appropriate graphical symbols. This part is not intended for reproduction purposes. The graphical symbols specified in this standard are not primarily intended for • safety signs; • public information; • use for drawings; • use in technical documentation of products. In the case of the use of graphical symbols as safety signs, the rules specified in ISO 3864 prevail.
