IEC = International Electrotechnical CommissionPower Symbols
The power symbols for equipment are defined in IEC 5007, 5008, 5009 and 5010.
|the POWER ON symbol indicates that the equipment is turned ON, defined in IEC 5007|
|the POWER OFF symbol indicates that the equipment is turned OFF, defined in IEC 5008|
|the "true" POWER ON/OFF switch there in the off position the power is completely turned OFF, defined in IEC 5009|
|the POWER ON/OFF switch with the STANDBY state in the OFF position (Standby or Sleep mode), defined in IEC 5010|
IEC 60417 and ISO 7000 determine graphical symbols for use on equipment. These International Standards are maintained by IEC/TC 3, subcommittee SC 3C and
ISO/TC 145, subcommittee SC 3.
The standards IEC 60417 and ISO 7000 each are build by a list of reference numbers with a title to each subcribe one symbol and its use.
IEC 60417 symbols are used to identify part of the equipment or the equipment itself, indicate a functional state, connections, information on packaging, operation instructions. It is not used for safety signs, not used on drawings and diagrams, not used in technical documentation and technical documentations and not used for public information.
