The Electrical Installation Wiki is a series of professionally written wiki sites in different languages, from experts of the European Union-based multinational Schneider Electric (SE). In its pre-wiki original incarnation in English, it was known as the Electrical Installation Guide (EIG); the new wiki sites, also known as the Electrical Installation Guide and Wiki, aim to be an open collaborative area for all technicians and engineers concerned by the design of electrical installation.

This guide has been written for electrical Engineers who have to design, realise, inspect or maintain electrical installations in compliance with international Standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

Which technical solution will guarantee that all relevant safety rules are met? This question has been a permanent guideline for the elaboration of this document.

An international Standard such as the IEC 60364 'Electrical Installation in Buildings' specifies extensively the rules to comply with to ensure safety and predicted operational characteristics for all types of electrical installations. As the Standard must be extensive, and has to be applicable to all types of products and the technical solutions in use worldwide, the text of the IEC rules is complex, and not presented in a ready-to-use order.

The Standard cannot therefore be considered as a working handbook, but only as a reference document. The aim of the present guide is to provide a clear, practical and step by-step explanation for the complete study of an electrical installation, according to IEC 60364 and other relevant IEC Standards.


Schneider Electric Industries SAS (the parent company) is headquartered at 35 rue Joseph Monier, 92500 Rueil-Malmaison, France.
