Oh no, there’s been an error
Insulating sleeve around base of L and N pins. The live pins are in contact while exposed. The 3-pin version has a round protective-earth pin of the same length and diameter as the line and neutral pins, but with no insulating sleeve. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Ambiguity between line and neutral.
The IEC plugs are smaller than any other European plug with 16 A rating, being only slightly larger than the 2. Brand name of socket and plug: However, the IEC standard explicitly discourages the use of multi-standard sockets, claiming that such sockets are likely to create safety problems when used with plugs from other countries.
However, the pins of the Type L 10 A are 4 mm in diameter as in the Europlug and the earth pin is aligned with the two others no offset is presentmaking the Italian plug unpolarized. The sockets are small enough that two can be installed in the space taken by a single Schuko or BS socket.
There are a number of non-compliance issues with IEC Socket for new plugs only. Old Swiss type 12 plug without partially sleeved line and neutral pins. Old and new multi-standard socketRight: Retrieved 13 January Discovering Electricity Was Easier”. Details about plugs dimensions are given in the table below.
Offset of earth pin distance from center line. Retrieved from ” https: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. It ensures that the protective-earth pin establishes contact before the line and neutral pins.
List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards. Details about plug dimensions are given in the table below.
Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess. Archived from the original on The IEC and BS systems have some common safety features in that plugs and sockets are 6906-2, and that sockets iecc required to have shutters for the line and neutral pins. An insulating sleeve around the base of the line and neutral pin similar to Europlugs is not compulsory. Mains power connectors IEC Therefore, there is no compatibility between these grounded 3-pin plugs.
Since only plugs with partially sleeved pins are allowed to be distributed in Switzerland in order to minimize the risk of electric shocks.
IEC plugs are similar in size and shape to the Europlugwith the front profile jec a flat hexagon. Although it looks similar to the Swiss SEV plug, its dimensions are different. Pins are thicker compared to 10A plugs 4.
Museum of Plugs and Sockets: IEC standard household plug
NBR does not require shutters on the apertures, a further source of non-compliance with IEC They are nominally According to the National Institute of Metrology Standardization and Industrial Quality in Brazil, the Brazilian Association of 6090-62 Standards “began discussing the creation of a standard for plugs and sockets Plugs have partially insulated line and neutral pins.
It was concluded with wide participation of the manufacturers of plugs and sockets and of electrical and electronic equipment, in July ofwith the publication of the 609062 ABNT NBR NBR defines plugs and sockets for either 10A or 20A.
Beginning January 1st, new residential, commercial and industrial wall outlet installations must comply with this new standard, and beginning August 1st, imported electrical devices must comply with NBR regulations. The International Electrotechnical Commission IEC has developed an international standard V household plug system, to be used one day everywhere in Europe and other countries with V mains.
The IEC is similar to the Italian plug CEI 10 A “Type L”with the same front profile shaped as a flat hexagon and the same position of the line and neutral pins the centres spaced 19 mm apart. Plugs and socket-outlets 16 A V a. A label can be inserted to mark the voltage of the local network.
This article is about part one of IEC This page was last edited on 25 December 06906-2, at There is no connection for the earthing contact. However, the latter has smaller diameter pins 4. Retrieved 12 January Views Read Edit View history. However, since 1 Januaryonly type 11 and 12 plugs with partially sleeved line and neutral pins are allowed to be imported and distributed in Switzerland to reduce the risk of electrical shocks. Moreover, the Italian plug is rated for up to 10 amperes although a ampere version exists with different and incompatible sizewhile the IEC plugs are rated for 13 amperes.
The standard was published in iev ICE
