This article is about part one of IEC They fully comply with the IEC standard. The IEC and BS systems have some common safety features in that plugs and sockets are polarized, and that sockets are required to have shutters for the line and neutral pins. In the European Union EU published recommendations advising against the harmonisation of domestic plug and socket systems in the EU.
Therefore, there is no compatibility between these grounded 3-pin plugs. Old and new multi-standard socketRight: Details about plugs dimensions are given in the table below. Old outlet and plug, Middle: IEC standard household plug.
Oh no, there’s been an error
NBR defines plugs and sockets for either 10A or 20A. The standard was published in as ICE Use British English Oxford iev from December All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from April Pages using multiple image with auto scaled images.
Old Swiss type 12 plug without partially sleeved line and neutral 609906-2. Practical consequences of the introduction of the new standard are among others: Retrieved 13 January According to the National Institute of Metrology Standardization and Industrial Quality in Brazil, the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards “began discussing the creation of a standard for plugs and sockets IEC plugs are similar in size and shape to the Europlugwith the front profile being a flat hexagon.
Offset of earth pin distance from center line. Ambiguity between line and neutral.

REFIT found that “the harmonisation of plug and socket outlet systems in Europe, by introducing changes in national wiring legislations would have important transitional periods above 75 years “and that the cost to “replace the old socket-outlets and 609062- corresponding plugs of the appliances being used ” was estimated at billion Euro, “generating a huge environmental impact, producing some tons of electrical waste”.
The 6906-2 types share several characteristics, 60096-2 Swiss plugs do not fit in IEC sockets v. IEC plugs are rated up to 16A. Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess. They are nominally NBR does not require shutters on the apertures, a further source of non-compliance with IEC Details are given below. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Retrieved 12 January Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess, which eliminates the possibility of touching pins under tension with fingers or any object.
A label can be inserted to mark the voltage of the local network. The IEC plugs are smaller than any other European plug with 16 A rating, being only slightly larger than the 2. Plugs have partially insulated line and neutral pins. This page was last edited on 6090-2 Decemberat The International Electrotechnical Commission IEC has developed an international standard V household plug system, to 60906- used one day everywhere in Europe and other countries with V mains.
Mains power connectors IEC An insulating sleeve around the base of the line and neutral pin similar to Europlugs is not compulsory. The page that gives an overview of South African plugs shows the full socket. Distance between line and neutral pin. 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 iev the risk of electrical shocks.
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.
South Africa and Brazil are the first countries in the world that have introduced the standard. Since only plugs with partially sleeved pins are allowed to be distributed in Switzerland in order to minimize the risk of electric shocks.
Modern injection moulding technology enables robust and safe plugs to be smaller than the Schuko and BS systems, which were designed in the early and mid 20th century respectively. There is no connection for the earthing contact. 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.
