Miniature fuses – Part 8: Fuse resistors with particular overcurrent protection
|Publication Date:||1 June 2018|
|ICS Code (Fuses and other overcurrent protection devices):||29.120.50|
This part of IEC 60127 relates to fuse resistors with particular overcurrent protection rated up to AC 500 V and/or DC 500 V for printed circuits and other substrate systems, used for the protection of electric appliances, electronic equipment and component parts thereof, normally intended to be used indoors.
It does not apply to fuse resistors with particular overcurrent protection for appliances intended to be used under special conditions, such as in a corrosive or explosive atmosphere.
The object of this part of IEC 60127 is
a) to establish uniform requirements for fuse resistors with particular overcurrent protection so as to protect appliances or parts of appliances in the most suitable way;
b) to define the performance of the fuse resistors with particular overcurrent protection, so as to give guidance to manufacturers of electrical appliances and electronic equipment and to ensure replacement of fuse resistors with particular overcurrent protection by those of similar dimensions and characteristics;
c) to establish uniform test methods for fuse resistors with particular overcurrent protection, so as to allow verification of the values (for example rated dissipation, functioning characteristic and rated breaking capacity values) specified by the manufacturer.
Manufacturers of fuse resistors with particular overcurrent protection shall ensure on their own responsibility that their products comply with the requirements of the resistor-related standards IEC 60115-1, IEC 60115-4-101 and IEC 60115-4-1021.
This part of IEC 60127 applies in addition to the requirements of IEC 60127-1.
