scope:

This part of IEC 61020 specifies the terminology, symbols, test methods and other necessary information to provide consistency in detail specifications for electromechanical switches.

This document relates to electromechanical switches intended for use in electrical and electronic appliances. Switches covered by this document:

a) are devices which open, close, or change the connection of a circuit by the mechanical motion of conducting parts (contacts);

b) have a maximum rated voltage of 480 V;

c) have a maximum rated current of 63 A.

This document does not include keyboards and keypads which are intended for use in information-handling systems. Electromechanical key switches can be included under the scope of this document.

Switch families will be described in any detail specifications that reference this document.

This document is a performance standard intended to describe evaluation methods to better clarify the capabilities of a switch.

NOTE 1 Safety requirements for switches for household and similar fixed electrical installations are given in IEC 60669 (all parts).

NOTE 2 Safety requirements for appliance switches are given in IEC 61058 (all parts).
