|ICS Code (Switches):||29.120.40|
This part of IEC 60265 is applicable to three-phase, alternating current switches and switch-disconnectors
This standard is also applicable to the operating devices of these switches and to their auxiliary equipment.
General principles and provisions of this standard may also be applicable to single pole switches intended for application in single-phase systems. The requirements for dielectric tests and making and breaking tests should be in accordance with the requirements of the specific application.
NOTE 1 - Except where special clarification is required, the term "switch" is used to refer to all kinds of switches and switch-disconnectors
NOTE 2 - Earthing switches are not covered by this standard. Earthing switches forming an integral part of a switch are covered by IEC 60129.
NOTE 3 - This standard is not applicable to switching devices attached as an accessory to a high-voltage fuse assembly or its mounting and operated by opening and closing the fuse assembly.
