Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 November 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 20
ICS Code (Fuses and other overcurrent protection devices): 29.120.50
scope:

This document applies to devices equipped with screwless-type terminals for current not exceeding 40 A, primarily suitable for connecting unprepared copper conductors of cross-section up to 10 mm2.

This document cannot be used alone but is intended to be applied together with the applicable product standard in which it is referred to.

NOTE 1 In CZ, DK, NL, PO and CH, the upper limit of current for use of screwless-type terminals is 16 A.

NOTE 2 In JP, the upper limit of current for use of screwless-type terminals is 30 A.

NOTE 3 The manufacturer can declare in its documentation specific conditions permitting the use of prepared conductors.

In this document, screwless-type terminals are referred to as terminals, and copper conductors are referred to as conductors.
