South Africa and Brazil are the first countries in the world that have introduced the standard. However, the IEC standard explicitly discourages the use of multi-standard sockets, claiming that such sockets are likely to create safety problems when used with plugs from other countries. 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.
The IEC and BS systems 6090-62 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. An advantage of the IEC plug types is smaller physical sizes.
IEC plugs are rated up to 16A. NBR defines plugs and sockets for either 10A or 20A. Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess. There is no connection for the earthing contact. It was concluded with wide participation of the manufacturers of ifc and sockets and of electrical and electronic equipment, in July ofwith the publication of the norm ABNT NBR Therefore, there is no compatibility between these grounded 3-pin plugs.
NBR does not require shutters on the apertures, a further source of non-compliance with IEC Archived from the original on From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Socket for new plugs only. Old and new ic socketRight: Details are given below. The IEC has published a brief history about the international standardization of electrical plugs and sockets for domestic use, which is worthwhile reading.
However, the iwc has smaller diameter pins 4. Use British English Oxford spelling from December All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from April Pages using multiple image with auto scaled images. Pins are thicker compared to 10A plugs 4. List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards.
Moreover, the Italian plug is rated for up to 10 amperes although a ampere version exists with different and incompatible sizewhile the IEC plugs are rated for 13 amperes. The page that gives an overview of South African plugs shows the full socket.
Attempts to standardize European electrical power distribution started already in the early s! Insulating sleeve around base of L and N pins.
Oh no, there’s been an error
This article is about part one of IEC The pins have a diameter of 4. They are nominally In other isc Wikimedia Commons. Mains power connectors IEC Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess, which eliminates the possibility of touching pins under tension with fingers or any object.
Ie 12 January The sockets are small enough that two can be installed in the space taken by a single Schuko or BS socket.

This page was last edited on 25 Decemberat Plugs and socket-outlets 16 A V a.
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. Distance between line and neutral pin.
Beginning January 1st, 609006-2 residential, commercial and industrial wall outlet installations must comply with this new standard, and beginning August 1st, imported electrical devices must comply with NBR regulations.
Details about plug dimensions are given in the table below. Sockets are required to have shutters for the line and neutral apertures. The standard was 609062- in as ICE Old outlet and plug, Middle: An insulating sleeve around the base of the line and neutral pin similar to Europlugs is not compulsory.
A label can be inserted to mark the voltage of the local network. However, since 1 Januaryonly type 11 and 12 plugs with partially 6906-2 line and neutral pins are allowed to be imported and distributed in Switzerland to reduce the risk of electrical shocks.
Ambiguity between line and neutral. Brand name of socket and plug: The International Electrotechnical Commission IEC has developed an international standard V household plug system, to be used one day everywhere in Europe and other countries with V mains. Offset of earth pin distance from center line. Retrieved from ” https: REFIT found that “the harmonisation of plug and socket outlet systems in Europe, by introducing changes in national wiring legislations would 6906-2 important transitional periods above 75 years “and that the cost to “replace the old socket-outlets and the corresponding plugs of the appliances being used ” was estimated at billion Euro, “generating a huge environmental impact, producing some tons of 69006-2 waste”.
