The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has developed an international standard V household plug system, to be used one day everywhere in. IEC is an international standard for V AC domestic power plugs and sockets. It was conceived as a common mains plug and socket standard for. BRAZIL NBR , IEC , IEC PANEL MOUNT NBR (BR2- 10R) TYPE N POWER OUTLET, 10 AMPERE VOLT, 2 POLE 3 WIRE.

IEC plugs are similar in size and shape to the Europlugwith the front profile being a flat hexagon. The Japanese EIAJ standard includes five different sizes, with supporting an specified range of voltages.

The E-series is a system of preferred numbers also called preferred values derived for use in electronic components. Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess, which eliminates the possibility of touching pins under tension with fingers or any object.

Modern British sockets for domestic use are manufactured as single or double units with an integral face plate and are designed to fit standard mounting boxes. In common with the Europlug there is an insulating sleeve around the base of the line and neutral pins. Japan 15 Ampere Volt. Old and new multi-standard socketRight: Mont Blanc in the Alps is the highest peak in the EU.

Practical consequences of the introduction of the new standard are among others: Universal 20 Ampere Volt. Common North American volt receptacles.

Part three, IECisc a family of extra low voltage connectors. The union maintains permanent diplomatic missions throughout the world and represents itself at the United Nations, the World Trade 609006, the G7, because of its global influence, the European Union has been described as an emerging superpower.

It ensures that the protective-earth pin establishes contact before the line and neutral pins. InLatimer Clark and Sir Charles Bright coined the name volt for ief unit of resistance, bythe British Association for the Advancement of Science had defined the volt, ohm, and farad. This gap allows a bit of room above and below a piece of equipment so it may be removed without binding on the adjacent equipment.


The latest major amendment to the basis of the EU. South Africa and Brazil are the first countries in the world that have introduced the standard. Although it looks similar to the Swiss SEV plug, its dimensions 69006 different. Discovering Electricity Was Easier”. Brazil is a power in Latin America and a middle power in international affairs. An adaptor is defined in IEC 6096 a portable accessory constructed as an integral unit incorporating both a plug portion and one or more socket-outlet portions, when electricity was first introduced into houses, it was primarily used for lighting.

South African National Standard Outlet accepts Brazil 16 Amp. France 16 Ampere Volt.

IEC 60906-1

Modern injection moulding technology enables robust and safe plugs to be smaller than the Schuko and BS systems, which were designed in the early and mid 20th century respectively. NBR defines plugs and sockets for either 10A or 20A. Connector accepts Brazil 10 Amp. D0-type fuses are similar but have a smaller, cylindrical body and they are available in three different sizes with ratings from 2 A up to A.

660906 IEC has published a brief history about the international idc of electrical plugs and sockets for domestic use, which is worthwhile reading.

Inthe Communities enlarged to include Denmark, Ireland, Norway had negotiated to join at the same time, but Norwegian voters rejected membership in a referendum. The live pins are in contact while exposed. Moreover, the Italian plug is rated for up to 10 amperes although a ampere version exists with different and incompatible size 06906, while the IEC plugs are rated for 13 amperes.

Common uses include server, audio, and scientific lab equipment, the height of jec electronic modules is also standardized as multiples of 1.

Russia, while maintaining its own mains connector standard, has it largely harmonised with the relevant European regulations since Soviet times 9.


There are a number of non-compliance issues with IEC The numeral following the hyphen is the current rating of the device in amperes and this number is followed by the letter R to indicate a receptacle or P to indicate a plug. President Delorsone of the most notable presidents in the Commission’s history. 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.

Inthe Communities enlarged to include Denmark, Ireland, Norway had negotiated to join at the same time, but Norwegian voters rejected membership in a referendum 8.

Thus, a 1U rackmount computer is not 1. As 06906 example, the R is the common V two-pole, the LR, while sharing the same electrical rating, is a locking design that is not physically compatible with the straight-blade design. The normal technical term for an AC power socket is socket-outlet, in British English the general term is socket, but there are numerous common alternatives, including power point, plug socket, wall socket, and wall plug.

Not for use with X45 Circuit breaker. Not for use with wall box.

The dot in the middle of the socket is a screw head, not a third hole. The procedural languages of the Commission are English, French and German, the Members of the Commission and their cabinets are based in the Berlaymont building in Brussels. Uncovered metal envelopes present a risk of shock and should be replaced immediately under extreme precautions by trained personnel.

Its Amazon River basin includes a vast tropical forest, home to wildlife, a variety of ecological systems. Mounts on American 2X4 wall irc or panel mount. Schuko connectors are used on circuits with V,50 Hz.
