Retrieved 13 January According eic the National Institute of Metrology Standardization and Industrial Quality in Brazil, the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards “began discussing the creation of a standard for plugs and sockets It ensures that the protective-earth pin establishes contact before the line and neutral pins.

Oh no, there’s been an error

Archived from the original on 60906–2 IEC and BS systems have 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. The pins have a diameter of 4. The standard was published in as ICE Insulating sleeve around base of L and N pins. It was concluded with ief participation of the manufacturers of plugs and sockets and of electrical and electronic equipment, in July ofwith the publication of the norm ABNT NBR 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.


Discovering Electricity Was Easier”. South Africa and Brazil are the first countries in the world that have introduced the standard. NBR does not require shutters on the apertures, a further source of non-compliance with IEC However, the latter has smaller diameter pins 4. The page that gives an overview of South African plugs shows the full socket. The sockets are small enough that two can be installed in the space taken by a single Schuko iiec BS socket.

Since only plugs with partially sleeved pins are allowed to be distributed in Switzerland in order to minimize the risk of electric shocks. Practical consequences of the introduction of the new standard are among others: Pins are thicker compared to 10A plugs 4.

This article is about part one of IEC They are nominally Sockets are required to have shutters for the line and neutral apertures.

The live pins are in contact while exposed.

Museum of Plugs and Sockets: IEC standard household plug

NBR defines plugs and sockets for either 10A or 20A. The two types share several characteristics, but Ieec plugs do not fit in IEC sockets v. The IEC plugs are smaller than any other European plug with 16 A rating, being only slightly larger than the 2.

IEC standard household plug. 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.

There is no connection for the earthing contact. 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.


Plugs and socket-outlets 16 A V a. 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 pins of the Type L 10 A are 4 mm in diameter as in the Europlug and the earth pin is aligned with ifc two others no offset is presentmaking the Italian plug unpolarized. Old and 609006-2 multi-standard socketRight: IEC plugs are rated up to 16A.

IEC 60906-1

Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess. 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. Old outlet and plug, Middle: Irc common with the Europlug there is an insulating sleeve around the base of the line and neutral pins. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Old Swiss type 12 plug without partially sleeved line and neutral pins.

iecc IEC plugs are similar in size and shape to the Europlugwith the front profile being a flat hexagon. There are a number of non-compliance issues with IEC 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.
