IEC 60947-6-2:2020 This document applies to control and protective switching devices (or equipment) (CPS), the main contacts of which are intended to be connected to circuits of rated voltage not exceeding 1 000 V AC or 1 500 V DC.
It covers control and protective switching device (CPS):
- which provides protective and control functions for circuits and motors;
- where its control function is operated exclusively otherwise than by hand;
- which provides continuity of service after over-current conditions; and
- which can have additional functions, such as isolation or communication.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002 and its Amendment 1:2007. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- editorial changes according to ISO/IEC directives Part 2,
- alignments with IEC 60947-1:2020:
- markings (s, sol, r or f);
- constructional requirements including material requirements;
- requirements for screwless terminals;
- measurement method of the pole impedance;
- EMC requirement and testing;
- procedure to determine data for electromechanical CPS’s used in functional safety applications;
- harmonisation with IEC 60947-2:2016:
- operation tests of under-voltage relays and shunt releases;
- CPS for IT systems (Annex G);
- coordination with other short-circuit protective devices;
- alignments with IEC 60947-4-1:2018:
- test at the rated conditional short-circuit current Iq of protected switching devices;
- short-circuit tests harmonisation with North America;
- reliability data for functional safety applications (new Annex K);
- safety aspects related to electronic circuits and protective impedance (new Annex N);
- introduction of provisions covering the impact of higher locked rotor current to achieve high efficiency class;
- mention of dedicated wiring accessories;
- definitions and measurement method of the power consumption of the control circuit during holding and pick-up operations;
- load monitoring indicators (new Annex M).
