I had these highlighted to me a few years ago and it was news to me. BS EN applies to circuit-breakers, the main contacts of which are intended to be connected to circuits, the rated voltage of which.

The requirements for circuit-breakers for equipment for example electrical appliances are contained in IEC In other words — in final distribution electrical switchboards of buildings which nominal current does not exceed A. Is there more in common? More details you can find in my blogs about standard https: Good luck for your job search!

The requirements and test methods for electromagnetic compatibility of circuit-breakers are contained in Annex J. Users found this page by searching for: That notion, combined with lack of knowledge or technical expertise, may have led to the misconception that there is one standard for all CBs.

IEC covers all the types of the breakers: Also known as IEC Pollution degree 2, impulse voltage bx, isolation voltage is the same as nominal voltage V.

The requirements and test methods bd electromagnetic compatibility of circuit-breaker auxiliaries are contained in Annex N. Consequences can be dire if residential CBs are used instead of industrial ones. Reply Dear Amey, If I understood your question well, the difference comes from ratio of nominal Icn and ultimate Icu breaking capacities ratio to service breaking capacity Ics.


Which one if for homes, which one for industry? Dear Max, you should verify the inrush current of the inductive load first. Reply Kevin, You should keep it simple: Reply Stephen, the Max Zs value is not always published in technical guides.

Reply I have started working in the industrial sector and am having trouble completing test certs for installations fed from panels. The concept behind it as it evolved in ss was a single standard for all low-voltage switchgear. Click here to find out how to access this document. Typically IEC certified CBs meet minimally required performance to proof proper protection of household installations: Utilities and manufacturing facilities use them: Unfortunately I have no answer for the question.

In any case you should pay attention on technical characteristics of devices like: The best way to avert them is tightly worded, highly enforced national regulations. Kindly let me know if it is available on the Schneider site. Want access to British Standards? Reply Thanks for useful information!!! Applies to circuit-breakers, the main contacts of which are intended to be connected to circuits, the rated voltage of which does not exceed 1,V a. The rating is the same in DC, there is a new magnetic threshold and voltage limitation.

Does it mean that the trip kA is different when the breaker is used for residential or non residential use? I can say is that mix-ups of standards happen.


These are all written into the Standard so if you are installing MCBs in to areas of a Polution Level 3 then that circuit breaker is not fit for purpose.

For example on the C60N. StrimaSep 3, Hello Jonas, No, your statement is not correct. You can download them from official standardization bureau sites. This site uses cookies.

The history of standard IEC may have something to do with it. I would recommend to find the answer by contacting technical support team in the country.

Reply Hello Lim, It is higher because of lower Icu breaking capacity ratio to service breaking capacity Ics, eg. You must log in or sign up to reply here.

BS EN – Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear. Circuit-breakers

In your given example its not exactly as you name it: They protect electrical power distribution of up to volts a. What is the right thing to say if they questioned us why we offered 6kAIC breaker? Yes, my password is: As for IECit relates to the a.

Reply Dear Koks, Yes it is safe choice. Assuming the breaker is a 3 phase VAC, 63A.
