Do you need a multi-user copy?




Applies to the IEC System of plugs and socket-outlets rated 16 A 250 V a.c. for household and similar purposes for the connection of equipment to distribution systems having nominal voltages between 200 V and 250 V a.c., in so far as dimensional requirements are concerned. The object of this part is to provide a standard for a safe, compact and practical IEC 250 V system of plugs and socket-outlets that could be accepted by many countries as their national standard, now or in in the near future. It is therefore recommended that any country in need of a new or replacement system for the nominal voltage range 200 V to 250 V a.c. adopt this standard as its only national standard.
