Residual current operated circuit-breakers for household and similar use - Part 3-1: Particular requirements for RCDs with screwless-type terminals for external copper conductors


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 62873-3-1:2016(E) applies to RCDs equipped with screwless terminals, for current not exceeding 20 A primarily suitable for connecting unprepared (see 3.5) copper conductors of cross-section up to 4 mm2. This part of IEC 62873 cannot be used alone but it is intended to be applied together with an RCD product standard (IEC 61008-1 or IEC 61009-1) if an RCD is equipped with screwless terminals.
