IEC 62024-2:2020 is available as IEC 62024-2:2020 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 62024-2:2020 specifies the measuring methods of the rated direct current limits for small inductors. Standardized measuring methods for the determination of ratings enable users to accurately compare the current ratings given in various manufacturers’ data books. This document is applicable to leaded and surface mount inductors with dimensions according to IEC 62025-1 and generally with rated current less than 22 A, although inductors with rated current greater than 22 A are available that fall within the dimension restrictions of this document (no larger than a 12 mm x 12 mm footprint approximately). These inductors are typically used in DC-to-DC converters built on PCBs, for electric and telecommunication equipment, and small size switching power supply units. The measuring methods are defined by the saturation and temperature rise limitations induced solely by direct current. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- addition of Table 2 and Figure 2 b).
