This document applies to devices for power frequency overvoltage protection (hereafter referred to as "POP") for household and similar uses, with a rated frequency of 50 Hz, 60 Hz or 50/60 Hz, with rated voltage not exceeding 230 V AC (between phase and neutral), and with rated current not exceeding 63 A, either consisting of a functional unit in combination with a main protective device (MPD), or as one single device having opening means able to open the protected circuit in specified conditions. The main protective device is a circuit-breaker, an RCCB or an RCBO. NOTE 1 A POP, as one single device, is not a protective device to be used for automatic disconnection of the supply within the meaning specified in IEC 60364-4-41. POPs are intended for use in an environment with pollution degree 2 and overvoltage category III. Devices for POPs are suitable for isolation. POPs can be designed as a POP unit assembled to or integrated in a main protective device by the manufacturer or as an assembly of a main protective device mechanically or electrically coupled on site with the POP unit, or as one single POP having opening means able to open the protected circuit in specified conditions. POPs are intended to mitigate the effects of power frequency overvoltages between a phase and neutral conductor (e.g. caused by loss of a neutral conductor in the three-phase supply upstream of the POP) for downstream equipment by opening the protected circuit when an overvoltage between phase and neutral is detected. NOTE 2 In this context, the verb "mitigate" means that the POP will provide protection in most cases of power frequency overvoltages. POPs intended for monitoring one line-to-neutral conductor voltage can be used between two-phase conductors in a phase-to-phase electrical supply system not exceeding 230 V if both conductors are switched and declared as such by the manufacturer. POPs according to this document are suitable for use in an IT system provided all active conductors are switched. This document does not apply to protection against common mode overvoltages. This document does not apply to surge protective devices.

to +40 °C.
The use of this equipment on construction sites and for agricultural, commercial and domestic
appliances is not precluded.
This document also applies to cable reels intended to be used in extra-low voltage
installations.
In locations where special conditions prevail, for example, on board ships, in vehicles and the
like, or where explosions are liable to occur, additional requirements can be necessary.

This document applies to residual current monitors for household and similar purposes,
having rated operational voltages and a rated voltage of the monitored circuit not exceeding
440 V AC and rated currents not exceeding 125 A.
NOTE 1 The standard for residual current monitors having rated operational voltages and a rated voltage of the
monitored circuit exceeding 440 V AC is in preparation, as IEC 62020-2.
RCMs are intended to monitor the residual current of the installation and to give a warning if
the residual current between a live part and an exposed conductive part or earth exceeds a
predetermined level.
RCMs covered by this document are not intended to be used as protective devices.
RCMs detect residual currents circulating in an AC circuit (e.g. residual alternating current,
residual pulsating direct current, residual smooth direct current), whether suddenly applied or
slowly rising.
NOTE 2 RCMs for DC systems are under consideration.
This document applies to monitors performing simultaneously the functions of detection of the
residual current, of comparison of the value of this current with the residual operating current
of the device and providing the specified warning signal(s) when the residual current exceeds
this value.
RCMs supplied by internal batteries are not covered by this document.
The requirements of this document apply for standard conditions (see 7.1). Additional
requirements can be necessary for RCMs used in locations having severe environmental
conditions.
RCMs are intended for use in an environment with pollution degree 2 and overvoltage
category III. For an environment with a higher pollution degree, enclosures giving the
appropriate degree of protection are used.
RCMs in compliance with this document are suitable for use in TN, TT, and IT systems.
This document does not cover Insulation Monitoring Devices (IMDs), which are covered by the
scope of IEC 61557-8.
NOTE 3 An RCM is distinguished from an IMD in that it is passive in its monitoring function and only responds to
an unbalanced fault current in the installation being monitored. An IMD is active in its monitoring and measuring
functions in that it can measure the balanced and unbalanced insulation resistance or impedance in the installation
(see IEC 61557-8).

This clause of IEC 60320-1 is replaced as follows:
This part of IEC 60320 is applicable to two-pole appliance couplers for alternating current
only, with or without earthing contact, with a rated voltage not exceeding 250 V and a rated
current not exceeding 16 A, for household and similar general purposes and intended for
incorporation or integration within electric appliances or other electric equipment of multi-part
construction for 50 Hz or 60 Hz supply which depend on the weight of the appliance to ensure
correct engagement.
This document is also applicable to appliance couplers with auxiliary contacts rated for
alternating current, direct current or both, with a total rated current not exceeding 16 A.
This document is also valid for appliance inlets/appliance outlets integrated or incorporated in
appliances.
NOTE 1 Appliance couplers complying with this document are suitable for use in appliances which are used in an
ambient temperature not normally exceeding 25 °C but occasionally reaching 35 °C. However the ambient
temperature surrounding the appliance coupler can exceed these figures and can be declared by the manufacturer.
It is possible that the maximum working ambient temperature for the appliance inlet and for the connector can be
different.
NOTE 2 Appliance couplers dependent on appliance weight for engagement can be subject to spillage of liquid in
normal use. They are classified according to whether protection against liquid spillage is provided, when installed
in accordance with the manufacturer’s installation instructions.
NOTE 3 If appliance inlets according to this document are used with appliances or other equipment which can be
subject to spillage of liquid affecting the appliance inlet when the functioning part of the appliance or equipment is
seated on its power base, then protection against moisture is provided by the equipment.
NOTE 4 References to standard sheets within IEC 60320-1 do not apply to appliance couplers dependent on
appliance weight for engagement.
NOTE 5 Special constructions can be required:
• in locations where special conditions can prevail, for example, in ships, vehicles and the like;
• in hazardous locations, for example, where explosions are likely to occur.
NOTE 6 Additional auxiliary contacts can be used as part of the appliance coupler. An example of an auxiliary
contact is a contact used to supply a low power device or used to transmit signals for sensors and to/from a
microprocessor.

“boxes” and “enclosures”) for electrical accessories with a rated voltage not exceeding
1 000 V a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. intended for household or similar fixed electrical installations,
either indoors or outdoors.
Boxes and enclosures complying with this standard are suitable for use at ambient

exceed +35 °C, with a lower limit of the ambient air temperature of −5 °C.
During the installation the temperature may be outside the above temperature range
according to the classification of the boxes and the enclosures.
This International Standard is intended to apply to boxes and enclosures for electrical
accessories within the scope of IEC technical committee 23.
This standard may be used as a reference document for other IEC technical committees and
subcommittees.
A box or an enclosure which is an integral part of an electrical accessory and provides
protection for that accessory against external influences (for example mechanical impact,
ingress of solid objects or water, etc.) is covered by the relevant standard for such an
accessory.
This standard does not apply to
– ceiling roses;
– luminaire supporting couplers;
– boxes, enclosures and parts of enclosures specifically designed to be used for cable
trunking and ducting systems complying with IEC 61084 and which are not intended to be
