It is applicable only to three-pole devices for use in three-phase systems, and single-pole devices for use in single-phase systems. Two-pole contactors and starters for use in single-phase systems are subject to agreement between manufacturer and user. Contactors and/or starters dealt with in this document typically do not have adequate short-circuit interruption capability. In this context, this document gives requirements for: - starters associated with separate short-circuit protective devices; - controllers - contactors combined with short-circuit protective devices (SCPD). Contactors intended for closing and opening electric circuits and, if combined with suitable relays, for protecting these circuits against operating overloads are covered in this document. This document is also applicable to the operating devices of contactors and to their auxiliary equipment. Motor-starters intended to start and accelerate motors to normal speed, to ensure continuous operation of motors, to switch off the supply from the motor and to provide means for the protection of motors and associated circuits against operating overloads are dealt with. Motor-starter types included are: - direct-on-line starters; - reversing starters; - two-direction starters; - reduced kVA (voltage) starters; - auto-transformer starters; - rheostatic starters; - reactor starters. This document does not apply to: - circuit-breaker-based motor-starters; - single-pole operation of multi-pole contactors or starters; - two-step auto-transformer starters designed for continuous operation in the starting position; - unbalanced rheostatic rotor starters, i.e. where the resistances do not have the same value in all phases; - equipment designed not only for starting, but also for adjustment of speed; - liquid starters and those of the "liquid-vapour" type; - semiconductor contactors and starters making use of semiconductor contactors in the main circuit; - rheostatic stator starters; - contactors or starters designed for special applications. This document does not deal with components contained in contactors and contactor-based motor-starters, for which individual specifications exist. NOTE 1 Thermal electrical relays are covered by IEC 60255-149. NOTE 2 High-voltage current-limiting fuses are covered by IEC 60282-1 and IEC 60644.

This document specifies requirements for internal arc classification of metal-enclosed pole-mounted switchgear installations used for alternating current with rated voltages above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV with service frequencies up to and including 60 Hz. This document is applicable to three-phase, two-phase and single phase equipment. Enclosures may include fixed and removable components and may be filled with fluid (liquid or gas) to provide insulation. NOTE For the use of this document high-voltage (IEC 60050-601:1985, 601-01-27) is the rated voltage above 1 000 V. However, medium voltage (IEC 60050-601:1985, 601-01-28) is commonly used for distribution systems with voltages above 1 kV and generally applied up to and including 52 kV; refer to [1] of the Bibliography. This document does not preclude that other equipment may be included in the same enclosure. In such a case, any possible influence of that equipment on the switchgear and controlgear is to be taken into account.

This part of IEC 62271 applies to three-pole-operated fused circuit-switchers designed with
rated voltages above 1 kV up to and including 52 kV for use on three-phase alternating
current systems of either 50 Hz or 60 Hz.
They can be designed either as stand-alone devices, or be embedded in a switchgear and
controlgear assembly.
They are intended to be used for circuits or applications requiring only a normal mechanical
and electrical endurance capability. Such applications cover protection of HV/LV transformers
for instance, but exclude distribution lines or cables, as well as motor circuits and capacitor
bank circuits.
Short-circuit conditions with low currents, up to the fused circuit-switcher rated take-over
current, are dealt with by supplementary devices (strikers, relays, etc.), properly arranged,
tripping the circuit-switcher. Current-limiting fuses are incorporated in order to ensure that the
short-circuit breaking capacity of the device is above that of the circuit-switcher alone.
NOTE 1 In this document, the term "fuse" is used to designate either the fuse or the fuse-link where the general
meaning of the text does not result in ambiguity.
NOTE 2 Other circuit-switchers exist; see reference [4].
Devices that require a dependent manual operation are not covered by this document.

This part of IEC 62271 is applicable to AC switching devices designed for indoor or outdoor
installation, for operation at frequencies of 50 Hz and 60 Hz on systems having voltages
above 1 000 V and applied for inductive current switching. It is applicable to switching devices
(including circuit-breakers in accordance with IEC 62271-100) that are used to switch
high-voltage motor currents and shunt reactor currents and also to high-voltage contactors
used to switch high-voltage motor currents as covered by IEC 62271-106.
Switching unloaded transformers, i.e. breaking transformer magnetizing current, is not
considered in this document. The reasons for this are as follows:
a) Owing to the non-linearity of the transformer core, it is not possible to correctly model the
switching of transformer magnetizing current using linear components in a test laboratory.
Tests conducted using an available transformer, such as a test transformer, will only be
valid for the transformer tested and cannot be representative for other transformers.
b) As detailed in IEC TR 62271-306, the characteristics of this duty are usually less severe
than any other inductive current switching duty. Such a duty may produce severe
overvoltages within the transformer winding(s) depending on the re-ignition behaviour of
the switching device and transformer winding resonance frequencies.
NOTE 1 The switching of tertiary reactors from the high-voltage side of the transformer is not covered by this
document.
NOTE 2 The switching of shunt reactors earthed through neutral reactors is not covered by this document.
However, the application of test results according to this document, on the switching of neutral reactor earthed
reactors (4-leg reactor scheme), is discussed in IEC TR 62271-306.

term medium voltage is commonly used for distribution systems with voltages above 1 kV and generally applied up
to and including 52 kV.

This change is based on reported positive test and service experience of utility representatives in the maintenance team of this standard. 7.5.6, Table 14: a. Introduced the distinction of parts in “OG” (oxidizing gas) or in “NOG” (not oxidizing gas) replacing the former “air” and “SF6”; b. Increased the allowable temperature rise for some parts in groups 1 and 2 of Table 14 according to IEC TR 60943; c.
