High-voltage fuses - Part 1: Current-limiting fuses

IEC 60282-1:2020 applies to all types of high-voltage current-limiting fuses designed for use outdoors or indoors on alternating current systems of 50 Hz and 60 Hz and of rated voltages exceeding 1 000 V. This eighth edition cancels and replaces the seventh edition published in 2009. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: – additional information concerning thermally operated strikers; – the division of ratings, characteristics and type tests into those applicable to all fuses and those applicable to particular fuse-link types and applications; – adjustment of Series II voltages and tests to meet present North American standard system voltages and applications; – clarification of requirements for fuse-links used in surrounding temperatures above 40 °C; and – clarification of homogeneous requirements for fuse-links containing one element.

Fusibles à haute tension - Partie 1: Fusibles limiteurs de courant

IEC 60282-1:2020 s'applique à tous les types de fusibles à haute tension limiteurs de courant destinés à être utilisés à l'extérieur ou à l'intérieur sur des réseaux à courant alternatif 50 Hz et 60 Hz et dont les tensions assignées sont supérieures à 1 000 V. Cette huitième édition annule et remplace la septième édition parue en 2009. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: – des informations supplémentaires concernant les percuteurs thermiques; – la division des valeurs assignées, des caractéristiques et des essais de type en un groupe qui s'applique à tous les fusibles et en un groupe qui s'applique à des types particuliers d'éléments de remplacement et des applications; – le réglage des tensions de la Série II et les essais pour satisfaire aux tensions réseaux normalisées actuelles et aux applications d'Amérique du Nord; – la clarification des exigences pour les éléments de remplacement utilisés avec des températures environnantes supérieures à 40 °C; – et la clarification d'exigences homogènes pour les éléments de remplacement contenant un élément.

HIGH-VOLTAGE FUSES –
Part 1: Current-limiting fuses
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as "IEC

Publication(s)"). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60282-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 32A: High-voltage

fuses, of IEC technical committee 32: Fuses.
This eighth edition cancels and replaces the seventh edition published in 2009.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
– additional information concerning thermally operated strikers;

– the division of ratings, characteristics and type tests into those applicable to all fuses and

those applicable to particular fuse-link types and applications;

– adjustment of Series II voltages and tests to meet present North American standard

system voltages and applications;

– clarification of requirements for fuse-links used in surrounding temperatures above 40 °C;
