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 60309-5 has been prepared by subcommittee 23H: Plugs, socket-

outlets and couplers for industrial and similar applications, and for electric vehicles, of IEC

technical committee 23: Electrical accessories.

requirement, test specification or explanation of IEC 60309-1, these changes are made to the

relevant text of IEC 60309-1, which then becomes part of the standard. Where no change is

necessary, the words "Clause X of IEC 60309-1:1999 + A1:2005 + A2:2012 applies" are used.

INTRODUCTION

International Standard IEC 60309-5 has been written to address the needs in terms of plugs,

socket-outlets and ship couplers (ship connectors and ship inlets), herein referred to as

“accessories”, of IEC/IEEE 80005-3 . The purpose of IEC/IEEE 80005-3 is to define

requirements that allow compliant ships to connect to compliant low-voltage shore power

supplies through standardized shore-to-ship connection accessories.

Ships that do not require connecting with standardized low-voltage shore power supplies as

above may use accessories that are not covered by the standard sheets of IEC 60309-5 but

they may find it impossible to connect to these shore supplies.

Other low-voltage plugs, socket-outlets, ship connectors and ship inlets used for the

connection of certain ship types to low-voltage shore power supplies may be found in the

IEC 60309 series.

International Standard IEC 60309 is divided into several parts: IEC 60309-1 is entitled

General requirements, and comprises clauses of a general nature. The subsequent parts

address requirements dealing with particular devices.

PLUGS, SOCKET-OUTLETS AND COUPLERS
FOR INDUSTRIAL PURPOSES –
Part 5: Dimensional compatibility and interchangeability
requirements for plugs, socket-outlets, ship connectors and
ship inlets for low-voltage shore connection systems (LVSC)
1 Scope

This part of 60309 applies to a single type of plug, socket-outlet, ship connector and ship

inlet, hereinafter referred to as accessories, intended to connect ships to dedicated shore

supply systems described in IEC/IEEE 80005-3.

This part of IEC 60309 applies to three-phase accessories with an earth contact and with four

pilot contacts.

NOTE 1 In the following countries the term “ground” is used instead of “earth": US.

These accessories have a maximum rated current of 350 A and a maximum rated operating

voltage not exceeding 690 V 50/60 Hz.

NOTE 2 The various operating currents, voltages and frequencies required for various types of ship are set by the

shore supply system described in IEC/IEEE 80005-3.

These accessories are intended to be installed and operated by instructed persons

(IEC 60050-195:1998, Amendment 1:2001, 195-04-02) or skilled persons
(IEC 60050-195:1998, Amendment 1:2001, 195-04-01) only.

This standard applies to accessories for primary use outdoors in a seawater environment

when the ambient temperature is normally within the range of −25 °C to +40 °C.

NOTE 3 In some countries, other ambient temperatures may prevail and may need to be taken into account.

These accessories are intended to be connected to cables of copper or copper alloy only.

Socket-outlets or ship inlets incorporated in or fixed to electrical equipment which is part of

the shore connection system are within the scope of this standard.

In locations where special conditions prevail, for example where explosions are liable to

occur, additional requirements may be necessary.

Testing, ISO 9227:2012, and employing a 5 % (by weight) salt solution, for 200 h. At the end

of the test, the parts are removed from the chamber, and washed in clean running water not

warmer than 38 °C, to remove salt deposits from the surface. Parts are dried immediately.

Surface corrosion may be cleaned by light brushing, if required, to observe corrosion of the

underlying surface.

Parts are acceptable if, upon completion of the test, they do not show pitting, cracking, or

other deterioration more severe than that resulting from a similar test on passivated

X5CrNI18-9 (ISO name 4301-304-00-I) stainless steel according to ISO 15510:2014.
Exception: an enclosure constructed of X5CrNI18-9 (ISO name 4301-304-00-I) or

X3CrNiMo17-12-3 (ISO name 4436-316-00-I) stainless steel according to ISO 15510:2014 is

not required to be subjected to this test.
