PLUGS, SOCKET-OUTLETS AND SHIP COUPLERS FOR
HIGH-VOLTAGE SHORE CONNECTION (HVSC) SYSTEMS –
Part 1: General requirements
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 62613-1 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.

This bilingual version (2019-08) corresponds to the monolingual English version, published in

2019-05.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2011. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:

a) extension of the scope to an unlimited number of pilot contacts (previously limited to 3);

b) update of the Figures and deletion of their embedded texts;

c) insertion of tables of keys whenever required by the Figures.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
CDV Report on voting
23H/411/CDV 23H/442A/RVC

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

the report on voting indicated in the above table.
The French version of this standard has not been voted upon.

This document has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

In this standard, the following print types are used:
• requirements proper: in roman type;
• test specifications: in italic type;
• notes: in smaller roman type.

A list of all the parts in the IEC 62613 series, under the general title Plugs, socket-outlets and

ship couplers for high-voltage shore connection (HVSC) systems, can be found on the IEC

website.

Future standards in this series will carry the new general title as cited above. Titles of existing

standards in this series will be updated at the time of the next edition.

The committee has decided that the contents of this document will remain unchanged until the

stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to

the specific document. At this date, the document will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

INTRODUCTION

This part of IEC 62613 has been primarily written to address the needs of IEC/IEEE 80005-1

in terms of plugs, socket-outlets, ship connectors and ship inlets (hereafter referred to as

"accessories"), to deliver electrical power to ships in ports. The purpose of IEC/IEEE 80005-1

is to define requirements that allow compliant ships to connect to compliant high-voltage

shore power supplies through a compatible shore-to-ship connection.
These ships are described in IEC/IEEE 80005-1.

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

above may use accessories that are not covered by the standard sheets of IEC 62613-2, but

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

Low-voltage plugs, socket-outlets, ship connectors and ship inlets used for the connection of

certain ship types to low-voltage shore power supplies can be found in IEC 60309 (all parts).

PLUGS, SOCKET-OUTLETS AND SHIP COUPLERS FOR
HIGH-VOLTAGE SHORE CONNECTION (HVSC) SYSTEMS –
Part 1: General requirements
1 Scope
This part of IEC 62613 applies to accessories with
• three phases and earth with pilot contacts,
• one pole for neutral.

These accessories have rated currents not exceeding 500 A and rated operating voltages not

exceeding 12 kV 50/60 Hz.
NOTE 1 In some countries, the term "ground" is used instead of "earth".

These accessories are primarily intended for use outdoors, in a seawater environment, for the

shore supply of ships (ship-to-shore connection), in an ambient temperature within the range

of −25 °C to +45 °C.
NOTE 2 In some countries, other ambient temperatures prevail and are considered.

These accessories are not intended for use in hazardous areas. In such locations where

special conditions prevail, additional requirements can be necessary.

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 are within the

scope of this document.
