Residual current devices with or without overcurrent protection for socket-outlets for household and similar uses

IEC 62640:2011 applies to residual current-operated devices (RCD) incorporated in, or specifically intended for use with two pole socket-outlets, with or without earthing contact for household and similar uses (SRCD: socket-outlet residual current devices). SRCDs, according to this standard, are intended to be used in single phase systems such as phase to neutral or phase to phase or phase to earthed middle conductor. SRCDs are only intended to provide additional protection downstream of the SRCD. SRCDs are intended for use in circuits where the fault protection (indirect contact protection) is already assured upstream of the SRCD.

Dispositifs à courant différentiel résiduel avec ou sans protection contre les surintensités pour les socles de prises de courant destinés à des installations domestiques et analogues

La CEI 62640:2011 s'applique aux dispositifs à courant différentiel résiduel (DDR) incorporés, ou destinés tout particulièrement à une utilisation avec des socles de prises de courant bipolaires avec ou sans contact à la terre pour des installations domestiques et analogues (DDRPC: dispositif à courant différentiel résiduel pour les socles de prises de courant). Les DDRPC, conformes à la présente norme, sont destinés à être utilisés dans les systèmes monophasés tels que phase et neutre ou phase-phase ou entre phase et conducteur milieu mis à la terre. Les DDRPC sont destinés uniquement à assurer une protection supplémentaire en aval du DDRPC. Les DDRPC sont destinés à être utilisés dans les circuits où la protection en cas de défaut (protection contre le contact indirect) est déjà assurée en amont du DDRPC.

Naprave na preostali (diferenčni) tok z nadtokovno zaščito ali brez nje za vtičnice za gospodinjsko in podobno rabo

Standard IEC 62640:2011 se uporablja za naprave na preostali (diferenčni) tok (RCD), ki so vgrajene v vtičnice z ozemljitvenim priključkom za gospodinjsko in podobno rabo (SRCD: naprave na preostali (diferenčni) tok za vtičnice) ali so namenjene izključno za uporabo z njimi. V skladu s tem standardom so naprave na preostali (diferenčni) tok za vtičnice namenjene za uporabo v enofaznih sistemih, kot je napajanje med faznim in nevtralnim, med faznim in faznim ali med faznim in ozemljenim srednjim vodnikom. Naprave na preostali (diferenčni) tok za vtičnice so namenjene za zagotavljanje dodatne zaščite le od teh naprav naprej. Naprave na preostali (diferenčni) tok za vtičnice so namenjene za uporabo v tokokrogih, kjer je okvarna zaščita (zaščita pred neposrednim dotikom) že zagotovljena pred temi napravami.
