NEW!IEC 60669-1:2017 is available as IEC 60669-1:2017 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.This part of IEC 60669 applies to manually operated general purpose functional switches, for alternating current (AC) only with a rated voltage not exceeding 440 V with a rated current not exceeding 63 A, intended for household and similar fixed electrical installations, either indoors or outdoors. For switches provided with screwless terminals, the rated current is limited to 16 A. This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 1998, Amendment 1:1999 and Amendment 2:2006. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) change of the scope for motor load switches;     b) deletion of some dated normative references; c) changes to the definitions; d) in Clause 5 the number of specimens to be used for the tests are clearly given in Table 1 (Corresponding Annex A of IEC 60669-1:1998 was therefore deleted); e) in Clause 5 it was clarified on which switches the tests of Clause 19 shall be carried out; f) requirements concerning 13 A switches have been included; g) mandatory indication that a terminal is suitable for rigid conductor only; h) requirements and test conditions for flexible conductors have been included in Clause 12; i) requirements for pilot light units have been included; j) new test for self-ballasted lamp loads in 19.3; k) Table 20 has been completely redrawn to cover normal, mini and micro-gap switches and renumbered Table 21; l) new informative Annex B including changes planned for the future in order to align IEC 60669-1 with the requirements of IEC 60998 (all parts), IEC 60999 (all parts) and IEC 60228; m) new informative Annex C about the circuit development for 19.3; n) new informative Annex D including additional requirements for insulation-piercing terminals; o) new informative Annex E including additional requirements and tests for switches intended to be used at a temperature lower than −5 °C. Key words: Home switches, fixed electrical installation

This standard applies to electronic switches and to associated electronic extension units for household and similar fixed electrical installations either indoors or outdoors. It applies to electronic switches for a.c. only, for the operation of lamp circuits and the control of the brightness of lamps (dimmers) as well as the control of the speed of motors (for example, those used in ventilating fans) and for other purposes (for example, heating controls), with a rated voltage not exceeding 250 V and a rated current not exceeding 16 A. The operation and control as mentioned above are performed by a person via an actuating member, a sensing surface or a sensing unit, by means of touch, proximity, turn, optical, acoustic, thermal or any other influence. This standard also applies to electronic switches where the operation or control is made by physical means, for example, light, wind velocity, presence of persons, etc. This standard also applies to boxes for electronic switches, with the exception of mounting boxes for flush-type electronic switches. Electronic switches complying with this standard are suitable for use at ambient temperature not normally exceeding 25 °C but occasionally reaching 35 °C. In locations where special conditions prevail, such as in ships, vehicles and the like and in hazardous locations, for example, where explosions are liable to occur, special constructions may be required. NOTE 1 This standard is not intended to cover devices which are designed to be incorporated in appliances or are intended to be delivered together with a specific appliance and which are within the scope of IEC 60730 or IEC 61058-1. Examples of designs of electronic switches and functions are shown in annex AA. NOTE 2 Electronic switches without a mechanical switch in the main circuit do not provide a “full off-state”. Therefore, the circuit on the load side should be considered to be live.

This clause of Part 1 is completely replaced by the following: This part of IEC 60669 applies to electronic control devices, a general term to cover electronic switches, home and building electronic systems (HBES) / building automation and control systems (BACS) switches and electronic extension units. It applies to electronic switches and to HBES/BACS switches, for alternating current (AC) only with a rated switching voltage not exceeding 250 V and a rated current not exceeding 16 A, intended for household and similar fixed electrical installations, either indoors or outdoors. It also applies to electronic extension units with a rated supply voltage not exceeding 250 V AC and 120 V DC, such as sensors and push buttons. This document also applies to electronic remote control switches (RCS) and electronic time delay switches (TDS). Particular requirements are given in Annex FF. Switches including only passive components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, positive temperature coefficient (PTC) and negative temperature coefficient (NTC) components, varistors, printed wiring boards and connectors are not considered as electronic control devices. This document also applies to electronic switches and HBES/BACS switches for the operation of lighting equipment circuits and the control of the brightness of lighting equipment (dimmers) as well as the control of the speed of motors (for example, those used in ventilating fans) and for other purposes (for example, heating controls). The operation and/or control as mentioned above can be transmitted by an electronic signal via several media, for example, powerline (mains), twisted pair, optical fibre, radio frequency, infrared, etc. and are performed: - intentionally by a person via an actuating member, a key, a card, etc., via a sensing surface or a sensing unit, by means of touch, proximity, turn, optical, acoustic, thermal; - by physical means, for example, light, temperature, humidity, time, wind velocity, presence of people; - by any other influence. This document also applies to electronic control devices which include integrated radio receivers and transmitters. This document covers only those requirements for mounting boxes which are necessary for the tests on the electronic control devices. Requirements for general purpose mounting boxes are given in the relevant part, if any, of IEC 60670. This document is not intended to cover devices falling within the scope of IEC 60730 (all parts). Electronic control devices complying with this document are suitable for use at ambient temperature not normally exceeding 25 °C but occasionally reaching 35 °C with a lower limit of the ambient air temperature of −5 °C. NOTE 1 For lower temperatures, see Annex E. Functional safety aspects are not covered by this document. Functional safety requirements are covered by the standards of the controlled devices. In locations where special conditions prevail, such as in ships, vehicles and the like and in hazardous locations, for example where explosions are liable to occur, special construction and/or additional requirements may be required. This document is not intended to cover devices which are designed to be incorporated in appliances or are intended to be delivered together with a specific appliance and which are within the scope of IEC 60730 (all parts) or IEC 61058-1. Examples of designs of electronic switches and HBES/BACS switches and functions are shown in Annex AA. Additional requirements for electronic control devices using DLT-technology in accordance with IEC 62756-1 are given in Annex CC. Electrical interface specification for phase-cut dimmer used in phase-cut dimmed lighting systems are given for information only in Annex EE. NOTE 2 Electronic switches and HBES/BACS switches without a mechanical switch in the main circuit do not provide a "full off-state". Therefore, the circuit on the load side are to be considered to be live.
