This document provides specific emission and immunity requirements, tests and performance criteria for residual current-operated protective devices (RCDs), for household and similar use, for rated voltages not exceeding 440 V. Household and similar use corresponds to the description given in the generic standard IEC 61000-6-1 for residential, commercial, and light-industrial electromagnetic environments. This document is intended to be referred to by RCD product standards and is not intended to be used as a standalone document. Residual current-operated protective devices are: - Residual current operated circuit-breakers without integral overcurrent protection for household and similar use (RCCBs) covered by IEC 61008 series and IEC 62423; - Residual current operated circuit-breakers with integral overcurrent protection for household and similar use (RCBOs) covered by IEC 61009 series and IEC 62423; - Residual current devices with or without overcurrent protection for socket-outlets (SRCDs) covered by IEC 62640; - Portable residual current devices without integral overcurrent protection (PRCDs) covered by IEC 61540; - Devices with an RCD functionality for household and similar use according product standards following the group safety publications for general safety requirements for RCDs, IEC 60755. This edition applies if it is referred to as a dated reference in the relevant product standard. This document is also intended to be used as a guideline in the preparation of EMC requirements and tests for other product standards under the scope of SC 23E. It also specifies generic performance criteria intended to be transformed into specific performance criteria by the relevant product standard. Note: Examples of other product standards under the scope of SC 23E are: - IEC 62020-1 "Electrical accessories - Residual current monitors (RCMs) – Part 1: RCMs for household and similar uses"; - IEC 62606 "General requirements for arc fault detection devices"; - IEC 63024 "Requirements for automatic reclosing devices (ARDs) for circuit breakers, RCBOs-RCCBs for household and similar uses"; - IEC 63052 "Power frequency overvoltage protective devices (POPs) for household and similar applications"; - IEC 62752 "In-cable control and protection device for mode 2 charging of electric road vehicles (IC-CPD)"; - IEC 62955 "Residual direct current detecting device (RDC-DD) to be used for mode 3 charging of electric vehicles".

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.

The scope of IEC 61008-1 and IEC 61009-1 applies with the following additions. IEC 62423:2009 specifies requirements and tests for Type F and Type B RCDs (Residual Current Devices). Requirements and tests given in this standard are in addition to the requirements of Type A residual current devices. This standard can only be used together with IEC 61008-1 and IEC 61009-1. Type F RCCBs (Residual Current Circuit Breaker) and Type F RCBOs (Residual current Circuit Breaker with Overcurrent protection) with rated frequency 50 Hz or 60 Hz are intended for installations when frequency inverters are supplied between phase and neutral or phase and earthed middle conductor and are able to provide protection in case of alternating residual sinusoidal at the rated frequency, pulsating direct residual currents and composite residual currents that may occur. Type B RCCBs and Type B RCBOs are able to provide protection in case of alternating residual sinusoidal currents up to 1 000 Hz, pulsating direct residual currents and smooth direct residual currents. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2007 and constitutes a technical revision. The main changes from the first edition are as follows: - requirements and tests for Type F RCD have been introduced; - requirements and test for two-pole Type B RCD have been introduced; - new additional requirements and tests for Type B RCDs have been introduced to cover requirements for Type F too.

This European Standard applies to power frequency overvoltage protection devices (hereafter referred to as “POP”) for household and similar uses, with a rated frequency of 50 Hz, a rated voltage 230 V a.c. (between phase and neutral), intended to be used in combination with a main protective device being either a CB in compliance with EN 60898 1 or EN 60898 2, a RCCB in compliance with EN 61008 1 or a RCBO in compliance with EN 61009 1. NOTE 1 Requirements for POPs in combination with switching devices other than a main protective device, or a POP integrated in a MPD, are under consideration. NOTE 2 Requirements for POP with functional earth connection regarding temporary overvoltage withstand are under consideration. NOTE 3 A POP is not a protective device to be used for automatic disconnection of the supply in the meaning of HD 60364 4 41. They are intended for use in an environment with pollution degree 2 and overvoltage category III. They can be designed for factory assembly or for assembly on site. These devices are intended to mitigate the effects of power frequency overvoltages between phase and neutral conductor (e.g. caused by loss of neutral conductor in the three phase supply upstream the POP) for downstream equipment by actuating the main protective device when an overvoltage between phase and neutral is detected. NOTE 4 To mitigate means in this context that the POP will provide protection in most cases of power frequency overvoltages. NOTE 5 Protection in case of overvoltage between phases is under consideration. In case of phase to phase electrical supply system with rated voltage between phases 230 V a.c. and no neutral conductor, one line monitored POP in compliance to this standard can be used according to manufacturer’s instruction. The POP does not impair the protective function of the main protective device. This European Standard does not apply for protection against common mode over voltages. This European Standard does not apply to surge protective devices. This European Standard states: – the definitions of terms used for POP (Clause 3); – the classification of POP (Clause 4); – the characteristics of POP (Clause 5); – the preferred values of the operating and influencing quantities (Clause 5); – the marking and information to be provided for POP (Clause 6); – the standard conditions for installation and operation in service (Clause 7); – the requirements for construction and operation (Clause 8); – the list of minimum requirements to be tested (Clause 9).
