The IEC and BS systems have some common safety features in that plugs and sockets are polarized, and that sockets are required to have shutters for the line and neutral pins. An advantage of the IEC plug types is smaller physical sizes. Since only plugs with partially sleeved pins 60960-2 allowed to be distributed in Switzerland in order to minimize the risk of electric shocks.
They fully comply with the IEC standard. The International Electrotechnical Commission IEC has developed an international standard 609062- household plug system, to be used one day everywhere in Europe and other countries with V mains. A label can be inserted to mark the voltage of the local network. The standard was published in as ICE This article is about part one of IEC Details about plug dimensions are given in the table below.
Use British English Oxford spelling from December All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from April Pages using multiple image with auto scaled images. However, the pins of the Type L 69006-2 A are 4 mm in diameter as in the Europlug and the earth pin is aligned with the two others no eic is presentmaking the Italian plug unpolarized. This page was last edited on 25 Decemberat iwc However, since 1 Januaryonly type 11 and 12 plugs with partially sleeved line and neutral pins are allowed to be imported and distributed in Switzerland to reduce the risk of electrical shocks.
It was concluded with wide participation of the manufacturers of plugs and sockets and of electrical and electronic equipment, in July ofwith the publication of the norm ABNT NBR Offset of earth pin distance from center line. Plugs have partially insulated line and neutral pins.
Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess. There is no connection for the earthing contact. The two types share several characteristics, but Swiss plugs do not fit in IEC sockets v. Therefore, there is no compatibility between these grounded 3-pin plugs. Mains power connectors IEC According to the National Institute of Metrology Standardization and Industrial Quality in Brazil, the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards “began discussing the creation of a standard for plugs and sockets REFIT found that “the harmonisation of plug and socket outlet systems in Europe, by introducing changes in national wiring legislations would have important transitional periods above 75 years “and that the cost to “replace the old socket-outlets and the corresponding plugs of the appliances being used ” was estimated at billion Euro, “generating a huge environmental impact, producing some tons of electrical waste”.
Old outlet and plug, Middle: NBR does not require shutters on the apertures, a further source of non-compliance with IEC List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards.
IEC standard household plug. However, the latter has smaller diameter pins 4. Eic sockets are small enough that two can be installed in the space taken by a single Schuko or BS socket. The page that gives an overview of South African plugs shows the full socket.

Discovering Electricity Was Easier”. Sockets have a 10 mm deep recess, which eliminates the possibility of touching pins under tension with fingers or any object.
The IEC is similar to the Italian plug CEI 10 A “Type L”with the same front profile shaped as a flat hexagon and the same position of the line and neutral pins the centres spaced 19 mm apart. Archived from the original on The pins have a diameter of 4. NBR defines plugs and ice for either 10A or 20A.
