SC 23E Scope

SC 23E

To prepare and to update standards for:

- circuit-breakers and residual current devices of rated currents not exceeding 125 A and rated voltages not exceeding 440 V for protection against overcurrents and/or against electric shock in domestic and similar installations;

- residual current devices for monitoring the conditions of insulation of domestic and similar installations;

- circuit-breakers of rated currents not exceeding 125 A and rated voltages not exceeding 440 V designed to protect equipment for use in domestic and similar installations;

- electromechanical contactors for household and similar purposes;

- protective devices for battery-powered vehicle supplies.

The standards concern devices intended to be used by unskilled and uninstructed persons in installations or equipment not subject to maintenance and contain all specifications necessary for certification purposes: sets of samples to be submitted, test sequences to be applied and conditions for approval.

Close coordination is held with the work of SC 17B on standards for similar switchgear for general use.

The work of the subcommittees takes into account the specifications prepared by SC 28A, SC 77A and by TC 64.
