This part of IEC 60884 applies to plugs and fixed or portable socket-outlets for a.c. only, with or without earthing contact, with a rated voltage greater than 50 V but not exceeding 440 V and a rated current not exceeding 32 A, intended for household and similar purposes, either indoors or outdoors. The rated current is limited to 16 A maximum for fixed socket-outlets provided with screwless terminals. This standard does not cover requirements for flush mounting boxes: however, it covers only those requirements for surface-type mounting boxes which are necessary for the tests on the socket-outlet. NOTE 1 General requirements for mounting boxes are given in IEC 60670. This standard also applies to plugs which are a part of cord sets, to plugs and portable socket-outlets which are a part of cord extension sets and to plugs and socket-outlets which are a component of an appliance, unless otherwise stated in the standard for the relevant appliance. This standard does not apply to – plugs, socket-outlets and couplers for industrial purposes; – appliance couplers; – plugs, fixed and portable socket-outlets for ELV; NOTE 2 ELV values are specified in IEC 60364-4-41. – fixed socket-outlets combined with fuses, automatic switches, etc. NOTE 3 Socket-outlets with pilot lights are allowed provided that pilot lights comply with the relevant standard, if any. Plugs and socket-outlets complying with this standard should be suitable for use at ambient temperatures not normally exceeding +40 °C, but their average over a period of 24 h does not exceed +35 °C, with a lower limit of the ambient air temperature of –5 °C. NOTE 4 Socket-outlets complying with this standard are only suitable for incorporation or mounting in equipment in such a way and in such a place that it is unlikely that the surrounding temperature exceeds 35 °C. NOTE 5 In the following country it is required that plugs and socket-outlets complying with this standard are suitable for use at ambient temperatures not normally exceeding 35 °C, but occasionally reaching 40 °C: CN. 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.
