IEC 60947-4-3:2020(E) applies to semiconductor controllers and semiconductor contactors for non-motor load intended to be connected to circuits, the rated voltage of which does not exceed 1 000 V AC.
It covers their use:
– for operations of changing the state of AC electric circuits between the ON-state and the OFF-state;
– with or without bypass switching devices;
– as controller, for reducing the amplitude of the RMS AC voltage.
