Applies to electromechanical air break contactors for household and similar purposes provided with main contacts intended to be connected to circuits the rated voltage of which does not exceed 440 V a.c. with rated operational currents less than or equal to 63 A for utilization category AC-7a and 32 A for utilization category AC-7b, and rated conditional short-circuit current less than or equal to 6 kA. The contactors dealt with in this standard are not normally designed to interrupt short-circuit currents. Therefore, suitable short-circuit protection shall form part of the installation. This standard does not apply to: – contactors complying with IEC 60947-4-1; – semiconductor contactors; – contactors designed for special applications; – auxiliary contacts of contactors. These are dealt with in IEC 60947-5-1.
