The International Electrotechnical Committee published a new edition of IEC 60269-1. IEC 60269-1 applies to “Low-voltage fuses – Part 1: General requirements.” The new edition is available for purchase on the IEC’s website.


“IEC 60269-1:2006+A1:2009+A2:2014 is applicable to fuses incorporating enclosed current-limiting fuse-links with rated breaking capacities of not less than 6 kA, intended for protecting power-frequency a.c. circuits of nominal voltages not exceeding 1 000 V or d.c. circuits of nominal voltages not exceeding 1 500 V. Subsequent parts of this standard, referred to herein, cover supplementary requirements for such fuses intended for specific conditions of use or applications.”
