IEC 60077-5:2019 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is available in English only and provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between the official IEC Standard and its previous edition.

IEC 60077-5:2019 give additional or amended rules for high voltage (HV) fuses as a supplement to those given by IEC 60077-2. The high voltage fuses concerned are those connected into power and/or auxiliary circuits. The nominal voltage of these circuits lies between 600 V DC and 3 000 V DC, according to IEC 60850. These fuses can also be used in auxiliary AC circuits up to a nominal voltage of 1 500 V. This document together with IEC 60077-2 states specifically:
a) the characteristics of the fuses;
b) the service conditions with which the fuses comply with reference to:
- operation and behaviour in normal service;
- operation and behaviour in case of short circuit;
- dielectric properties.
c) the tests intended for confirming the compliance of the fuse with the characteristics under the service conditions and the methods adopted for these tests;
d) the information marked on, or given with, the fuse.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, issued in 2003. This edition includes the following main technical changes with regard to the previous edition:
a) test method of test duty III for verification of breaking capacity is reviewed.
